Looking for Your Next Read? I am....

Since I am spending the end of November searching for my December Read of the Month I thought it would be nice to share a tool to help readers find a new book.  I realize that readers can use both Goodreads.com and  Amazon.com to help find book recommendations.   Believe me, I love browsing both sites but sometimes I just want some book titles recommended quickly.  This is where "The Book Seer" comes to the rescue.  One of my co-workers tipped me off to this helpful site.
