The good people at Bookhu -- inventors of the "Gender Compatibility Engine for books" -- tipped me off via Twitter about a recent "facelift" to their website, which cleaned up the general look &Â feel and made it easier to search and browse for "compatible" titles.
I wrote about them back in January, and noted that while the concept is a very good one, the execution was lacking in some areas -- most notably in genre segmentation. All that's fixed now: Bookhu's introduced a one-click genre navigation along the right side of the page, in addition to a much more intuitive way of displaying a book's gender bias. See the description below:
Pulling from Amazon.com's user-driven reviews, Bookhu makes sense of all the madness by cross-referencing the reader's five-star-scale review and their gender. The result: men don't have to feel so alone in reading -- and not really loving -- The Elegance of the Hedgehog.
