Link: Flashlight Worthy

Flashlight Worthy: Handpicked book recommendations on hundreds of topics. 

I just happened upon this website last night, and I've yet to really delve into it, but it seems like an interesting idea.  As the subtitle indicates, this site offers topic-based lists of book recommendations.  There are currently 429 lists-- and at first glance, at least, plenty of variety.  I find myself drawn to quite a few lists, such as the following:
  • Epistolary Novels
  • Run, Zombies Ahead!
  • Nordic Noir
  • These Books Have Gone to the Dogs
  •  Literary Thrillers for the Book Lover
  • Creepy Houses That Must Be Explored
  • Brevity is the Soul of Wit: Rec. Short Story Collections
  • Cold Weather Mysteries
  • Some Books of Dry Humor, Old and New
  • The Top Ten Most Influential Fictional Characters
  • Where Utopia Distorts into Dystopia: Dystopian Novels
Well, that's it.  Just passing along (and bookmarking for my own future use) a link of possible interest.
