New recommendations: What should you borrow?

Member sturlington recently proposed the following:

“You know what would be a neat feature? If I could get a list of books from a friend’s library that are recommended for me based on my library. For borrowing/mooching purposes. For instance, my husband is putting in his books right now, and it would be cool to quickly get a list of his books that I might enjoy.”

I thought this an excellent idea, and easy to implement, so I did it. It’s a great way to scout out your friends’ libraries.

If you’re signed in, you can see the feature on every other (public) member’s profile page. Or you can check out what books I should borrow from Jeremy (a lot), and vice versa (a few).

Come talk about it on Talk.

    Very neat filter. Thanks!

    Love it. Combine this with Local – Local Members and you may be able to find an LTer close enough to actually consider borrowing/loaning.

    You have done it again! A week ago, I never would have thought of this, but now that I have seen it, I can’t imagine how I ever lived without it!
