Beat the Algorithm: READY PLAYER ONE Edition, The Winner Is…

A few weeks back, Jenn took on Amazon’s algorithm to recommend a book for Erin, whose last great read was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

Amazon recommended Robopacalypse by Daniel H. Wilson and Jenn recommended Embassytown by China Mieville. Well, Erin got back to us and…drumroll…has decided to go with Embassytown!

Congratulations, Jenn!
