Last week, our very own Rachel took on Amazon’s algorithm to recommend a book for Jill, whose last great read was George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones.

Amazon recommended The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and Rachel recommended The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Well, Jill got back to us and…drumroll…has decided to go with The Pillars of the Earth

Nicely done Rachel and happy reading Jill. The blogger takes the first round.

Humans 1, Math 0.
