How To Choose Your New Book
Tertulia, a sleek new app that takes a novel approach to online discovery, is the latest entrant in this increasingly crowded niche.
Tertulia aggregates book discussions and recommendations from across the web, drawing from social media posts, book reviews, podcasts, and news articles to generate reading recommendations tailored to individuals’ tastes and interests.
Users can get personalized recommendations by answering questions about which genres they like and who they want to hear about books from (options include space explorers, poets, chefs, historians, entertainers and book critics). Users can also sign in with their Twitter accounts, allowing the app’s algorithms to sift through their feeds and find book recommendations from people they follow.
