MetaFilter is one of the web's most successful online communities with 65,000 registered users, 60,000 discussion threads, 70,000 question threads and over one million comments. It has been going for more than eight years.
During that time, lots of people have asked for book recommendations on specific topics - e.g. things like Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series
, with unreliable narrators
, condemned by the Vatican
, for the mature woman
or for a book club on the verge of dissolution
Handily, all book questions and answers are collated in the MetaFilter Wiki - ReadMe!
