A Map of Authors

Have you ever wondered if other readers associate the same authors together that you do? Do you find one author often reminds you of another? Or if you read one author’s book, you instantly think of another one you have to check up on? Better yet, have you ever read all your favorite author’s books and don’t know where to go next? Well look no further!

Here’s a small visual on how it works!
