Reader's Robot
Has many reader reviews by genre. A favorite is "Have the Robot Recommend Books". You click on a section (e.g. Science Fiction), then go through each of the sections of book selections and choose the books you've read and liked. Then the robot can pick other reviews from folks who have liked the same book.
