I can't remember seeing this before, but I just kinda stumbled on this and it seemed worth sharing.

At some point or another everyone knows someone who has asked for a book recommendation or two. Most people who aren't already into science fiction and/or fantasy type literature will likely not be able to get into it without a good recommendation, so why not make life easier on themselves and/or you?

This well done visual guide does that for you by asking a few simple questions and basing recommendations off your answers to them.

I've personally read most of the science fiction recommendations, I suppose I'll have to get started on the fantasy stuff pretty soon. But gosh darn it! There's just not enough hours in the day and I'm juggling half a dozen books right now as it is, have numerous others in my digital bookshelves to read after and a handful sitting on the corner of my desk for when I've got a chance to just crash on the couch some rainy afternoon and get to reading in true peace. (I am seriously hooked on The Night Soldiers series by Alan Furst and the Charlie Parker series by John Connolly right now. Thank you FourFingerWu and Corpsegoddess for those amazing recommendations! Those are the big two I have to finish before moving on to any other series.)

EDIT: Link where you can see the picture much better (as in you can zoom in and see it in a much more readable/larger font).

EDIT 2: And naturally I found a similar graphic for just literature in general.
