Discover books with confidence

Book Chat Noir focuses on helping you find similar readers instead of certain books alone. Browsing the personal bookshelves of other readers is a great way to find TBR (to-be-read) ideas. While you’re at it, if you think a bookshelf owner would enjoy a book that’s not on their bookshelf yet, you can send them a friendly book suggestion.
