Hello hunters! Maker here. We got the idea of building this chrome extension after seeing this wiki page containing thousands of literary awards. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li... We wished if there was a way in which we could make the discovery of great books easier by going through the ones that have passed the scrutiny of world's best editors and story-tellers. Hence, we decided to build BookBuster, a companion extension to our website, www.shelfjoy.com that picks through a single award-winning book and presents it on a new tab. The awards span through hundreds of genres, from military fiction to best LGBT stories. One thing is certain, every book is a testimony to great story-telling and writing. I sincerely hope you enjoy the books as much as I did in coming up with this extension!

@sia_steel Hi Aakanksha. I've installed it. But while I enjoy your site shelfjoy.com, I wish the user could have some influence over the genre of books recommended on the new tabs. I rarely read fiction these days, yet it seems that most if not all of the recommendations are Fiction. My favorite categories are biographies, business stories, space, science, movie industry, entrepreneurs, etc.

@hrv50 Very valid concern here. I've been thinking of giving users the power to pick the kind of books they'd like to know. Thanks for this feedback Tracy!
