Created & maintained by Steve Jain, 100 Million Books fosters wild serendipity rather than accurate relevance:
100 Million Books (is) a browser extension that shows you a new idea from a new book every time you open a new tab. There are no categories and no social features and no algorithms whatsoever. From fiction to nonfiction, old to new, science to literature, etc… it presents you the world.
This is not a technical choice but a philosophical statement, an attempt at making society technology advance society by reducing filter bubbles induced by algorithms & bots.
100 Million Books is available for free here for Chrome, and you can make it your homepage on any other browser with this URL: http://100millionbooks.org/standalone/.
