Site That Recommends Books: What’s So Great About itcher?

Firstly, you should know that anything to do with books is good.

Book shops, book ends, book marks, bookworms, books books books books books.

You can't beat 'em. You really can't.

What you can do (are you ready? This is good), is get better book recommendations by using itcher - a nifty little app that will learn your taste and give you personalised book recommendations based on what you like.

It's brilliant.

Here at itcher we are total bookworms and love that we can give you more books to read. Not only that, but we also dabble in movie, music and games recommendations too!

Told you it was good.

But, if you need more convincing... fine.


What's So Great about itcher? 

itcher is far from a one trick pony...


1. You Get to Read More Books

If there's one thing better than getting new recommendations it's the simple fact you'll have more good books to read.

Do it in bed, do it in the kitchen, do it on the train - with less stress surrounding what to read next, you'll love how much more reading you'll be able to do.


2. Your Recommendations Are Accurate

Getting book recommendations is one thing, but getting book recommendations that you'll actually like is a completely different story.

Your friend Matt might rave about a new book but that doesn't mean you'll love it.

Your friend Matt might rave about a new book but that doesn't mean you'll love it.

You and him have different tastes, so just because he enjoyed it, it doesn't rule out the possibility of you spending 10 hours reading it only to be painfully bored the whole way through.

Why rely on that when you can use a much smarter (sorry, Matt) app?


3. Check Ratings and Read Reviews

One friend recommending one book to you might get it wrong, but looking at a bunch of reviews and ratings before you dive into a book can be really useful.

For some, they might prefer to go into a book not knowing the slightest thing about it, but others are a little more inquisitive - the reviews and ratings are you for guys!


4. It's Really Easy to Use

Not only is itcher so smart, it's also really simple to get started.

Not only is itcher so smart, it's also really simple to get started.

All you have to do is rate 5 books you've already read - you can either search for titles or just hit browse - and then bam! New recommendations ahoy.

Easy, fuss-free.


Well, Do You Believe Us Now?

Reading will always be magical.

You can give us all the technology in the world, but we'll still love to read. So why not use technology to make your reading experience even better?

Reading will always be magical.

And the good thing is that now, you can discover something new every day, and from the comfort of your home.

The Same Movie Over and Over? That Can’t be Good!

There are so many great things out there, it should be forbidden to entertain twice the same way! To always listen to the same album, read the same book over and over again, or to watch several times the same movie (except if you’re watching Pulp Fiction of course)!

I don’t really mean it, as listening to your favourite song once in a while feels great! It sets a mood you can only find when listening to it! But you see my point. So many things to discover, it can sometimes be a shame, or even a waste of time to miss out on an opportunity because your favourite movie is on TV tonight.


So How to Discover those Gems, you Ask?

A New iPhone app for Finding Entertainment

Whether you’re a cinephile or you just couldn’t imagine life without music, you need to join the itcher community now! And same goes with books and games. Here’s why…

You’ll have a new favourite movie every day!

You’ll have a new favourite movie every day!

Let’s face it, not all movies have the Hollywood budget for their promotion and loads of them often don’t make it, only because of lack of awareness.

Imagine you just love watching movies, but not the blockbusters. You like independent cinema from South America, and especially the films from the 1990’s. It can sometimes be difficult to find the right movie! The movie that will become your new favourite one!

But now, thanks to itcher, all you have to do is pick up your iPhone, set your preferences in the app, and you’ll have a new favourite movie every day!


How it Works you Ask? Quite Simple and yet So Effective!

Once you’ve downloaded itcher, you need to set your preferences, what you like and what you don’t like, what you love and what you hate, or even what could be alright if you had to compromise.

Itcher will create your profile, based on your tastes in movies, books, games and music, and put you in contact with people with similar tastes and interests. You will then start sharing comments and recommendations with those people and in the end, discovering hidden gems thanks to your new itcher mates!

The beauty of this app is that the more you use it, the more accurate it gets and the more pleased you’ll be by the recommendations. And I don’t even mention the time savings you’ll get!


Freedom

You won’t have to spend hours calling or texting your friends for recommendations, that most of the time you won’t enjoy!

And you won’t be depending on YouTube recommendations anymore, which are more and more influenced by advertisement or “Most Viewed” (a factor clearly irrelevant in this case).

The more you use it, the more accurate it gets and the more pleased you’ll be by the recommendations.

The more you use it, the more accurate it gets and the more pleased you’ll be by the recommendations.

So you got it now! Stop wasting time and explore what the artistic world has to offer...


Reading Recommendation Website itcher: Guide to Non-Fiction

As a reading recommendation website, here at itcher we love all kinds of books.

Big books, little books, books you can only buy in independent shops and books that are all over Amazon - we love the lot.

Today, for a bit of a change, we thought we'd show you some of the best categories of non-fiction books because hey, they get lift out a little bit and overshadowed by all the brilliant fiction that's around.


The Non-Fiction Categories You Have To Check Out

Thought only fiction books were worth reading? Think again!

Cookbooks

With drool-worthy photography and unbelievably delicious recipes, cookbooks are a thing of beauty. Not only are they fun to flick through but they make great kitchen companions, particular if you're not, shall we say, blessed in the kitchen department.

Cookbooks make fantastic gifts too, whether it's for a friend or just a treat for yourself!​


Autobiographies

We all get a little bit obsessed with someone famous from time to time - whether it's an actor, a comedian or maybe it's just someone you admire.

We all get a little bit obsessed with someone famous from time to time - whether it's an actor, a comedian or maybe it's just someone you admire.

Autobiographies are the ultimate indulgence, so read all about these people you're keen to know more about, all in their own words.


Coffee Table Books

Coffee table books are usually large, picture-led books that usually find themselves (yep) on your coffee table.

Coffee table books are usually large, picture-led books that usually find themselves (yep) on your coffee table.

The idea behind them is that they're easily browsed through and don't require too much attention. If you host guests a lot - or your friends are always popping over for tea - a good coffee table book can provide a 5-minute read while you boil the kettle.


Quote Books

Whether you're into political quotes, funny quips or famous last words, there's no end of quirky quote books out there to provide you with a quick read. Most can be read in one sitting, but many people prefer to just dip in and out of them whenever they like.

Whether you're into political quotes, funny quips or famous last words, there's no end of quirky quote books out there to provide you with a quick read.

If you're not a big reader but you don't want to be scrolling through your phone just before you go to sleep, try keeping a book of quotations by your bed for a light evening read.


(Sort of) Education Books

If we say educational books we know you're going to immediately have horrifying flashbacks of school textbooks, so perhaps we'll ease you in by saying we mean books that can teach you something.

And it doesn't have to be algebra or the history of Europe, you can find books on almost anything you want to learn more about, be it cinematography, blogging or maybe some kind of martial arts.

Books like these will turn you into an expert in no time.

Movies are perhaps the best way to end an evening. At itcher, we really do think movies are an event.

Patri, one of our team members, says the movie experience before she even hits play...

"The ‘enjoyment’ starts well before I even know which movie I’m going to watch. I think having a bit of time off to watch a film sounds like a good idea. Then I'll decide on when nd when the time comes, I see how I feel… ‘Will an action movie do it today?’ ‘How about a funny comedy with a British touch?’ ‘Hm, I remember now I saw that trailer 2 weeks ago and made a mental note of it…’

Once I decide which movie will make a difference I get everything else ready - now it’s all about the details!

Dessert, popcorn, maybe a nice meal... definitely a lovely cup of tea!

As the time approaches I get excited. Yep! Time to relax! I then set the room, dim the lights, switch the big monitor on, get the sound going and make sure my dog is next to me.

Dessert, popcorn, maybe a nice meal... definitely a lovely cup of tea!

It’s all about the before and after. Not just the movie. The movie is part of the ‘me’ moment. It’s just a lovely thing I do for myself every now and then.

And that’s how a good movie makes me feel: good about myself!"


The Real Movie Magic

...and we think that's how movies should be!

Something to look forward to, something to enjoy. Watching a movie isn't just something you do out of boredom, it's an occasion.

And there's nothing like a really good, personally recommended movie to make that occasion even better.

Film Recommendations Engine Itcher On: Best Quotes on the Magic of Movies

As itcher is a film recommendations engine, it makes sense that we're all a bit movie mad.

Today we wanted to collate some of the very best quotes on the magic of watching a movie, including guest appearance from a member of the itcher team!

Let's take a look shall we?

The Very Best Quotes on the Magic of Movies

“We love films because they makes us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small. They allow us to escape and to dream and to gaze into the eyes that are impossibly beautiful and huge. They fill us with longing. But also. they tell us to remember; they remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heart broken.”

Nina LaCour, Everything Leads to You


“Everything I learned I learned from the movies."

Audrey Hepburn


“A good movie can take you out of your dull funk and the hopelessness that so often goes with slipping into a theatre; a good movie can make you feel alive again, in contact, not just lost in another city. Good movies make you care, make you believe in possibilities again.”

Pauline Kael, For Keeps: 30 Years at the Movies


“Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.”

Martin Scorsese


Films point straight to my inner self: the instincts, the gut-feelings, the fears, dreams and desires. They are such a powerful orchestral combination that I'm often moved to tears. They're for me an emotional therapy, between illusion and reality.

Ona Estapé, itcher


“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that's why we're all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it's actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.”

Tim Burton, Burton on Burton


“Oh how Shakespeare would have loved cinema!”

Derek Jarman, Dancing Ledge


“There are so many movies like this, where you thought you were smarter than the screen but the director was smarter than you, of course he's the one, of course it was a dream, of course she's dead, of course, it's hidden right there, of course it's the truth and you in your seat have failed to notice in the dark.”

Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up

We'll start with someone underrated - our app is slick, easy to use and, well, it just looks good. But enough about aesthetics, let's get down to the good stuff.

5. Write and read reviews

One of the best things about watching a movie is the conversation that follows. Whether you enjoyed it or not, rate and write reviews for any movies you'd like to.

There are already plenty of reviews for each movie so why not take a read of them before you watch it?


6. Watch the movie immediately

Instead, hit the Shop tab and itcher will show you ways in which you can watch the movie - some of the options being instant!
