Sony has a new interactive infographic that it hopes will help readers discover new books (pictured below).
By answering a set of questions about books, readers are shuttled to one of 15 highly popular titles. While the map may help the reluctant reader discover a newer title, or help Sony sell more of each of the ebooks (each of the book covers on the graphic links to the sell page at the Sony Reader Store), publishers worried about the problem of new book discovery will not be impressed.
For those publishers, the worry isn’t that readers won’t discover their most popular titles, it’s that readers won’t find their mid-list titles and books by new authors.
