Book Recommendation

Overview

Built a virtual book buddy who can recommend books based on your taste. Once a while every bookworm has taken advice from their peers about which book shall they read next or what they can explore more in terms of reading. We picked this project as it was funny & helped many of us to get more recommendations once built.
