When You and Your Mother Can't Be Friends: Resolving the Most Complicated Relationship of Your Life?
From fiction to non-fiction, and everything in between, Alikewise doesn’t leave any page unturned when helping people find love through their favorite authors and books.
While most dating sites match their members by things like location and age preference, Masina and Sherman knew there was a market for a different kind of dating service.
The proof is in the solid following Alikewise has gained since its 2010 launch.
Thanks to a killer partnership, Alikewise is able to pair people through Amazon’s book recommendation engine. Then you might be compatible with someone who likes “Gone Girl.” It’s free to create a profile, browse through other users and send messages on Alikewise, which is available in the U.
S., Canada, Great Britain and several other countries.

You can skip that awkward moment where you sniff out each other’s book persona and get straight to the part where you geek out over your love for Ayn Rand.Or in Amelia’s case, you can, ahem, eliminate him if he happens to have enjoyed The Fountainhead.
