That quirk is supposed to be fixed nowadays, so that it now recommends only
one book by each author (at a time). I second the recommendation. I've found
several new authors and books through Alexlit and have sometimes used it to
check what my neighbours (other people whose ratings are used to decide what
it recommends me) have thought of a book I'm considering buying/reading.
