The Six Degrees of the Modern Library feature at ModernLib.com has been
updated.  The number of titles supported now totals 300, twice as many as
before, although there are still quite a few titles without lists entered.
 There are a total of 1,759 recommendations in the system.

Six Degrees is located here:

Here's some background in case you don't know about this:

The Six Degrees of the Modern Library is a ModernLib.com feature that
provides the recommended reading lists of Modern Library titles.  These
recommended lists were printed on some of the dust jacket types.  So if
you're trying to decide what to read next but there's a favorite title in
the ML catalog that you don't have (or don't have the jacket, or the right
jacket), you can use this feature to get the ML editors' recommendation
for other titles to read.

In a cascading fashion, Six Degrees allows you to follow the trail of
recommendations 'degrees' away.  (You can read more about this on the Six
Degrees page.) Even if you are not interested in recommended titles to
read, it is rather interesting to see what the ML editors recommended
based on a given title.

If you can provide the ML-provided recommended lists for those titles
which have lists but are as yet missing from Six Degrees, we appreciate
your submitting the data.
