Hipster Lit Flowchart Matches Hipsters With Their Next Favorite Book

Books recommendation website Goodreads has created a tongue-in-cheek flowchart that focuses on suggesting new books for a very specific group of readers—the hipsters.

According to Goodreads, “The life of the hipster is hard. Between worrying the band you love is about to go big and wondering whether it's finally time to wash your raw denim jeans, you don't have a lot of time to think about what to read next.”

Taking David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest as a starting point—if you have not read this, “you’re not a hipster”—the flowchart asks a number of simple questions that will hopefully lead the hipster to his or her next favorite book.

Whether you are a hipster or not, this is a fun way to discover new books that you may potentially love.
