Alexandria Digital Literature was one of the first serious e-book publishers, known partly for its exceptional recommendation engine -- rate stories you've already read, and Hypatia, the librarian, by comparing your ratings to the thousands of other users, would recommend stories you'd probably like. She was surprisingly successful, much more so than, say, Amazon's recommendations.
Unfortunately, Alexandria's economic model was much less successful, and they folded years ago. The company was reconstituted for a time as the Seattle Book Company, but that evolved into a publishing services company that no longer has any connection with their past as an e-book publisher.

- I like the graphics.
But AlexLit is gone and largely forgotten.
