Under Community - Discussion Forums there is a section called "Discussions by Genre".  If you click on the genre of books that you like, you'll find lots of people who like the same thing.

You may also want to look under games. The Virtual Boxes there are by genre. I for instance belong to the mystery/thriller one, and love it!

If you rate a lot of book using the star system,  you'll be able to click on someone's name and see your similarity index.  Long-term, when a lot of people have rated books, that works, but short-term and longterm, the above suggestions are excellent.

The best way is to just start hanging out on the boards, especially the boards for your favorite genres.  Start threads about your favorite books, authors.
