WernerBot yells at you to read more when you talk to it.Wernerbot.com

Werner Herzog is a prolific and brilliant filmmaker (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Into the Abyss and the Bad Lieutenant remake, among many, many others). And you could be too, if you'd stop wasting time and start reading.

At least that's what a free new Facebook Messenger bot sharing his name tells you, whenever you message it.

WernerBot is (in typical German form) short and blunt, and frankly a bit rude. It seems to never actually acknowledge what you're saying, but instead changes the subject back to why you should be reading. Occasionally it throws out a short list of recommendations--stuff it assumes you're not reading, then tries to send you off to read again.

We suggest you head over to this page to install it and give it a try, whether you need motivation or just some entertainment.
