    Not to go full "Dropbox in a weekend", but if you're technical enough to self-host, this is something you can build for yourself

    Everyone is going straight to embeddings, but it'd be easy enough to use old school NLP summarization from NLTK (

    Hook that up a web scraping library like and get a summary of each page.

    Then embed a site map in your system prompt and use langchain ( to allow GPT to query for a specific page's summary.


    The point of this isn't to say that's how OP did it, but there might be people seeing stuff like this and wondering how on earth to get into it: This is something you could build in a weekend with pretty much no understanding of AI

    Next, there's a bunch of new natural language processing features. With the power of NLTK and the Moby Thesaurus, you can now find synonyms, antonyms, hypernyms, and hyponyms for any text. Once the word databases are downloaded to your machine, an internet connection is not required to use these features.

    (1) For large scale processing/tokenizing your data I would consider using something like NLTK or Spacy. That's if your books are already in text form. If they are scans, you'll need to use some OCR software first.
