Anyone on Shelfari please post a link or name to your bookshelf. Here's the link to my bookshelf. I also added this to my Kindle Board signature.

I'm on Shelfari as Susan M.  I go over there occasionally and find it is a good resource for finding some similar books I would like to read.  I put a Kindle tag on all of my books that are also available in Kindle format.

How did you make the link for your shelf?

Then change all the < and > to [ and ] and copy and paste into your signature or message.

I added a bunch of books from memory (and my manage my kindle history list), but it's a start.  I changed my signature to have a link.

I'm not going to work out links today (it's Sunday, therefore football, and the Eagles are on soon!), I'm on Shelfari as sharyn.  If you tap me as a friend, please mention the Kindle. ;)

It's social networking - kinda like Facebook - for your books. Your books get divided into three categories: Going to Read, Reading Now, Have Read. You can rate and review books, keep a list of favorites, books you own and a wish list. Books are displayed with their covers on a bookshelf. You can sign up to be "friends" with other people, and see their bookshelves.

If you click on the shelfari icon in my signature, it will take you to my bookshelf.

What is Shelfari?:
Shelfari is a social network devoted to create a global community of book lovers by encouraging users to discuss and share their favorite books with friends and strangers. Their mission is to "...enhance the experience of reading by connecting readers in meaningful conversations about the published word."

Founded in 2006 by Josh Hug and Kevin Beukelman, Shelfari was one of the first social media sites devoted to books. In 2007, Shelfari received around $1 million in funding by Amazon.com.

Devoted to creating a community of book lovers, Shelfari allows avid readers to find like-minded folk and to share their love of reading with others.

This is a picture of my Shelfari Widget on Myspace page.



Click on the Shelfari icon in my signature and you will be taken to my bookshelf.

I would love to have a Shelfari type feature here. I like to consolidate my online activities, if at all possible.

Shelfari is neat but I have decided for now not to use it. I have trouble keeping up here! ??? ...and I must have time to Kindle. :)
I started with Shelfari last year. I don't keep up with reviews and groups. I go over when I want to update or check to see what everyone else is reading.

I'm spending too much time here and not as much reading.

I hooked so many friends and relatives on to Janet Evanovich. I finished #13 but haven't read #14.

I'm about to finish #4. I wish more were available in the 3 for 1 price like the first ones. When I really like a series, I have to have them all. This is going to be expensive.

So you're not reading them on Kindle? I gave my sister a Kindle and keep the account under my name. That way we can read the same books.

We both like a lot of the same authors. I've also turned her on to some new authors that I like.

I am reading them on the Kindle. I have my daughter and father on my account with me. So far, I am the only one reading these but that may change soon. I hope I can get my mother to try one - but she is sharing my dad's Kindle - so I don't know how much time she gets on it.

Shelfari is a wonderful database for listing your books. When I enter a new book I put tags. I usually tag like this>
If the book is "John Adams" by David McCullough. My tags would be Kindle, david McCullough,c

All my tags are listed below my bookshelf. If I want to see all the books on my shelf that I have on Kindle I can hit the Kindle link below the shelf and all my books will be put on the shelf. I have a tag for David McCullough and by clicking the link below the bookshelf I can see all the books I own and have read by David McCullough.

If I mouse over without clicking on one of my books, I can see all the other members that have read that book and if there are any reviews. When I was in high school I read the Tod Moran mysteries by Howard Pease. By mousing over the books by Howard Pease I found 4 other members that listed his books.

I just updated my bookshelf and have more to do. I joined over a year ago and enjoy listing the books I've read and plan to read.
