I'm Really Liking

Sometime last year I discovered the website Shelfari. At first the site ran slow and didn't have too many features (the site was still fairly new). Then by the end of last year the site made some serious upgrades (to the UI and overall speed). Since then they've consistently added new functionality and the user experience is amazing to say the least.

About a week or two ago I started telling some close friends about the site and I've seen a few of them blog good experiences about it. So I just wanted to give my two thumbs up as well :).

If you read at all and want to look at a really good social networking site based on reading books (as well as somewhere to record all the books you've read), make sure to check it out.

Also feel free to take a look at my bookshelf. I don't have all of my books on there (I can't remember every book I've read), but I've gotten quite a few of the ones I can remember (plus I also read about 1 book a week, so I'm always adding more :) ).

Steve 'Cutter' Blades's Gravatar @Jeff -

Wow, they have upgraded. I guess my first trip to Shelfari most have been wwwwaaayyyy early on, because this looks much more friendly/functional.

Interesting library Jeff. I see we have similar tastes. If you haven't read it, you should check out The Postman by David Brin (way better than Kostner's movie), and for mystery/suspense type of stuff look to James Patterson, John Sandford (the Prey series) and Tony Hillerman.

Jeff Coughlin's Gravatar @Ryan:
I had only recently discovered when I showed a friend He quickly bailed on his goodreads account and moved everything to shelfari. I haven't personally needed a developer API with them yet. However, now I'm curious to see what either offers (not that I'll ever use them :) ).

I've heard others say that about The Postman. I should put it on my list of books to check out (thanks). As for the other authors, I'm always looking for more really good ones that I can share and suggest with friends. I'll definitely have to check them out.

There are so many more books I have not listed on my shelf (from past reads) -- not that I didn't want to list them, I just don't remember them all :)

RobW's Gravatar I had looked at shelfari a ways back and ended up going with as it was more mature at the time. But it looks like shelfari has
matured quite a bit since then. Worth taking a second look.

Sam's Gravatar Shelfari is slick! Definitely leaning more towards it now. Too bad most of my friends are on goodreads. :(
