Last year I was introduced to a Web site called Shelfari by my English teacher. Sure, she told my whole class, but I was among the few that actually went home and joined the site. Now I am addicted. Shelfari is a Web site that lets you create your own virtual bookshelf. Join, log in, upload a picture for your avatar, name yourself and click on the “Add a Book” option to begin your journey. Categorize what books “I’ve read,” “I plan to read,” or “I’m reading now,” then add books to “Favorites” and “Wish list.” Customize the kind of “wood” you want your bookshelf to be made of, and make it your own. You can write reviews of books you’ve read, rate them, or just simply move them to “I’ve read” as is. The best part about Shelfari is that you can interact with other readers who have the same taste in books as you. Visit another person’s profile. Click on “Books in common” to read their thoughts on books you’ve also read. Send notes to other readers, make Shelfari “friends,” and join a group or two. Having a Shelfari page is basically like having a MySpace or Facebook profile, only with books. If you’re an avid reader, I suggest you log on to http://www.shelfari.com and get goin’ on those reviews. Visit http://www.shelfari.com today.
