Earlier this afternoon a friend brought the social community for bookworms ("Shelfari") to my attention, and I found it hospitable enough to register an account for my use. I liked the idea of being able to survey a virtual bookshelf of everything I've read in recent years, so I invested a little time this afternoon in adding everything from the TWATL archives to my shelves.

Okay, maybe more than a little time. Point is, now my Shelfari account has everything I've read here on the blog, minus a possible percentage of books that I overlooked. I also added some of the books I read in 2006 and 2007 prior to getting in the habit of raiding nearby libraries on a weekly basis. Because I filled the shelves from most recent to oldest, the most recently added books may be new to you: this blog's original home was on something called a "MySpace" account and those first posts were copied to my archives when I made the switch to Blogger.

I'm interested in meeting other bloggers and readers who have shared their books on Shelfari; my username there is listed above, and if you want to hunt me down via email address, just tack on I will continue to update Shelfari in the future with books I'm reading or want to read, and will add a link to the sidebar once I find an appropriate but tidy place to stick it.


  1. I have an account with Shelfari (user name is Joy H), but I haven't updated it in many, many months. Also have accounts with Library Thing and Good Reads. I think they all three have good and bad points. Yes, I like that virtual bookshelf, too, but I've always found Shelfari a little hard to use. But thanks for reminding me about it - I should go back and do some updating.

  2. I have a Shelfari account, although I'm not on it as often as I'm on Blogger or anything. (I'm Golden Eagle.)


Thank you for visiting! Because of some very clever spambots, I've had to start moderating comments more strictly, but they're approved throughout the day.
