I'm a voracious reader and love to get great science fiction and business book recommendations from my friends. I added my book collection to a cool Mac app called Delicious Library, but Delicious doesn't let me share my book collection with the world, and more importantly, doesn't let me talk about books with other people and get book great recommendations. Delicious is like being stuck alone on a beautiful tropic island. Pretty, but in the end, I'm still lonely ;-)
Enter Shelfari!! Shelfari has everything I always wanted to do with books. Organize and catalog my collection, discuss books with friends, get book recommendations, and much more. I'm an active user, and have invited many of my "book" friends to join the free service too!
But Shelfari is still an independent site I have to visit. How do I show off my Shelfari books in my blog? How can you find out what books I have, love, want, or am reading? Enter Shelfari's blog widget, which I am testing below!!!Here is my starter list of "Eric's Alltime Favorite books" from Shelfari!! Obviously I need to go through the nerve racking process of selecting more of my "favorite" books, but you get the idea.
I'm still testing this for Shelfari, but I'm going to provide feedback and migrate the widget to my sidebar!
