Sharp readers of this blog may notice a new addition to the sidebar on the right. It's a little widget that links you to my Shelfari page. What is Shelfari, you may ask? I'm not sure. I just joined recently, after being invited by a friend and I'm still trying to figure it out. You know that function of Netflix where you can list your friends and see what they're watching, what they rated things and what they recommend? Well, it seems to be something like that for books. It's a neat way to list what you're reading, rate books (and review them if you feel up to it) and see what other people are reading.
I can't decide if it's a lot of work to create your "shelf" or if it's the sort of thing friends would love to do to kill time at work. Take a look and if you think you might like to join, let me know and maybe we can be buddies and stare at each others' shelves. Here's a link to mine. There's not much on it yet, just the past few books I've read.
