Shelfari.com is a new social software site that I thought I would pass along to the faithful readers of my blog (all three of you). On the site you are able to put together a "shelf" of your favorite books. You can rate the books and write your opinion of each. Don't worry if you don't remember the author or title of a book, you can simply type in a subject and a list of books will be brought up. (You can also put in an ISBN, but I wonder how many people who are not librarians, booksellers, or writers know what an ISBN is?) It's a neat way of keeping track of your favorite books (necessary for those times when someone says, "can you recommend a good book?" and your brain freezes). You can also share your recommendations with friends, and, if your friends aren't yet a part of shelfari, you can send them an invitation to join! Visit the site and take a look around and start putting together YOUR list.
Earlier this week I told you I would let you know if I thought The Departed should have won Best Picture at this year's Oscars. Nope!
