What is on your bookshelf ?

In case you are interested what is on my bookshelf then you can now see it in all its glory here (well, only part of it in fact as I haven't finished going through my books and entering their details).

This is from a service called "Shelfari" and I quite like this virtual browsing idea (it is also easy to export a list of titles in your library which may be useful in the future). I am also hopeful that it will be a good source of identifying new books (though Amazon also captures what books you looked at in addition to the ones you bought as well as having a large network to draw data from, they have no information about books that you have obtained through other channels).

Hey, we want to see all the books on your bookshelf, not just the ones which are convenient to project a desired image.

Don't forget all those comics and also your collection of Mills and Boon titles.

(I guess you keep other "reading" material elsewhere - like under the bed)

LOL

I have a lot of books and this will take sometime (but I do intend to do it) - those were the books closest at hand.

Actually, another weakness with the site I think is its lack of support for non-English books - so my Japanese "comic" collection is probably not going to show up there anytime soon.
