Have just come across Shelfari and wondered if anybody had used it. It does seem to be linked to amazon.com and I can't find any information for http://amazon.co.uk.

Can books be added manually do you know.

Yes - books can be added manually.

And by that I mean that you can manually add the books you have / have read / are reading, but if there is a book missing from the site you can also add it to the site. This last is unlikely, but does happen in rare cases. Though that doing this tends to end up with multiple orphan copies of the same book, but you can mark them as such, and they get cleaned up :)

Annoyingly Shelfari lets you download lists of your books, but not upload - so if you have a list of books somewhere you can't just use that.

I like Shelfari a lot, and I'm not really that sure why - I've tried other book/library management online sites, and it's Shelfari I tend to stick with.

Thanks Garscadden, think I might register. I like the fact that it looks like you can see the fronts of your books when you log in and it's that I'm really after, as I find the front cover goes a long way to reminding me what I have.

Suze - that is exactly what you can see, you can normally change the cover that displays as well - useful as US and UK versions of books tend to have different covers. It actually got me quite interested in the differences in covers at one point, but that is quite nerdy :)

It is a pity it doesn't synch to Amazon in the UK, but then it isn't like alternative sites do.

Just adding a few books now but it's going to take a while as I have over 800. Can I change the display so I get a bookcase instead I'd a bookshelf or is it not possible. I have had a look but am still finding my way around the site.

The three shelf view is the only one I can get.

Suze says:
michael, there isn't any way to add them automatically. That's a perk for the states I'm afraid, and we have to add them one by one. I've decided not to bother and just use one of the kindle apps to see my book covers.
