Shelfari was a social cataloging website that allowed users to discuss books and build personal virtual bookshelves.
Shelfari allowed book lovers to create virtual bookshelves and keep track of what they read. The site also allowed its users to create groups that other members could join, create discussions, and talk about books, or any other topic.
Shelfari worked as an online gathering place for readers and book lovers to share information about books.
Shelfari "virtual bookshelf" feature helped users see covers of books that they entered, with popups to show the user's book information such as review, rating, and tags. Users could also edit Shelfari catalog. However, some changes had to be approved by Shelfari librarians.
Authors can add information about their books to attract readers.
