Yeah I know, another social networking site to set up a profile on and keep track of?
But for authors, this one is significant. Shelfari is similar to GoodReads, but it’s part of the Amazon.com empire and the extra data you get entered there will show up on your book pages at Amazon.com and in some cases on your author page (you have set up an author page at Author Central haven’t you?
