My talented artist friend and all around cool guy sent me this original piece of art in the mail, as mail, stamp and all. Someday I’m going to repay the favor.
Last night, I discovered Shelfari, a social networking site centered around books.
Shelfari introduces readers to our global community of book lovers and encourages them to share their literary inclinations and passions with peers, friends, and total strangers (for now). Shelfari was the first social media site focused on books, and will continue to innovate as it brings together the world’s readers.
So far, I’ve put 95 books on my shelf for the world to see. Though I’ll have to start digging through boxes soon if I want to continue adding more. I’m being very selective of which books I’m making public. Not that I’m ashamed of anything, but I want to make sure that I display titles that are worthwhile, leaving out any and all potential filler, which I’m sad to say does take up too much of my physical shelves here at home. Besides, is anyone really interested in my copy of “Chicken Soup for the Soul.” (I don’t actually own that.)
