A new year is a great time to clear out the old so to speak. My husband repainted my office last week and in the process I found myself going through my filing cabinets and bookshelves. I came across lots of things I had forgotten about and one of them is Shelfari. This is a free social network where users can create a virtual bookshelf to show what they've read, see what their friends are reading, and recommend, collaborate, and communicate about these books. Students can rate or review books on their bookshelf and invite friends to join their network and set up a shelf of their own. Students can even personalize their shelves by creating different sections (and book covers for each section) of their shelf. Go ahead and check it out. There's a link to it in the Links tab above.
