The first time I heard of Shelfari was in 2007 when my dad invited me to join this page of book lovers. I wasn’t sure about joining at first but I got an active account and as Shelfari tells me, I’ve been a member since June 17, 2008.
8 years. That’s a long time, and now in 2016, we the members of this amazing site, have to say goodbye. Because Amazon bought both Shelfari and Goodreads and lost around a million dollar investment in the site, so they decided to kill it because no profit is coming their way. At least, we’ll have Goodreads.
I will miss this site more than I would like to admit. I open many tabs first thing in the morning and one of them (always) has been Shelfari. Today I read, is the last day of this site on the internet. I’ll miss those brown shelves. I’m opening it all day long until it goes off.
