This is just a short message to say that I’m closing my account at Shelfari. Why am I doing this:
I have an account at Goodreads. I have been using both Shelfari and Goodreads alongside each other and just prefer Goodreads. Goodreads looks so much better and is far easier to navigate. Shelfari looks so old, dated and is slow and difficult to navigate in contrast to Goodreads.
The reading group I had at Shelfari was terrible to use. I have started one at BookClubIt, as mentioned in an earlier post – I am very happy with it and will use that instead.
I have offered the Reformed Reading group that I operated at Shelfari (there was no life in it anyway) to other members in the group to take over, so I have no more ties there. Shoould no-one take it up I will close that down also. There were only 9 members I think.
There is too much effort involved in running two mirror sites (sort of mirror) at both Goodreads and Shelfari. I would prefer to concentrate on the one and use my time more productively on other tasks – wesbites, blogs, etc.
Did I mention I dislike the Shelfari design a lot?
Anyhow, that is basically it I think. The only think left is to mention the sites I am at:
