I like the idea of tracking your own reading (and the recommendation algorithms aren't bad), but I use Goodreads myself.

I'm on it. It's pretty solid, with a bajillion great reading groups to join (or you could start one yourself if you were so inclined). Very expansive collection of books on there - the downside is that if they are out of print (or simply not on Amazon) then they don't list it on there. Goodreads is also a solid one that I've used now and again, but I prefer the layout/use of Shelfari.

I'd never heard of this, but it looks like it could be a useful tool. Of course, it's absolutely staggering to ask a bookworm like me to list every book they've ever read @_@

Pretty much, yes. These are my thoughts exactly.

I once used Livingsocial Books, but once that closed down, I needed something else like it. I was directed to Goodreads but then a friend told me about Shelfari. I've been a fan ever since. :)
