Tonight I am excited to announce that Shelfari is making a preview available of a new way for users to share their shelves! By copying some simple code into a blog or website you can now show off the books you love and even make money doing it! Here are some of the cool features of our blog / website plug-in:
- Customize exactly which books you want to show off -- You can show your entire book collection, one of the lists you've created (wish list, top 10, currently-reading list), or all of your books with a common tag.
- Make Money! We know lots of people make money from recommending books on their blog or website. We have set up the plug-in to easily allow you to put in your own Amazon Affiliate ID, so when your visitors go to buy the book, you will get the money.
- Customize to your site - You can size the plug-in to fit your site as needed.
In the next few days we are going to add a simple wizard to the Shelfari site that will automatically create the "code" you need to put this on your blog or website, so keep your eyes open for it. And for those adventurous types, we have a detailed post below showing you how to do this today.
So, without further delay, check out Kevin Beukelman's Top 10 Books:
