Shelfari Is Closing! BUT, You Can Merge Your Account with Goodreads!

Goodreads icon 100x100
If you have a Shelfari account, you can move the content to GoodReads. 
(Shelfari’s Notice below.)
To move your Shelfari account to GoodReads, go to:
For the past few years, Amazon has supported two online communities of readers: Shelfari and Goodreads. Both services share the same mission – helping readers find new books and share their reading – so it makes sense to merge them and create a great experience for readers on just one platform: Goodreads. We plan to complete the transition of the Shelfari community onto Goodreads by March 16, 2016.


We’d like to invite you to now move your books across to Goodreads. To make it easy for you, go to Move To Goodreads and you’ll find instructions on how to do this. You’ll be set up and back to discovering and discussing books in no time!


What will I experience on Goodreads?

If you’re not familiar with Goodreads, the core features you love on Shelfari – keeping track of books you’ve read and want to read, and connecting with fellow readers over your shared love of books – are at the heart of the Goodreads experience. You’ll also be able to enjoy additional services and features including:

  • 1. On-the-go access to your bookshelves and friends’ updates through the Goodreads iOS and Android apps.
  • 2. The ability to use Goodreads on most Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets.
  • 3. Personalized book recommendations from the Goodreads recommendation engine based on books you’ve enjoyed.
  • 4. More ways to share and enjoy your love of reading through the Goodreads Reading Challenge, the ability to write rich text reviews, and enter to win books in our popular Goodreads giveaways program, and
  • 5. Connecting with your favorite authors, including using Goodreads Ask the Author feature.
