I wanted to share with you today a neat tool that I came across in the bookish world called ShelfJoy! ShelfJoy is a website filled with different bookshelves created by bibliophiles based on their favorite reads, and books that you should know about. The best part about this website is that you can search specifically for books under a certain theme or topic, and the database will create matches for you based on your interests! I love how ShelfJoy is essentially a virtual library, and there are many different book reviewers and book enthusiasts available to help you find your next favorite read. They are even available to talk to on Facebook messenger if you have any questions, concerns or want to know more about the different shelves and how the website is run.
Once you begin looking through the different bookshelves on the website, you are able to learn more about the people who created the different shelves and why they chose the books that they did. Each book is also linked to the Amazon purchase page where you can buy the book, or you can add the book to your own personal reading list! One of my favorite parts about the different bookshelves and book selections is that the creator of the shelf can apply different emotions to the books chosen to let the reader know how the book made them feel. Readers can then also add emotions to the book once they read it, and this is great if you are looking for a book that will make you feel a certain way.
ShelfJoy is an invaluable resource for bibliophiles looking to connect with other readers or those who are looking for their next read. It is highly interactive with different links to social media, and you might even meet someone who has the same reading tastes that you do! I highly suggest taking a look at this website to see what new books you might find, as well as what new friends you might meet. You can create your own account through Twitter, and this will help you to begin creating your own bookshelves nad helping others find books that they might not otherwise know about! You can never go wrong with a good, book centered community.
