Shelfari is a social cataloging website for books. Shelfari users build virtual bookshelves of the titles they own or have read, and can rate, review, tag, and discuss their books. Users can also create groups that other members may join, create discussions, and talk about books, or other topics. Recommendations can be sent to friends on the site for what books to read.

Shelfari was launched on October 11, 2006. In February 2007, Amazon.com invested $1 million in Shelfari, and moved to acquire it a year later in August 2008.
