I've added yet another goofy widget to my media diet page. This one displays the books I'm working on at the moment.
It's created by Shelfari, a social networking site built around users cataloging their personal libraries. I've decided to use it to track my reading habits, just as I'm using last.fm to record the music I listen to.
Capriciousness has always been my guide. I've never followed how many, or what type, of books I read over time. So, this will be something new for me. I feel a bit guilty about all the conspicious consumption lately. But I am curious to see how things stack up at the end of the year.
This plugin requires Adobe Flash 9.
You can scroll back and forth through the titles, or click on a book to learn more. As I add more books throughout the year, the shelf here should fill itself.
