Bookshelves

Registered users of Manybooks can create private and public "bookshelves," i.e. lists of links to ebooks on this site, such as those on the Users Public Bookshelves page.

Why create bookshelves?

These lists have all kinds of uses, such as:

  1. List all the books you've read lately.
  2. Catalog books about a particular subject in a special collection.
  3. Track books you loved or books you hated.
  4. Keep a memorandum of books you want to read but haven't yet had a chance to download.
  5. For more ideas, see the list of public, user-generated bookshelves created by other Manybooks users.

Create a bookshelf:

  1. Log in to Manybooks.
  2. Click "bookshelves" in the left sidebar.
  3. Fill in the name of the bookshelf you want to create, and click "Create Shelf."
  4. If you make a mistake, you can click the X to delete the shelf.

Add books to a bookshelf:

You can add or subtract books at any time.

  1. Log in to Manybooks.
  2. Go to any book's title page.
  3. Click on "Add to bookshelf" in the left sidebar.
  4. Click on the name of the bookshelf you want to add the book to.
  5. To delete a book from a bookshelf, click the X to the right of the book title.

Share your bookshelf:

Bookshelves are private by default. You can share them via a public link and an RSS feed and by adding your bookshelf to Manybooks' public list.

  1. Log in to Manybooks.
  2. Click "bookshelves" in the left sidebar.
  3. Click on the name of the bookshelf you want to share.
  4. Click "Share bookshelf." You will see something that looks like this:
    Public Link and Installer.app repository: http://manybooks.net/shelf/7460
    RSS feed: http://manybooks.net/user_rss/7460.xml
    Show in collections
    Hide bookshelf
  5. The "Public Link" URL is the public address of your list, which you can send to your friends, link to from your blog or post on Facebook or in a discussion forum.
  6. With the RSS feed, others can subscribe to your list using a feed reader, so they'll be able to see each new book you add to your bookshelf. You can also use the RSS feed to import your bookshelf additions into any application that uses RSS feeds, such as tools that make automatic updates to your Facebook or Twitter account.
  7. For recommendations, special collections, and other lists of public interest, click "Show in collections" to display your shelf and your username on Manybooks' user-generated bookshelves page.
  8. If you wish to make your list private again, click "Do not show in collections" to remove it from the public bookshelves page and "Hide bookshelf" to turn off other displays.
