Last year I used Shelfari in my reading class and the 7th grade students enjoyed it. I set a group and we had online discussions about books. It appears as though now the students must have an Amazon account before they can get a Shelfari account and I do not like that. Anyone know if this is true or if there is another site similar to shelfari that is classroom friendly?

goodreads.com is the site I use personally to rate and review books I read. You don't need an Amazon account. You might want to try that!

Thank you Mint 23. You are right. I have an account and looked into it. It is very similar to shelfari. My class signed up today and we are good to go!

Do you have your kids write reviews? I want my kids to read reviews and write them but our access to internet is limited?

I would love to know more about what you do there?
