The Shelfie app, available for free on iOS and Android (download Shelfie), lets you take a shelfie of your books and get the ebooks either for free or at a deep discount. Our app also lets you connect with other readers, discuss and rate books as well as find your next reads.
One of the most interesting ways to use Shelfie is to see your book on someone else’s shelf and then discover a new book that you’re interested in reading right there beside it. There’s millions of people that have read the same book as you. Shelfie app lets you connect with these people, browse their bookshelves and see if they have something on their shelf that you might be interested in reading.
Once you’ve found a shelf and a book that looks interesting to you, you can explore what other readers are saying about that book. Go beyond the description and see what real readers with similar interests to yours are reading.

I’ve decided to explore ‘The Black Swan” and see who else has read this great book.
Once I scroll to the bottom, I can see that 96 other users have this book on there shelves. Lets click “See All” and explore that a little deeper.

I decided to explore “Good to Great” a little more because I’ve heard about the book before and the genre is exactly what I like to read. I read some comments about the book and decided to go ahead and buy the iBook.
