Is anybody out there?

Prodigal Daughter, who is much more technically savvy than we are, encouraged us old folks to get onto Goodreads and Shelfari. Which we did--but we can't figure out who's out there (Shelfari's search engine is particularly weak)! If any of our bloggy friends would like to join us, we would love that! If you can figure out the system, our user names and email on both sites are:
Denis L aprodigaltouristATgmailDOTcom
Frances E prodigalwifeATgmailDOTcom
Hope to see you in the shelves!
Denis & Frances
PS: Signed up on Librarything too but haven't put any books there. Is that one as popular?

Goodreads!!!shelfari!!! never heard of them-i've only just got into blogging and i'm just back from choosing books off the shelf at local library. I'll have a cup of tea then I'll try anything...

Willow--After I put a few books up, I will try to find you...
Linens & Royals--yes, apparently these sites are replacing those lovely people in bookstores who used to make suggestions. I remember that! If you wish I can send you an invite, that I know how to do! GoodReads has a nice royalty group, you would like that!
