Shelfari allows users to list the books they own, as well as books they are currently reading,
for free. They also provide a Flash-based plugin to put on blogs (though this doesn’t work with WordPress). However,
for those who prefer a more light-weight and customizable view of the books they are reading (or who just don’t like
Flash), there is BookList.
BookList provides a template-based mechanism to display the contents of your Shelfari shelf (or currently reading list,
or top ten) in a customizable widget.
BookList uses Shelfari’s SOAP interface, which is also used by Shelfari’s own Flash plugin for blogs.
BookList is based on WP Audioscrobbler by Marc Hodges.
