What no more Shelfari after March ... What is GoodRead?

To quote Han Solo from Star Wars "Chewy I have a BAD feeling about this!" ..

Oh no did I hear the word MIGRATION, no software orientated person likes that word as it just spells TROUBLE. Expect to see a dozen posts or more complaining about loss of data and "feature drift"

That is the GLASS HALF EMPTY interpretation of Googles announcement but the first "Book Export" to GoodRead looked pretty, ... well, incomplete ... missing lots!


STOP PRESS ... UPDATE: Message received after I sent a query to the Amazon HELP or FAQ section ...

ONLY TIME WILL TELL ... I can now add a new book to my old Shelfari but I fear this is merely the start of a long SAGA!
