Online bookshelves

Hi,

I want to build an online bookshelf, so I can share what I'm reading with you.

So far I found Shelfari and Librarything, both are leaving me somehow unsatisfied.

I like the way shelfari looks, but I like to be able to upload my own covers, which seems impossible.

I like the possibility to upload my own covers to librarything, but I dislike the interface.

Are there any alternatives? Is there a way to just export my Mobile Reader Library to a html-bookshelf and create my own webpage with it?

Thanks!
Pascal

Maybe Goodreads would be worth exploring for you. However, I don't know if you can upload your own covers.

I checked: at Goodreads, you have to be a librarian (50 books on the shelf and apply to become one), since if you change covers, you change them globally...

I found some more: aNobii and BookMesh

I liked Librarything most of them all, so if you like, you can view my collection of Kindle Books here

I was looking at these today. All seem similar. Goodreads claims to have the most members.
