“With financial backing from Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, Slice Bookshelf joins a crowded library of social reading sites Thursday. Like Shelfari, LibraryThing and GoodReads, Bookshelf promises “a fun way to discover and share books with your friends” on the Web. After several months of preliminary testing, the Web site officially went live Thursday morning. It’s the latest offering from Slice, a Palo Alto, Calif. Internet company whose flagship app helps consumers keep track of their online purchases.
