    Pros: 

    Find the resources you need from the recommendations of others. Something I would have liked when I was first starting to learn to program

    Cons: 

    Not a very fluid search experience

    The idea is amazing, and I'm going to use this. Though, I have an issue with how limited the search system makes me feel. The tags don't entirely reflect what's available on the site, and if a tag doesn't exist it makes me think that no one has submitted anything related to it. Otherwise, good app. Keep working on it!

    Pros: 

    Love the opportunity to feel like an expert in anything.

    Cons: 

    So much choice, I get sucked in!

    General knowledge is a fading art, and reading books is being replaced by clickbait and soundbites. This website lets you feel like you're investing in your intellect and you avoid trying to figure out which is the best resource by scrolling through Amazon reviews

  • Pros: 

    Awesome concept and beautiful execution

    Cons: 

    Can't be blamed

    Brilliant idea come to life. The website is easy to navigate while the design is clean and aesthetically pleasing. The bookshelves are such a helpful way of organising and listing what you've read. Looking at other people's bookshelves is a fun way of finding what's good to read. I like that I can follow different people and the categories that I am interested in. It is both educative and enjoyable. A website for the personal and the processional.

    It's cool to use people-driven recommendation platform when everyone around is building AI-driven stuff.

  • Pros: 

    I'm a scholar and for me ShelfTaught it's great to look for "non-academic" books that I won't find with traditional academic research tools

    Cons: 

    None

    Definitely a smart idea, and it is also very easy to use
