As some of you may know, Amazon Reading List was a LinkedIn app that disappeared from LinkedIn recently (early 2013, I think).

(The app page still exists, but if you try to "add" the application, you get an error:
You have reached the limit of applications on your homepage and your profile. Please remove an application from both pages before adding another application.)

I kinda liked the app, and had dozens of books listed in it as "read" or "want to read". I had put a little effort in writing some reviews, too.

Now, at a Stack Overflow question I just saw this interesting comment:

The previous Reading List data can now be resurrected at Amazon's shelfari.com

I registered to Shelfari (using existing Amazon account), which seems pretty nice and usable. I was looking for an option to find/import my old Amazon Reading List data, but couldn't find it. Anyone know how to do this, if it's indeed possible?

Well, turns out it can be done very easily at http://www.shelfari.com/addbooks where there's an option Import Your LinkedIn Reading List. Clicking "Import" will bring you to an import view like this:

There's a FAQ item about this too: Reading List (LinkedIn) Import.

I just tried it and my books and reviews got imported just fine.

    This option doesn't seem to work anymore since the link from shelfari to import list from linkedin is broken now. Any other options to try ? Thanks! – user77722 Sep 25 '14 at 18:06

After importing reading list from LinkedIn to shelfari (and adding other books) you can then use your public shelf as one of the websites that you add to LinkedIn.
