I get...uh...a tad excited when presenting my options to book club. ? My friend asked if there are any books I don't like, I told her, "YES! They're just not in this bag!" Only the best of the best for a book club pick!

erzascarletbookgasm Awesome. Have fun! 1y
MaureenMc 😍🙌 1y
Mitch @Mdargusch it‘s sooooo good. It was a present. I‘d 100% recommend it ( my bibliotherapist was amazing her name was Lottie). They get super booked up though so you have to book quite a way in advance. Do it! 1y
LeahBergen I‘m so jealous! 😍 1y
arubabookwoman Wow! What a great gift! I‘ve never heard of this. U.S. bookstores better get hopping! 1y

#LMPBC @suvata I‘ve just joined group V. Thanks so much for organizing... I presume we will check with our group so as to pick a book no one has read yet ??! I‘m all new to this. Sounds fun 👍🏻🙏🏻

Lel2403 Oh that‘s all 4 of us now in group V...I‘m new to this too, so not sure what happens next lol 1y
Cathythoughts @Lel2403 Me neither😬. I‘m wondering if we need to check that none of us has read the book we choose ... I think we have till Nov 1st to decide (edited) 1y
Bookishthoughts I love doing postal groups. She'll wait till everyone is signed up and then email you guy's with the group's information. Then you all decide how you'd like to pick.💗😊 @Lel2403 1y

Lel2403 @LazyDays ah thank you 🦋💕 1y
Bookishthoughts @Lel2403 any time!☺ 1y
erzascarletbookgasm Sounds fun, I wish I can join you guys, sigh. 1y
jenniferw88 @Lel2403 @Cathythoughts @Moray_Reads for previous rounds I've seen littens post a choice of 4 books on here and the other group members have commented either that they've read it or if they have a strong preference for one of them. We then read and annotate our own book in November and then send on for December. 1y
Moray_Reads @jenniferw88 that sounds like a good plan 1y
Lel2403 @jenniferw88 I‘m looking forward to it...my first one ! 1y
SMayWrites This sounds fun! How do you join? 1y
Mdargusch It‘s so much fun! I did 3 rounds. Now we are doing a family round @Reviewsbylola @Meredith3 @AnnieD @emilyhaldi 1y
Cathythoughts @jenniferw88 yes, that sounds the perfect way to go about it. So we pick 4 each to start off 👍🏻👍🏻❤️❤️ 1y
Cathythoughts @SMayWrites if you look up #LMPBC @suvata you will see the link & then where there may be spots still left to join 😊 1y
Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm I wish you could too 😐 1y
SMayWrites @Cathythoughts Thanks! Will do! 1y
Cathythoughts @Mdargusch that sounds great 👍🏻❤️ 1y

I just downloaded Litsy on my ipad! Wow it‘s so much better than my phone! When I first got on Litsy I wasn‘t able to get the app on my ipad. So glad I checked to see if it was available.

Leniverse Ooh, I have to try that! When I first joined Litsy I had an iPhone, now I have Android. I really prefer the iPhone features for the app. 2y
ReadingSusan @Leniverse I just went through 7 hours of Litsy on my iPad! I could never do that on my phone. (edited) 2y
Leniverse Wow, yeah. I miss out on so many posts. Scrolling back two hours is my limit. 2y

rabbitprincess Yay! I use Litsy on my iPad as the default and it is so much more comfortable than using my phone 😊 2y
rwmg @ReadingSusan @Leniverse Where do you find the time to keep up with Litsy and actually read? 😁 2y
ReadingSusan @Leniverse yeah 45 minutes to an hour is about all I can do on my phone. 2y
Richryan52 Thanks for the like. I hope you‘ll try it and enjoy it 2y
ReadingSusan @rabbitprincess so much better. 2y
ReadingSusan @rwmg I don‘t really keep up. I normally check my feed once In the morning or once at night. Sometimes I will post a new post but won‘t have time to look at the feed. 2y
rwmg @ReadingSusan that makes me feel better. Even with the 100-odd people I follow I have problems reading the whole stream and I keep feeling, I'm a BAD Litten. 2y
ReadingSusan @rwmg I used to have time to read my whole feed when I joined but there weren‘t as many people on here plus I worked from home 😄 2y

For anyone who is already working in a Library, any tips?

robinb Congrats! 2y
LeahBergen Yes!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y

MrBook WOOHOO!!! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y
MrBook Tips, tips 🤔: #1 thing is people skills--libraries get all types--and handling difficult patrons; knowing how the call number system works--not knowing the numbers-subject combos, but how to put them in order; familiarize yourself with databases, like Overdrive and Zinio; and familiarize yourself with e-book basics, like how to fully make use of Kindles for example. Let's get some others' advice 😁: (edited) 2y
Librarybelle Thanks for the tag, @MrBook ! @TaylorMay I‘ve been thinking about this since you posted. What has been said by Mr Book is so true - people skills are big. I‘m impressed by someone who gives excellent customer service. Reader‘s advisory is good too, knowing what to recommend who like certain authors. Good luck!! 2y
LibrarianRyan Congrats. Be able to name 5 current best sellers in the following categories, fiction, non-fiction, teen, and kids. Be prepared to answer questions about upset patrons. How would u deal with a child who was left behind, or a parents complaint about something in the collection. 2y
NHLibrarian Agree with @MrBook people skills are everything! I‘m a director and I tell my staff I don‘t care if the building burns down, just be helpful and nice to people. Regular Library work is never done and nothing to panic about, but people will remember if staff are rude to them. 2nd: always be curious and willing to learn. What you don‘t know won‘t matter if you show you‘re willing to learn and try new things. Good luck! 2y
DivineDiana Fingers crossed! 👍🏻 2y
TaylorMay @MrBook @Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan @NHLibrarian thank you all so much for the advice. I posted more yesterday but my comment seems to have gotten lost in the #LitsyCrash2017. I am trying to prep myself a little more with your advice thank goodness I'm already an avid Overdrive user. 😊 2y
TaylorMay @robinb @LeahBergen @JSW @DivineDiana thank you for the well wishes 2y
