5. Yep. I‘ve always mixed genres so it comes natural. I also use different platforms a lot, audiobooks are great for when you‘re hands are busy or you‘re in bed & ereaders are great for both night reading & if you‘re out & about(saves carrying a stack!)

Cinfhen Thanks for the tag, Liz! So happy to see you‘re back to reading. Hope you‘re feeling well. My summer reading was HORRIBLE.

Flying back Wednesday 2mo

I hate reading slumps too, I tend to get them coz I have so much to choose from I can‘t get started. I hope you‘ve enjoyed your summer, I wish I could get out and about more, I envy you being able to jet around everywhere. Enjoy NY for me, it‘s been on my top five places to visit for years. I‘ll live vicariously thru you💃🏻 2mo

Happy Monday!

Does anyone know if there's a way to display your Litsy feed on a website? Right now I have Instagram embedded, but I'd like to have Litsy instead.

#LitsyQuestions #questions

Litsy Afraid we don't have a way to embed a Litsy *feed* on external websites, but you can share individual posts anywhere on the web using the arrow icon that appears next to the “like,“ “comment,“ and “stack“ buttons on a post.

If you use Litsy on the web (https://www.litsy.com) you can also grab links to your profile, or a specific book, and share those as well. -Loranne

Borrowing from @MrBook to pose a question that‘s come to mind as we get ready to leave on vacation on Thursday: how do you manage your reading when you go away? How many books do you take? I‘m planning to take one physical book that‘s an #earlyreviewer book plus my overloaded Kindle. I have another hardcover in progress, but feel like that would be overload. What do you do?

BookaholicNatty I take a book bag full of books. I‘m not one to read on a kindle. I like to hold a physical book. I also take a few audiobooks with me too for traveling and walking when we are away. (edited) 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I should invest in ebooks for that very reason. But I usually bring an average of 5 books. Depends how long I'm away. For longer trips, I take cheap used copies that I can leave or trade. 4mo
Jerdencon Even though I like physical books I usually only take my kindle just for the sake of not going over the weight limit in my suitcase because I always overpack clothes! (edited) 4mo
See All 10 Comments
Crazeedi I took my kindle with lots of options, but I also too 4 physical books too!! 4mo
Soubhiville Traveling is for the Kindle! I also take a physical book if I am leaving the country, as a few years ago they wouldn‘t allow any electronics on the plane- all e-readers, laptops, and tablets had to be gatechecked- 😱. All I had was one magazine for a 16 hour flight. Somehow I survived, but it was close. 4mo
RaimeyGallant For my next trip, all ereader, though I'm pretty sure I'll be bringing back signed hard copies. 4mo
Lcsmcat I take my Kindle, but if I‘m driving, not flying, I also take a physical book. 4mo
Melissa_J I usually take one or both of my e-readers, and, depending what type of vacation it is (relaxing or action-packed), one or more physical books. 4mo
tournevis I answer on his post, but it's simple: Kindle, Kobo, phone. Little Free Libraries and bookstores along the way. 4mo
Oana7 I always take one book with me (a physical book) and I end up coming home with 3 or 5 😁😁 4mo

#BookWormBingo got me thinking about movie adaptations versus books. I almost couldn‘t think of one. A close call was The Princess Bride because the movie is fantastic and very close to the book (which is always key for me), but the book was every bit as good. I finally realized that The Polar Express as a movie was much more enjoyable than the picture book on which it was based. Are there movies that you enjoy more than the book? Share, please!

hjreviews For me, I actually enjoy the movie of the princess bride more. Maybe because I watched it as a kid growing up before realizing it was a book and reading it just this year. I enjoy the frame story aspect more, I don‘t miss all the levels to the dungeon of despair or all the backstories really 5mo
laurenslibrary I liked the Annihilation movie much more than the books. Everything made more sense to me after the movie. 5mo
AndiM I preferred the movie from the book The Help, thought the actors were excellent! Loved Stardust movie, enjoyed the book. The Book Thief was done well IMHO. 5mo
See All 32 Comments
Emilymdxn Brokeback mountain, the story is amazing and by one of my favourite writers so I‘m not disliking the original, but the movie was better 5mo
CarolynM I liked the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower but I loved the movie. 5mo
Freespirit I have just read Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy which was a great read but the movie is superb! 5mo
vivastory It's a tv series, not a movie, but Killing Eve definitely comes to mind. The book is rather mediocre. 5mo
TheAromaofBooks I go back and forth on Ready Player One - I feel like the movie had more of an upbeat vibe (which I liked), although there were a lot of fun details in the book that the movie lacked. Princess Bride is similar - the book is more of a downer, but also has a lot more backstory and intrigue. 5mo
rretzler @hjreviews I wonder if it depends on whether you read the book first or see the movie first. There are tons of movies and shows that I don‘t realize until much later than they were a book first, and for many of them, I still haven‘t read the book. 5mo
rretzler @laurenslibrary I‘ve read the book, but have not seen the movie. Sounds like i need to watch it. The book was okay, I liked it but it didn‘t really grab me. 5mo
rretzler @AndiM I have neither seen nor read The Help or Stardust though they‘re in my mind to read someday. I haven‘t seen The Book Thief yet. It was another where I enjoyed the book, but it also left me with a sort of vaguely dissatisfied feeling too. Hard to explain, as I would read it again. 5mo
rretzler @Emilymdxn Another that I would like to read/watch someday 5mo
rretzler @CarolynM That‘s one that I‘ve liked the book so much I‘ve been afraid to watch the movie. 🤣 Sounds like I‘ll have to watch one of these days 5mo
rretzler @Freespirit I‘m making my way through the Smiley series and that book is up next. I have seen the movie and I agree it was wonderful- watched it several times! 5mo
rretzler @vivastory Love the show! Can‘t wait for the 3rd season! Season 2 certainly took a twist. I‘ve not read the book yet, but you‘re not the first person to have that opinion. I think I may just pretend that there isn‘t a book! 5mo
rretzler @TheAromaofBooks I think I‘d have to say that I liked the RPO book better than the movie, but that‘s because i read it long before the movie. I‘m always a stickler for the movie following the book, and I guess RPO did for the most part, but it did leave out some fun stuff, as you said 5mo
rretzler One movie that I thought I would like but hated is the Peter Jackson adaptation of The Hobbit. Ugh! All the made up stuff for the movie. I expected better from Jackson after his LOTR adaptation. 5mo
Gezemice Casino Royale. The movie was soooooo much better. The book has an awful romance and full of mysoginy. They re-wrote those parts in the movie and it had a compelling female lead. Also - Shrek was a book once. Don‘t read it, its terrible. 5mo
Branwen Coraline! While I thought the book was okay, I felt the movie really blew it out of the water. It was much creepier! 5mo
hjreviews @rretzler I‘m sure it does. I also expect my childhood fondness plays a huge role. However, I always try my best to read the novel first as a way to respect how the author originally wanted their story/world portrayed 5mo
rretzler @Gezemice Good point about Ian Fleming. It‘s been a long while since I read any - probably the 1970s but they are certainly very dated these days. I enjoyed the books way back when, but if I recall they bear little relation to the movies, with the possible exception of perhaps the fist few Sean Connery movies. For the past several decades, the movies have been action packed and only the Bond character seems to have remained. 5mo
rretzler @Branwen I enjoyed both the book and the movie, but certainly the movie really helped to visualize that creepiness. 5mo
EclecticReaders This is a great discussion! We actually had a segment on movies we liked better than the books back on podcast episode 52 if you‘re interested (and The Princess Bride was definitely mentioned 😉) eclecticreaders.fireside.fm/52 5mo
rretzler @hjreviews I‘m the same - I do try to read the novel first, if I realize that it was a novel first. These days, though, I can‘t really seem to keep up. And if i really like a book, I usually end up very disappointed with the movie - with a few exceptions! 5mo
rretzler @EclecticReaders Thanks, I‘m certainly enjoying it and getting lots of good tips for movies to watch - and possible books to read (although at this point I have a TBR pile that will last me my lifetime!) I‘ll check out the podcast 5mo
EclecticReaders @rretzler haha, that‘s always the bookworm‘s dilemma 😂 enjoy! 5mo
rretzler I recently read Good Omens in preparation for the Amazon Prime show. We‘ve been savoring it by watching an episode a night - tonight is our last episode. We‘ve really enjoyed it. I think it helps that Gaiman was involved in the adaptation. I‘m missing a few items from the book bit not much 5mo
rretzler @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Interesting, I‘ve not read the book or seen the movie. 5mo
jimfields3 I don't know where I land on the book-vs-movie debate for The Princess Bride, but I do lean towards the movie. And right now I hear Peter Falk saying, "The Princess Bride. By S. Morgenstern. Chapter 1." ? 5mo
rretzler @jimfields3 Makes me want to rewatch the movie right now. Inconceivable! 🤣 5mo

Hey everyone,

Quick question! Just wondering what “movie based on a book” that everyone suggests? I currently have a week off, and the weather is not nearly as nice as I hoped, so I thought I‘d catch up with some reading and movies. I just realized I still haven‘t seen Everything, Everything and it made me wonder what else I‘ve missed or forgotten about. Send send me your suggestions!

Calling all littens:

I need your help. I‘m looking for books that deal with rape in a sensitive way as well as the consequences. If the books touches on pursuing legal action or healing, you get bonus points.

Thanks.

akckitty Some good ones. I can't remember which one's dealt with also going to court though. But all great reads that deals with it with sensitivity. 7mo
akckitty Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, I Have the Right To by Cheesy Prout, Wrecked by Maria Padian, Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu, The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith.. 7mo
akckitty What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler, All the Rage by Courtney Summers.. hope some of these help what you're looking for! 7mo

esurient Child victim of parental incest, follows through public disclosure, arrest, decision to accept a plea arrangement and why, post-trama therapy, and stable and contented adulthood. 7mo
esurient Memoir, college-age victim, a lot of detail in trying to make arrest, build court case, follow through court case, come to her own equilibrium. Writing is more 'articulated rage' than 'sensitive'. 1999 publication, describes 1981 event. 7mo
esurient I second @akckitty 's recommendation. Only court is public opinion, great narration from the teen's own point of view. There's also a film adaptation. 7mo
Beachesnbooks Powerful essay collection dealing with rape culture edited by Roxane Gay. Highly recommend 7mo
Scochrane26 Invisible girls (more about sexual abuse), the sound of silence (different real life stories from women & at least one man who has realized he date-raped a girl), lucky (author of lovely bones)). Laurie Halse Anderson has a new memoir about her experience & also wrote Speak. (edited) 7mo
BooksAndTea97 It's a YA book but I think it is really good. It deals with rape and also with other stuff such as mental health and sexual orientation.(It's told from three different teen perspectives) I think it is greatly underapreaciated and that there should be a bit more hype around it. 7mo

Sooo I have a random question that is #Litsy related. If I review a book as “bail” does it still count as having been read? I need to know before I post a review for the awful book I‘ll be finishing tonight lol. I am not technically “bailing” on it because I am finishing all 400 pages, but wouldn‘t want to give it more credit than it‘s due 🤷‍♀️🤣

AlaMich You can give it a “pan” if you finished it and thought it was bad. 7mo
tpixie Yes, I'd 'Pan" it. Bail typicaly means you didn't finish it. 7mo
TheLibrarian I‘d go with @AlaMich and do “pan” 7mo

sprainedbrain Bails still show up on your read list on Litsy... but I would pan it, too! 7mo
Weaponxgirl I‘m with the others and I‘d go with a pan. 7mo

See All 7 Comments
Lizpixie @Rissreads it was big in the 70s when it was safe to wander the streets! You need a few kids, break into two groups. First group leaves with a heap of chalk, every intersection you have to put a compass with arrows pointing to each possible way you went. 15mins later the 2nd group leaves & have to catch you before you make it home. With the 1st group able to lay false trails with bogus arrows etc you can make the chase as quick or as long as 8mo
Lizpixie as you like, we had quite a few suburbs to play in so our longest was a whole day! Loved that game so much. Definitely gave me a love of geography & a knowledge of our area to rival a taxi driver @Rissreads 8mo

Ummm so I know I'm a little late but I thought of a question 🙄

If all the books in the world were to disappear and you could choose one to keep and re-read for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?

Kaye #1 Nothing wrong with that. As you guys get older, your eyes get worse , so even with glasses , it‘s hard to see the print in books. Ever take a look at the Large Print selection in your library ? If you don‘t like Harlequins , Cozy mysteries , or James Patterson, you‘re out of luck. Get a Kindle and crank up the print size. Then you can read anything. 😁 9mo
Nessavamusic @kaye Yes! My eye site is getting worse but it‘s more just easier to hold and transport. I love having all my books all the time. 9mo
Kaye Yep. Handy. Toss it in your purse. Nothing to dust. Nothing heavy to carry. Works better at the gym than trying to hold a book open. 9mo

1. High brow pretentious literature is not my thing at all.
2. Both! Salted Caramel is my favourite flavour.
3. Betsy Rhoda Violet & Sydney, Iris & Lawrence. All gone before I was born except Betsy.
4. Labyrinth- David Bowie was a god.
5. New York or London. Or Edinburgh.

#FriYayIntro

Kaye Can you give an example of #1 ? 9mo
Lizpixie @kaye Ahhh, this is a tough call. Wars have started over less. What I find pretentious others would call amazing or enlightening. I think it‘s safer to keep my opinion to myself!🤫 9mo
Kaye Ok , that‘s okey dokey by me. I wouldn‘t start a war with anyone over a book. Some people like one, some hate it. Just like we all have favorite colors and foods...books are no different. I wouldn‘t get mad if someone hated CAKE .. I might think they have missing taste buds but I wouldn‘t be mad at them. 😁 9mo

EchoLogical @CuriousG She was amazing. I seriously want to cry every time I think about the fact that she's no longer around to share her stories with the world. 9mo
CuriousG @EchoLogical OMG - that is exactly how I feel about her and the loss of her brilliance and heart! 💙 I bought the book 'Conversations with Octavia Butler' and I love it so much. If you don't have it, you need it. It's a compilation of interviews wuth her/editorials about her. The closest to hearing her speak that can happen now 9mo
