Saturday afternoon
Browsing Litsy when I could read
Waste of time? Hardly

Not creepy, but current mood.

So, for some reason I thought today was my Litsyversary, but I found my welcome email and discovered that I was wrong. Anyway, it's been a fun 3 years of geeking out about books with you super cool people. Thanks for letting me have a place to do that!❤

So excited for the #LitsyLove Swap!! Helping out @SamanthaMarie by filling this one out!

1) Yes 😊 I even added a bunch of titles yesterday.
2) Bookmarks, my book sleeve (so books don't get bent in my bag), a book light
3) Love candles! Fancy pens in fun colors, bath bombs, stickers for #LitsyLove mail!
4) I love so many candies. Just no nuts or coffee flavors. Milk chocolate is preferred, & love it w/ caramel or coconut. All fruity gummy candy!

SamanthaMarie Yay!!! So fun. I definitely saw that you do NOT like nuts or coffee hahaha!! Easy to stay away from those. :) looking forward to our swap! 1mo
Kaylamburson So excited for it!! This will be so fun!! 1mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Hi Kayla! How are you? Not sure if you received my mail? Might have gotten lost😭 gahhhhh looks like our mails aren't fated to reach each other! 😢😭 3w

Kaylamburson Ohhhh, no!!! How long ago did you send it? I'll double check the mail area tomorrow when I'm back home. Is it a letter or package? So sweet of you to send me something 💜💜 @Jee_HookedOnBookz 3w
Jee_HookedOnBookz A letter and it was very looooong ago can't recall 2/3 months? I didn't wanna ask you about it coz I didn't wanna sound like I wanna rush you for a reply but not hearing from you didn't feel right so I decided to check. Looks like I'm right😭 3w
Kaylamburson Ahhh, sorry! I definitely got that letter and your nice stickers and such! Thank you!! I am pretty sure we had mailed our stuff at the same time and they crossed paths in the mail, and then I had assumed my package would arrive. And then it never did, and well here we are, haha. I do promise to respond! @Jee_HookedOnBookz 3w

I'm very excited for the #LitsyLoveWinterSwap

1.) Yes it is!
2.) Bookmarks ♡ Book logs ♡ Stationary ♡ Everything ha! ♡
3.) Candles, socks, book bags, book related paraphernalia
4.) CHOCOLATE. I am sadly allergic to dairy and soy so it has to be dairy/soy free. But I looooove chocolate!

I'm easy going!!!

@Kaylamburson I'd love to know your answers though I already thoroughly stalked your Litsy and I'm pretty sure I know what I'm getting you 🤣

Kaylamburson Ohhh I didn't realize we had each other, ha! I've stalked you, too lol. But this is extremely helpful! I'll fill this out and post 😊😊😊 1mo
SamanthaMarie @Kaylamburson Hahahaha yes!! Misty made it easier on herself since #LitsyLove is so big :) I'm excited. (Also, I saw way back when that you met Peter Hermann!!!!) 1mo
Kaylamburson Hahaha some serious stalking. And I did!! He was so friendly and crazy TALL. And I definitely don't blame her! 1mo

I just started using Litsy's website and not just the app and I'm loving it! I feel it's much easier to interact with what people post.

Joined today after the joint Litsy/LibraryThing meetup yesterday evening. Thanks, Tim, for getting me into the Exhibits to get all these great books!

#ALA #FreeBooks

BookFreakOut Hello again! I also picked up Luminous Dead and Terra-Two! Managed to get everything packed up under the airline weight limit. 4mo
drneutron @BookFreakOut Luminous Dead will probably be the first one I read, but unfortunately, I picked up 6 library books before I left (and have a seventh waiting for me). So I have to figure out how to interleave the two batches. 😁 4mo
charl08 Still super impressed by this haul. One day I will get to an ALA meeting! 4mo

SqueakyChu Welcome to Litsy! Great book haul! I‘m sure you‘ll get them all read...eventually! I hope you enjoy Litsy. I find it fun to post brief messages here about books as I read them. (edited) 3mo
drneutron Thanks! I‘ve been posting as I finish, but will probably add those in process too. 3mo
SqueakyChu @drneutron So how have you been enjoying Litsy? I love to stop right in the middle of a book just to jot down my thoughts here. 3mo
drneutron So far, I‘ve enjoyed seeing the range of what folks are reading! 3mo
humouress I'm still working out how to use Litsy, but I'm finding it useful to put down thoughts/ quotes as I read. Then I can use them to write a review on LibraryThing (and then bring the review back here and work out how to condense it right down). (edited) 2mo

Help! I was trying to clean my TBR here on Litsy to take out books that I already own, and I didn‘t see a way on the app nor the website to just remove books, so I just changed them to read (which makes me anxious because I haven‘t actually read some of them!). Does anyone know if there‘s a way to remove books that we‘ve tagged as Reading, Want to Read, or Have Read???

RachelO If it‘s showing as ‘to read‘, just click the ‘to read‘ button again and it‘ll toggle off. 4mo
Rachel.Rencher @RachelO I didn't know that! Thanks for sharing. 😁 4mo
JamieArc @RachelO Oh my gosh. Of course it‘s something as simple as that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ @Rachel.Rencher I‘m glad I‘m not the only one who didn‘t know! 4mo
RachelO @JamieArc @Rachel.Rencher Oh good! I wasn‘t too sure that sentence made sense. It took me ages to work it out too! 4mo

We want the next version of the app to have a feature to see posts about your books, following books, etc.

For now, however, we did the next best thing. For now, we did the next best thing: @PostsAboutYourBooks, a special account for posts from books you‘ve stacked or posted about from across the Litsy community.

You can look at it at any time, or you can follow it, to have the posts mixed into your regular feed.

LeahBergen I just had a peek. Very cool! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4mo
Litsy Note: The feed doesn't include all books. We have a system that marks certain books as “probably not real,“ and those are excluded. So if you've posted about “Untitled“ or “Fitness Tracker“ you won't get all those posts mixed in. 4mo
marleed That‘s so cool. I love to go back to the newsfeeds of books I‘ve read to see what new readers to that book have said. 4mo

gilroyc I have had to unfollow the posts about books account. It seems to override the tag filter I have in place, which makes the filter seem broken. 3mo
Litsy @gilroyc If by “tag filter“ you mean tags you've muted, I want to make sure you're using Litsy on the web—tag muting only works on the web version for now (it should be coming to the app in a future release). Assuming that you're using the web and still seeing posts with muted tags get through, could you give us an example? Feel free to email at litsy@librarything.com if you'd rather not hash it out here. 3mo

Are any Litsy members going to the American Library Association meeting in Washington, DC—or just live in the DC area? We're looking to plan a meetup!

The meetup will probably be a joint Litsy/LibraryThing thing, at a bookstore cafe in the area, like Kramerbooks, or Politics and Prose are all on the table.

Post here, or on LibraryThing at http://www.librarything.com/topic/307549 .

We'll also have free day passes to give out soon.

My pick for the @Litsy #downphoto - a classic #Chloe shot. No idea about a caption - but I‘m cracking up looking at this again. 😆😆

kgriffith Not down, just a brief delay. All posts/likes/comments will show up now that the queue is caught up. 4mo
Sarah83 @kgriffith not today. I meant the photo challenge 😁 4mo
kgriffith @Sarah83 HA! Timing for that was great though 😋 Good luck! 4mo
Sarah83 @kgriffith I thought quite the same, when I saw, the post wasn't uploaded. 😁 4mo

#downphoto

What do you mean, Litsy‘s down? 😆

mcipher Your kitty looks so much like my #Chloe !! ❤️ 4mo
shortsarahrose @mcipher Aww! I bet Chloe is a beauty! This is my sister‘s cat #Jenga. I can‘t have a cat at my apartment so I try to soak up all the kitty love and silliness when I visit her. 4mo
peaknit I see the bag and think, are you from WI?? I worked at Woodmans in college. Hi kitty!! 4mo
shortsarahrose @peaknit I‘m originally from WI (now in IA), but my sister still lives in Madison. 4mo

tournevis I see you.

FYI, my issue with the web interface is that I can post if I don't try to post an image, just like at the very beginning a few weeks ago.

TimSpalding Thanks. We just discovered this. We're diving in. 4mo

#downphoto
Took this in my backyard during a rare kid break.
It reminds me of the joys of escaping screens for a bit. Sometimes a forced break from favorite apps can be a good thing! #alwayslookonthebrightside 📖☀️

mhillis This is so nice!! ☀️ 4mo
Crazeedi Perfect! 4mo
Crazeedi Did you put this of Facebook for a suggestion?? 4mo

We need your help with a Litsy “down“ image—a photo to show when Litsy is temporarily offline.

Rather than some stock photo (like above), we figured we'd ask the community for help. Just take a photo and tag it #downphoto. On June 18 we'll pick our favorite to use. We'll give out three Litsy mugs—one for the favorite and two randomly to anyone who gave it a shot.

Got an idea for a good photo? Leave it below.

Litsy Caveats! We don't absolutely promise we'll use the photo. And we may choose more than one favorite. Either way, we'll send out a mug for each favorite, and at least two more to random Littens who gave it a serious try! 4mo
LeahBergen Well! I‘m going to have to give this some thought! 🤔 4mo

Liz, I forgot to say how sweet you are with your thank you card. That is a skill in thoughtfulness I stink at. It arrived before the weekend but I put it down and became distracted!

#Changes @Megabooks

📘 The biggest change is my TBR pile is no longer a pile but a mountain... several mountains actually. It is over 1K and I am afraid to do a count.
📘 Litsy has become my favorite social media. All the others pale in comparison. I spend lots of time here and not so much on others.

Megabooks Definitely the best social media! I always feel better after I‘ve been on Litsy, and I can‘t say that about any other. 👍🏻 Thanks for answering. 😁 5mo

This is a reminder that Litsy has a Facebook group, “Onward Litsy!“ where staff and members get together to talk about the future of Litsy, discuss potential features, review new features, take polls, etc.

It's open to all Littens, with over 1,000 members already!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnwardLitsy/

Litsy We know not everyone is on Facebook. But Litsy doesn't have the ability to conduct detailed, threaded, group discussions, and we didn't want to force everyone on LibraryThing, which does. Facebook was our best option.

Needless to say, we're always glad to get feedback and have what discussions we can on posts like this. - Tim

baes I wish the group was Closed (this would still be searchable). 😕 I don‘t like all my activity showing up to my FB friends in their feeds. 5mo
baes My only major recommendation for Litsy is to be able to save posts and maybe be able to turn on notifications for new comments. I can never find posts I want to check-in on later. I do like the idea of a status bar for reading progress too. 5mo

RebL I refuse to go on Facebook, but I‘ll look for threads on LibraryThing. 5mo
Litsy @RebL Sorry. I understand. I wish I had a better way. Perhaps when LibraryThing gets fully mobilized, it will be an answer. 5mo
umbrellagirl @baes I agree wrt the group being closed. I don‘t like having all comments public for anyone to see. @Litsy 5mo
Litsy @umbrellagirl @baes Thanks for the notes. I've changed it. I think the public nature helped early on, when it wasn't clear what it was. Now that more than a thousand members are on it, we can take it closed. Thanks! 5mo
umbrellagirl @Litsy Thank you! 5mo
mreads I second the saved feature mentioned, also would be nice to be able to have an owned list or notation for swap purposes 5mo
baes Awesome, thanks! I requested to join. 😊 5mo
SkeletonKey Yay! 5mo
lkpreader Good to know 😀 5mo
Megabooks Does Litsy have an algorithmic feed now or is it still chronological? I feel I am missing things. 5mo
Litsy @Megabooks Litsy's feed is still chronological, and we don't have any plans to change that in the future. If you think you're missing posts in your feed, please point us to some specific posts or accounts! You can also reach us at litsy@librarything.com if that's easier. 4mo
