This has become my definite go-to to check on current Litsy fun! LitsyEvents is a page managed by a group of thoughtful Littens who want to be sure no one misses any of the awesome community activities available.
Follow @LitsyEvents and be sure to tag the account in any Litsy goings-on that need to be amplified. The account will signal boost challenges, buddyreads, readathons, swaps, and any other inclusive, Litsy community-building events.

Chrissyreadit Thank you for sharing! 7mo

Does anyone know if there‘s a master thread somewhere with some of the small businesses/Etsy shops of our fellow Littens? I know a lot of you are quite crafty. I thought it would be nice to be able to support our own Litsy community if possible as we get ready for the holiday season. So feel free to post links and promote if that applies to you in the comments.

Crazeedi I shared this post and great ideas! 9mo
Lynnsoprano What a great idea! It‘s been too easy to lose track of what‘s going on! 9mo
BethM I can only read the original post On the web version but I think this is excellent! I‘m with @Avanders about wkeeping the hyphen use uniform. 9mo
BookwormAHN Great idea 😺 9mo
bthegood @LizM @Chrissyreadit perhaps the official #LitsyHappenings could be opened up to allow posts from people hosting things, right now those posts go to other #litsyhappenings locations. This way anyone following official # would get notice, and it only requires hosts of events to post on official page. 9mo
Chrissyreadit @bthegood to be honest, I do not remember who ran it- so I don‘t know who can open it. I‘ve been using hashtags. I do know that it can be easy to burn out with that kind of a project, and partly believe it needs to be tied to library thing in someway as well @Liz_M do you think that would that be possible? 9mo
Liz_M @bthegood The hash tag can be used by anyone and any litten can search for the hash tag to see what is happening. But the LitsyHappenings account isn't an “official“ account; it was set up by a volunteer (@MrBook). Which is why I'm hoping that having several volunteers might make it more sustainable for the long run -- when one person's life gets busy, another volunteer can step in. 9mo
Liz_M @Chrissyreadit We can certainly ask. Maybe if we volunteer to manage it LT staff will agree to help with technical difficulties -- allowing access if volunteers drop off the site and no one has the password to the account(s) 9mo
Liz_M @Avanders good call! 9mo
bthegood @Liz_M got it, I didn't realize that was a volunteer🙂 9mo
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan I know I saw your name tagged but was curious about your thoughts also - 9mo

Guess what? I have a freakin‘ book out. It‘s with a small (very small) press, but it‘s a big deal to me—has taken forever to convince someone to publish one of my novels.

If you at all enjoy my writing on here, that would be awesome and so much appreciated if you could buy my book. And it‘d be even awesomer to give it a read and leave it stars on either Amazon or Goodreads.

Link here and link in my bio:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09FS59236#

Taylor Clearly it‘s not available for search on Litsy, or I would‘ve made this post with it. Also, either way, whether you buy the novel or not, thanks a ton. I love this app and the whole community on here so, yeah…not to get all mushy. (edited) 11mo
Taylor (I also wanted to add: actually I consider this a “social document” more than a novel; but for marketing purposes and to be tolerable to this guy publishing me…you know….) 11mo

Anchobi413 That‘s amazing, Congratulations! 🎉Would it ever come out as a kindle version? 11mo
Taylor @Anchobi413 Thank you! Sadly it won‘t come out on ebook because the guy who published it doesn‘t do that. I know it‘s kinda expensive but that‘d be awesome if you could buy it, but either way thank you for your interest! 💜 11mo
Anchobi413 No worries, I understand! I don't live in the US anymore and the country I'm at right now doesn't offer Amazon service (ah I'm still finding that hard to believe.. but the reason behind my obsession with kindle😅) It will definitely be on my to-buy list! 11mo
Taylor @Anchobi413 Cool! And one day I‘ll have a book out that‘s available on Kindle like, you know, almost every book is. 😂 11mo

So I signed up for #LitsyLove 😍

I'm super excited, but don't know where to start. The list is so long!

How did you all decide where to start?

Mitch Ahh - don‘t worry! I picked a few people that I knew from Litsy and then a few people I don‘t know at all - a mix of deepening existing connections and making new ones. You make of it whatever you‘d like! 2y

Today‘s #letskeeplitsyactive prompt by @ljuliel is what writer do you buy instantly?
These are a few of mine - also Kate Morton too -

ljuliel These posts should be giving people a really nice selection of authors to choose from ! Thanks for such a nice post. Which is your favorite of Nelson Demille ? I know he‘s written several, but I‘ve never tried one yet ! Did he write the book about Flight 800 that crashed or was that someone else ? 3y
Jerdencon @ljuliel Yes - that was him! My favorite of his is the Gold Coast! Took place very close to where I live and when I was reading it - one of the scenes was literally down the block from the camp I was working at. 3y
ljuliel Isn‘t that neat ? I think it always adds a bit more interest if you‘re familiar with the area where the book takes place. 3y
Jerdencon @ljuliel I agree! It‘s fun when you can actually picture the place! 3y

I noticed people asking about this feature on Litsy so I thought I would repost the info from @Litsy earlier this year.

From @Litsy :To mute tags, you have to do it on the Litsy website. What you do there will affect the app too. (We plan to include this in the app in the future, but app changes take longer to do.)

To mute tags, sign in and go to https://www.litsy.com/web/hashtags . The page is also found on Settings/Import, at the bottom.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks This doesn‘t work for me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3y
Bookzombie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That‘s so strange. I‘m sorry it doesn‘t work for you. 😕 3y
ljuliel Thanks for the info. I did as suggested, but are there supposed to be a list of muted ones below, like on your post picture ? None are showing in that area. I‘ve tried putting them in with and without this # 3y
See All 7 Comments
Bookzombie Yes, they should show up like in picture as you add them. I enter them with the symbol each time. Hmm, @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks said it doesn‘t work for her so I don‘t know if there are exceptions. If you use Facebook, you could message Litsy on Onward Litsy to have them look into it. 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Bookzombie I‘ve mentioned it, but it‘s not that big a deal... I‘ll just scroll on. No worries ☺️ 3y

Litsy Snort. Hey. I had to have SOMETHING!

Originally I had a joke about people who muted CatsofLitsy being monsters, but… 451 is a tough limit.

Also—sssh!—I don't actually like cats. Indeed, I'm allergic. This may or may not be @timspalding.

The new Litsy on the web ( https://www.litsy.com ) has a “night“ mode, so you can browse Litsy at night and rest your eyes.

So far, the app doesn't have it, but we're looking at adding it in a future release.

Night mode on the web is available on your Settings/Import page. (Go to your profile and then click the little “cog“ icon.)

We recently improved Litsy sharing, on both app and web. It looks better, and people get more than a single static page—they get Litsy.

So go ahead and share Litsy with your friends and followers.

Web sharing goes to Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Tumblr. And there's a special image-download for posting to Instagram. Mobile sharing does whatever your smartphone does, which is probably a lot.

guinsgirlreads Awesome!!! 👏 👍 😊 3y

@DannyHattan came up with this fantastic explainer for importing your Goodreads stacks into Litsy.

1. On your browser open Goodreads, in the “My Books” page and on the bottom left in tools there‘s a “Import/Export” tab, click it.
2. At the top hit “Export Library” it will download into your computers Download folder.
3. Go to https://www.litsy.com in your profile under “Setting/Import”, drag your file into the import section.

rretzler What happens with books that are already in Litsy? 3y
Litsy @rretzler There's an option to replace them or not. Replacing would change the ratings, for example. Nothing affects posts. 3y
rretzler Thanks! 3y

dariazeoli I imported my Read stack and it appears to have imported a bunch of books already in my Litsy stacks. These imported versions have ratings, but many have no covers. 3y
TimSpalding @dariazeoli No cover books get evaluated for covers every night. I'll take a look and see if that helps.

Can you give me an example of “already in your stacks“? At present, it's pretty exact. If you have the Hobbit in one edition, it will import the Hobbit in another. Perhaps it shouldn't. Give me an example and I'll look at it.
(edited) 3y
dariazeoli @TimSpalding Perhaps the issue is the ratings. I gave this one a thumbs up on Litsy back in January. 3y
dariazeoli @TimSpalding My GR was 3 stars, so it imported as a so-so with blank cover: 3y
rretzler Not to also be a downer - but a bunch of my books didn‘t import correctly. Some came through as being critique/analysis when I know the actual book was in Goodreads. Others duplicated - including my books listed as currently reading (A Pale View of Hills, The Redbreast and Melmoth). Melmoth came over as Melmoth Intl. Unfortunately, I started fixing before I thought to keep track of the errors. After awhile with some 2,000+ imported, I gave up. 3y
rretzler I‘m seriously thinking of reverting as it just seems a mess now and too many books to go through to see if they‘re correct. If I reverted and then reimported, also I could start a list of what didn‘t come over correctly and let you know - though I would probably revert again after that exercise. 3y
Litsy @rretzler Sorry for the trouble! If you want to give us the file, we can certainly take a look. A couple specific examples of problem records would be a big help. -Loranne 3y
rretzler @Litsy @lorannen - No problem at all! I'm wondering if trying to import that many books is just asking for problems anyway. I reverted to my saved data, and I'm going to reimport later today or tomorrow to see if I can make a list of some of the books that are causing the problems. I can then email you the CSV file and my list of the books that don't seem to be importing correctly. 3y
Litsy @rretzler Sounds like a plan! Fingers crossed it goes better this time, but at least we'll have some data to work with, if not. You can send details to litsy@librarything.com! 3y
Brooke_H When I drop in my file, I just get a down arrow pointing at a “clear upload“ button. No indication that it's doing anything.... I have a pretty huge library. If I leave it alone for a length of time, will it work? I guess I wish there was an hourglass or spinny wheel or something to indicate it's working on it? 3y
Litsy @Brooke_H I don't think you've left the screen where you load the file. You need to scroll down to “Upload File,“ and click it. 3y

Good effort @Litsy on the webpage, love that you can add your info from #goodreads ,here‘s how I done it:

1.On your browser open Goodreads, in the “My Books” page and on the bottom left in tools there‘s a “Import/Export” tab,click it.
2.At the top hit “Export Library”, it will download into your computers Download folder.
3.Head to https://www.litsy.com/ , in your profile under “Setting/Import”, drag your file into the import section.
4.Job done.

TimSpalding Hey, do you mind if I cut and paste this (with credit) to the @Litsy account? It's awesome! 3y

Clwojick i just did this, and now my TBR is over 3, 000 haahha 3y
Jinster I actually can't find the export bit... I'm so useless 😂 3y
Derf So are apologies in order 😂😂😂 you won‘t need to read a review for a few years ..... 😂😱😱😱 3y
Derf @Jinster you have to be on a computer for it to work and make sure your on your “my books” page on goodreads. Export should no on the bottom left. 3y
Jinster @DannyHattan thanks I just had the idea that perhaps the mobile sit didn't work. Thank you 3y
bibliophiliac Thanks for the tip! 3y
Andrea4 That's so kind of you to share that tip. 3y
LibrarianRyan Question Danny, does it import all your books (I have like 14,000) or just the shelf you were on . I only want to import my read books which is why I am asking. 3y
Derf As far as I‘m aware as long as you export just your “read” list, then in theory you should be able to do it. I selected all mine as I‘m relatively new to goodreads so I didn‘t have much. Let us know how you go! @LibrarianRyan 3y
LibrarianRyan @DannyHattan It;'s still at the “You have a large file, it may take a while“ stage. 3y
Derf @andrea4 @bibliophiliac 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 3y

Litsy Tips
Vivlio_Gnosi Does @Litsy allow users to follow a hashtag or are we restricted to just searches? 3y
Litsy @Vivlio_Gnosi At the moment, just searching. But, yes, that's something we're planning. Thanks! 3y
DieAReader I‘m trying to tag a new Litsy user & I can‘t seem to always gets her name to come up. Am I doing something wrong? There‘s a space in her name & as soon as I add it, I‘m no longer in the tagging screen. Help plz? 2y
Chrissyreadit @SquidgetsRoom there aren‘t spaces in litsytags. Sometimes it is hard- I‘m not sure why. If their real name is available you can type it- those do have spaces between first and last names. I‘m just another Litsy user- so cant answer why. If you are on Facebook and go to the Onward Litsy page you may get better information. 2y
DieAReader Ok thanks @Chrissyreadit I‘ll take a look for sure! 2y
