#LMPBC @suvata #GroupN

I just joined #LMPBC for the first time. Group N needs one more member. I think this will be similar to #whodunitbymail but more manageable since it only lasts four months.


umbrellagirl I‘m in! Glad to be on board. 4mo
nomadreader Excited to read with you and the rest of Group N! 4mo

@Litsy just announced a new feature — mute hashtags you don‘t want to see.

😂 to see #bookfitnesschallenge on the list in the photo! We haven‘t been around long, but already making an impact. 😂

Meaw_catlady Who would be tired of catoflitsy!!!?! So tragic! 5mo
guinsgirlreads @Meaw_catlady I thought that too!! Bad example lol! 5mo
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.

wanderinglynn @guinsgirlreads @Meaw_catlady I guess @Litsy / @TimSpalding can get a pass if he‘s allergic to cats. But seriously cats & books go together like ice cream & cake! 🐈📚 (edited) 5mo
mabell 😂😂 5mo
4thhouseontheleft @Litsy @TimSpalding Hey, you can be allergic to cats and still love them. ⬅️✋😂 5mo
TimSpalding @4thhouseontheleft I'm a dog person. I know this is unpopular. 😃 5mo
guinsgirlreads @4thhouseontheleft Truth! 💯 @TimSpalding dogs are great too! 😂 Some of us just can‘t participate in that #!! 5mo
JessClark78 Aww, poor cats. I love the cats of Litsy. 🐈🖤 5mo
Chrissyreadit @TimSpalding luckily we have #dogsoflitsy too. @Meaw_catlady @guinsgirlreads #catsoflitsy are some of my favorite posts 😺😸😹😻😼😽 5mo
CouronneDhiver Who would want to mute the cats? 🤨 5mo
Clwojick oh my god! hahahahahahahaha 5mo
kindergartenkat 😂😂😂 5mo
baes haha Their loss. 😂 They‘re going to miss out on a lot of great book reviews. 5mo
BarbaraJean Hahahaha!!! I cracked up seeing #bookfitnesschallenge on there as well! At least #BFC wasn‘t on there, too... 🤣 (edited) 5mo

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.)

julesG Tried that feature yesterday! Great idea! 5mo
TheSpineView You guys are the bomb! Thank you!💜💜💜💜 5mo

LiteraryinLititz Cool! Hey, is there a quick way on the website or the app to look up my own review of a book I read a long time ago? I know I can scroll to find it in my timeline or on the book‘s page, but it would be awesome to have a shortcut. 5mo
Leftcoastzen Nice! 5mo
Kimberlone Would love to have this feature available for the iOS app! 5mo
Kalalalatja Hey, that‘s my pic! I thought for a second I had made a double post 😅 great idea! 5mo
Litsy @LiteraryinLititz This would be a good feature, I agree. It's on the list of good potential features, but not currently in development. 5mo
Merethebookgal Very cool! I also like I‘m a suggested friend 😄 5mo

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!!! 👏 👍 😊 5mo
BarbaraBB You‘ve been working hard! Thank you so much! @TimSpalding 5mo
EadieB I love using my computer for Litsy! Especially since I was just using my iphone before. Now I can see the posts so much better! Thanks! @TimSpalding 5mo

@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.
4. Done.

TheSpineView That was easy and I never would have figured it out.😋 Thanks! 5mo

rretzler What happens with books that are already in Litsy? 6mo
Litsy @rretzler There's an option to replace them or not. Replacing would change the ratings, for example. Nothing affects posts. 6mo
rretzler Thanks! 6mo

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. 6mo
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) 6mo
dariazeoli @TimSpalding Perhaps the issue is the ratings. I gave this one a thumbs up on Litsy back in January. 6mo
dariazeoli @TimSpalding My GR was 3 stars, so it imported as a so-so with blank cover: 6mo
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. 5mo
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. 5mo
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 5mo
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. 5mo
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! 5mo
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? 5mo
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. 5mo

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! 6mo
DannyHattan Please go ahead 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 @TimSpalding 6mo
Butterfinger Wow. Thanks. 6mo

Clwojick i just did this, and now my TBR is over 3, 000 haahha 6mo
Jinster I actually can't find the export bit... I'm so useless 😂 6mo
DannyHattan So are apologies in order 😂😂😂 you won‘t need to read a review for a few years ..... 😂😱😱😱 6mo
DannyHattan @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. 6mo
Jinster @DannyHattan thanks I just had the idea that perhaps the mobile sit didn't work. Thank you 6mo
bibliophiliac Thanks for the tip! 6mo
Andrea4 That's so kind of you to share that tip. 6mo
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. 5mo
DannyHattan 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 5mo
LibrarianRyan @DannyHattan It;'s still at the “You have a large file, it may take a while“ stage. 5mo
DannyHattan @andrea4 @bibliophiliac 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 5mo

Litsy Tips
Vivlio_Gnosi Does @Litsy allow users to follow a hashtag or are we restricted to just searches? 5mo
Litsy @Vivlio_Gnosi At the moment, just searching. But, yes, that's something we're planning. Thanks! 5mo
