Hi friends.

Are you interested in lively discussions of cool books?
Do you want to spend the summer discussing amazing books?

We are excited to announce #CampLitsy, a Camp ToB-style summer read along run by @squirrelbrain @Megabooks and @BarbaraBB 📚 ⛺️

Join us.
Everyone is welcome!

LitsyEvents We‘ve tallied the votes, and our summer reads are now set. We‘re excited to share the winners!

We‘ll read and discuss half of a book each week, starting in June. At the end of the month Camp decides which of the two books we read in that month heads to the end-of-summer finale. There, you‘ll cast a final vote to decide which book will be our #camplitsy summer champion!
Megabooks Thank you for sharing!! 3w

The gang is all here for #CampLitsy! I ended up splitting it between US and UK editions. Why not mix things up? 😁 Very excited to read these with everyone this summer!

Now…where are my s‘mores??? 🍫🏕

BarbaraBB They look amazing! You got the best of both worlds I think! I‘m still waiting for a few. Mostly UK I think but I know I chose Either/Or and Our Wives for their covers (similar to yours). Not sure if they are US or UK. My TTT edition will be a paperback not yet released 🤞🏽 1mo
batsy Fun spines & covers 😍 1mo
Megabooks @batsy thanks!! 😁💕 1mo

Megabooks @BarbaraBB thanks!! I definitely think our wives and you make a fool have better UK covers, but how high US cover is better imo. I like both either/or covers but the UK one was less expensive! 🤑👍🏻 1mo
squirrelbrain So pretty! I think you‘ve chosen well with your covers! 1mo
BarbaraBB Yes the US How High cover is way better! 1mo
Cathythoughts Gorgeous 🥰 1mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain thanks! I‘m excited for the content too 😉 but our campers chose some stunners! 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB agreed! 1mo

squirrelbrain @julesG - the Tournament of Books is an annual (American) knockout competition for books. Barbara runs a Litsy version alongside to see how our votes compare. It was my first year joining in this year - good fun! There is also a mini CampToB each summer, with just 6 books. We decided to nominate our own, which we did last weekend, as well as voting for them. When we‘ve picked the 6 we‘ll read 2 a month and vote our winner. 2mo
rockpools **Kind of a whispery shout** When you were putting the lists together last week there were SO MANY I fancied reading. I think I‘m in, and I think I understand. As long as you don‘t require us to sign up to the grown-up tob because 🤯 2mo
rockpools P.S. Nice spreadsheet 😘 2mo
julesG Okay. Got it. Thought it was more complicated. 😬 2mo
squirrelbrain I know @rockpools -there are so many good books! We had to take a few out even due to the dates not fitting; there were over 70! Could you tell my job was to do the spreadsheet?! 🤣 2mo
julesG Spreadsheet queen! 2mo
squirrelbrain No, just voting for books and then reading the 6 we choose over the course of 3 months @julesG (and chatting on here about them then voting for your overall fave) 2mo
Leniverse Wow. So many books to research! I've eyed the ToB in previous years, but it was just way too many books in addition to what I had already planned on reading. This mini version looks doable though. 2mo
KristiAhlers Y‘all have some great titles on this list! I‘m totally in for this! 2mo
TrishB I‘ll do my best to have a look and vote. You know how rubbish I am at reading along with others! 2mo
rockpools Next up in ‘things I didn‘t know I didn‘t know‘ - website Litsy shows who has stacked a book! The hours I‘ve spent going back through posts to see who I‘d meant to send stuff on to… (Thanks for adding the links to the spreadsheet, Helen!) 2mo
squirrelbrain Ooh, good spot Rachel! @rockpools 2mo
squirrelbrain It would be fab if you could vote @TrishB ! 2mo
squirrelbrain @Leniverse @KristiAhlers - there are so many fab books. I ended up only voting for 1 of my own 6 nominations, there are so many others I hadn‘t even heard of! 2mo
jlhammar Count me in! Just voted. Looking forward to it. 2mo
squirrelbrain Yay! Thanks for voting @jlhammar - there were so many great books to choose from! 2mo
vivastory Thanks for organizing! I'm really excited 📚📚🏕️ 2mo
BarbaraBB @julesG @rockpools @Leniverse @KristiAhlers @TrishB @jlhammar So glad you all are thinking of joining. It‘s really low key and relaxed. Just a chance to read 6 probably great books during summer! 2mo
Caroline2 Oh this sounds mega fun but I don‘t think I have any of those books and I‘m reallllly trying to stick to mount tbr this year. 😬 2mo
squirrelbrain You could still vote @Caroline2 and you never know, one or two might be on Kindle deal! 😁 (I know you won‘t resist a 99p deal, never mind what you say about #mountTBR!) 🤣 2mo
Megabooks Thanks for sharing Helen! Your spreadsheets are 💯💯💯💯!! 💜 and “probably great” @BarbaraBB 😂😂 but part of the fun is finding out for sure! 2mo
Emilymdxn I would love to join this sounds so perfect! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Emilymdxn Please do! Just read the two documents and choose the 6 books you‘d like us to read this summer ! We would love you to join! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks You never know of course, we‘ve had some weird ones in the real #CampToB 😉 2mo
squirrelbrain We‘d love you to join in @Emilymdxn ! 2mo
Daisey This is so tempting! I see a few books that have definitely caught my interest, but I also usually have very limited reading time in the summer. I‘ll keep watching and see what‘s picked. 2mo
squirrelbrain Why not vote anyway @Daisey ?! We‘d love to know your favourites! 2mo
Caroline2 Oh yeah! 😃 I do love a good kindle deal. 😊 voted! ✅ 2mo
squirrelbrain Thanks for joining in! @caroline2 😁 2mo
Leniverse So... I've narrowed my choices down to 17. 🤣 Where do I go from here? 😅 Do I remove the ones I'm going to read anyway, or do I vote for them because it would make it more likely that I get the ToB books read? 😬 2mo
squirrelbrain I got mine down to 13 before I chose my final 6. Then I picked one or two that I own but haven‘t read, and the rest were ones I *really* wanted to read. You definitely need to vote though @leniverse as it‘s so tight at the top, with around 10 books fighting it out at the moment! No clues as to which though! 😝 2mo
Leniverse I paired it down, somewhat randomly, by removing the ones I have and the once that aren't published until June, and then made sure they weren't all bleak doorstoppers. And then I judged by the cover. 😂 I've voted now, but I'd happily read half the books on the longlist. 2mo
squirrelbrain I saw that you voted Leni - thank you! 😁 CampToB is having a serious effect on all of our TBR lists! 2mo
Oryx Voted. Couple that I was going to read anyway, but lots that I haven't heard of, but sounded good. When will the list be decided? Might impact my shopping on Saturday... 😉 2mo
squirrelbrain Voting closes on Monday @oryx so we‘ll know the books by Saturday. Good idea for shopping…. We may be buying the same books! 😁 2mo
jhod Voted! 1mo
squirrelbrain Thanks @jhod - not long until we know the outcome now! 1mo
Leniverse I'm ridiculously excited to find out which books to add to my shopping list for Saturday. 😄 1mo
squirrelbrain Not long now @Leniverse - we‘ll announce tomorrow or Wednesday….. 😁 1mo
thereadingpal oh I'm late to the party - but alas I wasn't on Litsy back then xD can I still join? 4w
squirrelbrain Of course you can still join in @thereadingpal ! We‘ve chosen the books now and only started discussing the first part of How High We Go in the Dark yesterday so you‘re not that late. There‘s some great insights on our three threads; do a search for the book or for my name and you‘ll see them there. We‘ll add you to the tag list as well, so you‘ll get included in the posts each Saturday. @Megabooks @BarbaraBB 4w
Megabooks @thereadingpal welcome to litsy! I‘ve added you to our master tag list. I hope you enjoy camp! @squirrelbrain 3w

Addison_Reads What a great idea! Thank you guys for putting this together. 2mo
vivastory To be honest, the Litsy TOB is way more exciting than the real TOB. So many wonderful selections that I'm only voting for a few of my own nominees! Thank you campers! 2mo
Ruthiella Fantastic! Thank you @BarbaraBB, @squirrelbrain and @Megabooks for making it happen! 😃 (edited) 2mo
Ruthiella @vivastory Yup! My six choices will now also be influenced by all the intriguing titles proposed last week by others! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Ruthiella @vivastory I love that I will vote for books I hadn‘t heard of before last week! 2mo

erzascarletbookgasm How does this work?? 2mo
merelybookish This is so exciting! I figured there was no way the official TOB could live up to our picks. So I'm thrilled we get to do one of our own! Thank you for organizing! @Megabooks @squirrelbrain @BarbaraBB 2mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm Click on the 2nd link in Barbara's post. It gives a good breakdown of how the tournament works. I hope that helps! Would be great if you joined. 🙂 2mo
Cathythoughts I‘m very interested in joining in , and I‘m also wondering @erzascarletbookgasm how this works ? Well done you three littens 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 you are onto something very exciting here 💫 2mo
Megabooks @Cathythoughts the Google document linked above has a good description of how things will work. Basically, we‘re choosing six books to read together and discuss in June, July, and August (2 books per month) and we‘ll vote on a winner each month and then a grand winner from among the three monthly winners. 👍🏻👍🏻 @erzascarletbookgasm 😀 (edited) 2mo
Cathythoughts @Megabooks Thanks Meg , I‘ll get cracking and have a look at the list and pick my six. Well done you guys 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2mo
MicheleinPhilly I'm looking forward to this and am really, really, REALLY going to try to play. I will force myself to prioritize it if I have to, damn it! 😁 2mo
squirrelbrain @Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm Tournament of Books is a kind of knockout competition for books run every year. Barbara runs a Litsy version alongside to see if we vote the same. It was my first year joining in this year and it was fun! There is also a mini CampToB in the summer with just 6 books. This year we decided to nominate our own books for Camp then we‘ll read and vote for our winner. 2mo
BkClubCare Fyi - book that I suggested is not actually released until Aug 2nd…. (edited) 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @cinfhen what's this I read about a Camp Litsy t-shirt?? Because NEED 😻 2mo
Cathythoughts @squirrelbrain Thanks Helen 👍🏻♥️ I‘ve sent mine in 👍🏻 2mo
squirrelbrain Oops @BkClubCare - we thought we‘d taken out all of the books published late-June and onwards. I must have missed that one. We‘ll cross that bridge if it gets voted for! 2mo
Cinfhen I‘m just joking @Chelsea.Poole but I feel just like The Rooster we should have merch too😉 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @cinfhen I thought so...BUT how cool would that be! 😎 2mo
BkClubCare @squirrelbrain - sounds good. I made a note on my sug‘d six, also… 2mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Chelsea.Poole How cool that would be 😍! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Cathythoughts How great you are joining! @erzascarletbookgasm I hope you will too, if you still have questions, let us know! 2mo

BarbaraBB @Liz_M Check this out - instead of your co-workers 😉😂 2mo
vivastory @MicheleinPhilly Yes, please join what you can! I'm not planning on reading all 6 books on schedule but some of my favorites of this year were books that were in the most recent tob (edited) 2mo
BarbaraBB @vivastory @MicheleinPhilly I don‘t think I will read all of them either. I just love to have so many options! 2mo
MicheleinPhilly @BarbaraBB @vivastory I‘ve voted but I saved a copy of the spreadsheet because there are so many interesting sounding books! 2mo
LMJenkins Just voted! Excited for this. 2mo
vivastory @MicheleinPhilly @BarbaraBB That's a great idea! I'm going to do the same! 📚📚 2mo
BarbaraBB @LMJenkins Happy you‘re joining, thanks for voting! 2mo
Hooked_on_books I want to vote but I can‘t! The form is requiring me to sign in but I don‘t know my password and can‘t recover it because it wants to text a phone number I no longer have! Grrrrrr! Edit: I was able to fix it and vote! Thank goodness! 🥳 (edited) 2mo
Suet624 My brain isn‘t working - lyme and last month of job - so I‘d prefer that you all decide the books to read and I‘ll join in after they‘ve been selected. 2mo
Desha Voted! This sounds like so much fun! ♥️📚 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm Thanks Margot, Meg, Helen 👍👍👍 Sounds exciting! Will take a look. @merelybookish @Megabooks @squirrelbrain 2mo
Megabooks @Suet624 I‘m feeling you there unfortunately! I‘m having terrible long haul Covid brain fog today. Glad you have you on board, and I hope the brain fog clears! 💜 2mo
Megabooks @Desha fantastic! We‘ll have fun this summer for sure! 😀🏕 2mo
BarbaraBB @Hooked_on_books Thank goodness! A password shouldn‘t be necessary to fill out the form. Glad you fixed it! 2mo
Suet624 @Megabooks I‘m so sorry to hear about your brain fog. I didn‘t realize you were experiencing long haul Covid. That makes me sad. 💕 2mo
BarbaraBB @Suet624 I‘m sorry your Lyme is bothering you again. I noticed you‘ve been quiet lonely. Take care 🤍, we‘ll choose some nice books for you! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Desha Very happy you are joining us! 2mo
Suet624 @BarbaraBB thanks Barbara. The Lyme symptoms pop up randomly and I have to slow way down. Also an upcoming transition regarding work is impacting me more than I thought it would. I‘m feeling a bit wobbly about it. It‘ll all be fine eventually, I‘m sure. 2mo
Suet624 @BarbaraBB it‘s also 2:30 am and my sleep pattern is a mess. 😩 2mo
Megabooks @Suet624 I‘m so sorry you have Lyme. That‘s a very hard condition to have long term. I‘ve had a different chronic illness for 25 years, but the exhaustion has been way worse since Covid. The brain fog is new, and I‘m not enjoying it. And sleep issues are a real problem. I napped from 8-11 PM and now it‘s almost 2 and I‘m up!! Hope you can fall asleep soon. 💜💜 (edited) 2mo
Suet624 @Megabooks brain fog is no joke. Gosh, this stuff is tough. As far as sleeping, I seem to have a two hour window from 2 AM to 4 AM where I‘m awake. it‘s not bad if I don‘t have to go to work but on work days I have to be up at six. Anywho! I guess we‘ll just be sleepless sisters! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft Done! So excited to see the results! So many great nominations, it took me a while to browse the list and make my choices since I didn't want to just pick the 6 I recommended! 2mo
BarbaraBB @4thhouseontheleft I didn‘t just vote for mine either. So many good ones! Thanks for voting! 2mo
Desha @Megabooks @BarbaraBB thanks so much guys! 2mo
Teresereading So many great choices, I voted for some I know of, and also some unknowns with great/intriguing titles 2mo
cariashley SO excited!! Thanks so much for organizing!! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Teresereading I ended up too voting for books I hadn‘t heard of until then! 2mo
BarbaraBB @cariashley Glad you‘re in again! 2mo
Sparklemn @barbarabb I missed out on the voting but I'd love to participate in the group! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Sparklemn You are very welcome to participate! And you can even still vote. It is still Monday on the west coast of the US! 1mo
Megabooks @Sparklemn I have reopened the voting. There was some confusion among the organizers about when the poll would close, and I closed it early. If you‘re still awake, we‘ll leave it open until 1 AM on the west coast US, so about another two hours. I hope you will join us reading even if you aren‘t able to vote! Once again, I apologize for the confusion! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks sorry Meg, my fault! Emailed you! Xxx 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB thanks friend. Got it. I‘m glad straighten things out. Going to try to sleep for the 4th time!! 🙄 1mo
cariashley I missed voting too, am hectic with my first international work trip since covid started, but I trust the hive mind here and can‘t wait to see the results! 1mo

Ruthiella Fantastic! Now I‘m really hoping they will go with a full on NF list for camp. Your titles are all so intriguing. 2mo
Megabooks I have Ancestor checked out from the library but am having trouble getting into it. Great list though! Very different from everyone else‘s! 2mo
Cinfhen Some books I‘m totally not familiar with….need to investigate 🔬 I‘ve read an ARC for this one, which I did not enjoy - too long and the writing style just annoyed me 2mo
squirrelbrain Love the cover for The Midcoast! 2mo
BarbaraBB I love your choices. Such an eclectic mix! 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @Ruthiella I‘m with you! A full list of NF would be great! 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @Megabooks oh no, and I‘ve been so looking forward to it…hope it gets better for you 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @Cinfhen ugh I hate it when books are too long for no reason. I missed your review but I‘ll look for it. The cover really speaks to me for that one 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @squirrelbrain I agree — it was the only one in this bunch new to me that I stumbled upon while making selections, so I don‘t know much about it. 2mo
Chelsea.Poole @BarbaraBB thanks 😊 2mo
thebluestocking I love this list!! 💙💙 It looks like a great mix. 2mo

Day6 of #LitsySummerCamp and it‘s all about bbq! My favourite thing to do on the bbq(and no, it‘s not shrimp!🙄)is a marinated butterflied chicken. There‘s two marinades I love, ones a lemon herb with lots of zingy lemon & fresh herbs, the other a Moroccan with chilli coriander & preserved lemon. Sooo yum! Now I‘m hungry😂

It‘s been so crazy at Camp Kochi Kopi that I haven‘t had time to write home in days! But it‘s Friday so I‘m curling up the fire with a big old stack of books next to me, ready to read past my bedtime. #litsysummercamp @ImperfectCJ

Day 5 of #LitsySummerCamp was either a hiking book or a photo from a hike you took. This is the creek that runs through Acacia Flat camping ground in the Grose Valley, Blue Mountains of NSW. The only way in or out is walking up that cliff you see. Takes about 6hrs each way. I used to camp there a lot when I was young & fit, and unfortunately it got mostly burnt out in the 2019/20 bushfires. So now all I have are a few photos and my memories.

Freespirit A beautiful area! 11mo

Catching up on my daily activities for #LitsySummerCamp Day 4 was:
❓What would your favourite literary character do at camp?
*Patience Sparrow would be roaming the woods to find herbal remedies for all the sick & injured campers!

Nick and Charlie would probably be playing rugby, making out, and cuddling with the camp doggie!

Luna Lovegood would probably lead some art projects, specifically involving fashion and wearable art. And she would probably teach campers how to spot nargles, wrackspurts, and other imaginary creatures.


peanutnine I love both of these answers 😍 Also the idea of the three of them becoming friends at the same camp 11mo
Catsandbooks @peanutnine Thanks! They totally would!! 🥰 11mo

My current Arts&Crafts hobby is knitting, crochet & cross stitch. I love looking at something and thinking “I made this!” I‘m currently working on a chunky scarf & a baby blanket for my next grandbaby. I also enjoy jewelry making(beading, earrings, bracelets etc)and I love to try and paint & draw even though I‘m terrible at drawing. I‘ve also tried leatherwork. I watch a lot of makers on YouTube & I‘ll try anything once👩🏻‍🎨 #LitsySummerCamp

LeeRHarry How are you going up there Liz? Hope you‘re doing ok x 11mo
Lizpixie Hey @LeeRHarry How are you? I‘m ok, it‘s been hard with my mum‘s tiny funeral which was hugely upsetting for my whole family, now it‘s anxiety over being able to support my baby girl as she has her 1st baby.🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘m missing her 3rd trimester, being able to feel his kicks & reading to her tummy, not to mention the fact she has anxiety disorder & needs me and her dad to support her. But we live in a 5km LGA & she‘s in the next one over🙇🏻‍♀️ 11mo
Lizpixie Sorry for venting lovely, I try to stay strong but it‘s hard sometimes.😢 11mo
LeeRHarry @Lizpixie oh Liz I feel for you, the 5km lockdown is very hard. That‘s really rough that you can‘t see your daughter 😢 and funerals are so hard during these times, I couldn‘t go to the UK for my grandma‘s recently, watched online and as well as the funeral seeing my family that I haven‘t seen for two years was a killer 😢 here‘s hoping numbers start coming down quickly and things get a bit easier very soon - take care and stay safe x 11mo

Actual photo from last week‘s camping trip.
Weather here at Camp Wanderlust was a bit on the hot side with temperature of 88 but we did get some rain which just made it muggy. #litsysummercamp

Day2 of #LitsySummerCamp and the weather here in #CampLockdown in Sydney Australia is matching my mood, grey cold & rainy. So here‘s a picture of the beautiful sunset last weekend, much nicer than what it‘s actually like today. I honestly can‘t see this hard lockdown lifting anytime soon so I‘m getting anxiety about missing my baby girls pregnancy & the birth of my grandson🥺At least I have #audioknitting to occupy me🧶🎧

TrishB Covid 😢😢 so crap! Hang on in there, we‘re just pretending it‘s all over in the U.K. 11mo
ImperfectCJ That's so hard, @Lizpixie , the prospect of not being able to be there for the birth of your grandson. This pandemic just isn't letting go. 11mo
Lizpixie @TrishB I‘m trying hard but with every press conference the prospect of ending the lockdown gets further & further away🤦🏻‍♀️ @ImperfectCJ I can handle being stuck in the house for two months, god knows that‘s what my life‘s like anyway, but it‘s not seeing my family that‘s getting to me, I‘ve usually got one or two of my kids over every day. I‘ll prob get arrested trying to sneak into the maternity unit! 11mo
CarolynM I'm so sorry Liz. Being separated from family is the worst of it. Hope the numbers turn around soon. 11mo

Teresereading I was lucky enough to be at Kyle Perry‘s launch recently 11mo
Lizpixie @Teresereading oh so jealous! I have that one on order from Booktopia.com.au 11mo
ChasingOm That books sounds great — but maybe after I get home from camping next weekend. 😅 11mo
ImperfectCJ The Bluffs looks great! Adding to my TBR (to read AFTER my teen gets home from camp). Glad to have you at camp! 11mo
