Excuse me! How rude! 🤨

I had no idea that this book is firmly set in #Cincinnati with references to the #HydePark neighborhood, #MtAdams and #ChristHospital in the first few pages. #ohio #cincylittens #ohiolittens

iamChandra Good Escape 😊😀😁 14mo
Karkar I can say with confidence that this is no longer true. Having just moved from Kansas to Cincinnati three years ago. Kansas is way behind Cincinnati. 😉 14mo

“And history has proven repeatedly that lunatics will rise to power again and again on tidal waves of aggressive nationalism and intolerance, even in places where it seems utterly incomprehensible.”
― Dan Brown, Origin #mostrelevantquotetoAmericanpolitics

RaimeyGallant Such a great quote. People wonder why I eye the Olympics suspiciously. 2y
RaimeyGallant And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 2y
Gina07 @RameyGallant-Thank you for the help links! So we are Littens? I like it! 😊 I have been using Goodreads faithfully since 2011 and have learned so much! Information about books, book clubs, book challenges, and have “met” some of the most wonderful people over the years. It‘s amazing how many people on Goodreads I truly call friends even though we have only spoken online. Litsy is definitely different & I need help getting started. (edited) 2y

Gina07 @RameyGallant One thing I have learned is that readers are the best kind of people. Always welcoming newbies and helping them learn the ropes.I will be going through both your help link and the videos. Are there any rules or general things I should know about following people? There are so many #hashtags...what kind of things do people tend to hashtag? Litsy seems more like Facebook or Instagram for books. Is that a good comparison? (edited) 2y
Gina07 @RameyGallant One more question...I am currently using the app, but the Goodreads app isn‘t as user friendly as the actual desktop site. Which do you recommend? The app or the website? Frankly, I don‘t even know if there is a website! Lol! 😂😂 (edited) 2y
Chelleo Welcome, we hope you‘re loving it here! Checkout these #Litsytips: http://bit.ly/litsytips and #LitsyHowTo videos: http://bit.ly/litsyvideos There‘s so many fun things to do: book exchanges, buddy reads, photo challenges and more! Check out @LitsyHappenings for details. Also, Litsy doesn‘t have a website version. 2y
Chelleo I just realized it‘s YOU, Gina! How‘d you come to find Litsy? Shame on me for not telling you about it myself! LOL! Welcome (edited) 2y
Gina07 @Chelleo I was really surprised to see you in the “how-to” videos! I just added the app last night and have been playing around trying to figure everything out. I‘m so used to Goodreads and this is VERY different. It‘s nice to have you, someone I actually know, to give me some tips. Thanks!! 2y
Gina07 @Chelleo My profile pic was just the 1st selfie I came too and my hair is flying in the air. I wasn‘t sure if I looked like myself. It‘s a pic from when we were in Hawaii last summer and I was in the convertible in Maui. Check the hair and lei. Lol. I found Litsy by the app. I just searched “reading apps” and it popped up. 2y
Chelleo How crazy is that?! We have a nice sized group of #cincylittens and have done both an #ohiomeetup and #cincinnatimeetup Some other locals are: @Jess7 @Pamwurtzler @KittyReads @Karkar @Leftik @LeshaMac 2y
Jess7 Welcome @Gina07 ! 2y
Gina07 @Chelleo I just went through and followed all of those people. Nice to have so many people in Cindy! 2y

Did someone say, “Ohio Meetup”? 😂🤣😂 #CincyLittens don‘t laugh at me, I warned y‘all this was coming! Please tag other Buckeyes. If you‘re in the Columbus area, I could use some local help with planning.

Kaye Thanks for the tag, @chelleo. I think @Mdargusch and @reviewsbylola are also Buckeyes ? And did you see a post a couple weeks back from someone in the Cleveland area ? I cant remember who it was. Can I email you with a possible idea ? I can‘t commit to anything at the moment, but could just straggle in at the last minute. 2y
Chelleo @Kaye Sure, email me at chelleo.michelle@gmail.com 2y

Friendly reminder that the inaugural #CincinnatiMeetup is THIS Sunday!! Seems like eons ago when we first hatched up the idea! Remember to bring a new or previously loved, wrapped book (feel free to add “clues/hints” to the wrapping if you want) for the Blind Date With A Book Exchange. We have a 3:30 reservation under “Litsy” in the Bronte Bistro. Be warned...I take photos! 📸 #cincylittens #cincinnati #litsyhappenings #cincinnatilitsymeetup

cobwebmoth I'm looking forward to it!☺ 2y
VanChocStrawberry I used to live in Norwood! I love Joseph Beth. I live in Indy now, but went to JoBeth last year for the Leigh Bardugo event! 2y
BeaG Do we bring 2 books, 1 new and 1 used? Do I need to call to RSVP? 2y

amvs1111 How fun! I wish Columbus were just a bit closer. 2y
Chelleo @amvs1111 I think we should do an Ohio meetup. If you or someone in Columbus is willing to host, I‘ll drive up! 2y
Chelleo @cobwebmoth I‘m excited too! Now here‘s hoping we have good weather and something crazy doesn‘t come up at the last minute. 2y
amvs1111 Good idea! I'm fairly new to being active on litsy, so I'm wondering how many Columbus folks are on. 2y
