A small but enticing library haul today! Been anxiously awaiting the release of Cal Newport's latest.

jpmcwisemorgan Welcome to Litsy! 😉 14h
SenatorMothma @jpmcwisemorgan thanks, I'm slowly figuring it out! 😄 11h
Soubhiville Yay! You did it! I think a great way to find folks to follow is to search for books you love and follow others who picked that book. 10h

Soubhiville Also, @LitsyWelcomeWagon has helpful hints for getting to know the ap, and @Chelleo has made some videos that help as well. The more people you follow, the more you‘ll see on your feed. If you want to, you can use the little person outline with + beside it to get recommendations of folks to follow. Those suggestions should all be active users. 10h

My pick from the #LitsyATXReadersSociety #bookswap today. Thanks @Soubhiville ! This seems to be consistently popular, and I have a coworker who knows the author so I feel like I must read this!

Soubhiville Yay! I hope you enjoy it! 2d

Another great meeting of the #LitsyATXReadersSociety at the library today. So many good recommendations! These were the two that I read for this month‘s theme (feminism/women‘s history) - both picks imho. 😁

jpmcwisemorgan They are now both on my list after today! 2d

Mitch Perfect. ❤️ 2d
TheSpineView That's awesome! 2d
jpmcwisemorgan @Mitch @TheSpineView The Austin Central Library is still pretty new and it has a lot of great views inside and out. I never thought I‘d live somewhere with a place like it. 2d
jpmcwisemorgan @Soubhiville Thank you for tagging people in! 2d

Stopped in at one of my favorite local bookshops last week to grab a few books I had ordered (and ended up leaving with several extras... whoops!) #bookpeopleproblems

I love this new tag-a-bookstore feature! Thanks @Litsy and @TimSpalding 🙃

AmyG This is a wonderful bookstore. I visited there last fall and bought a signed Neil Gaiman book. 4d
Soubhiville Are you an Austin dweller? Any interest in #LitsyATXReadersSociety? We meet this Saturday for our second meeting, at Central Library. 4d
Soubhiville Oh shoot, never mind, I see this is a NY bookstore. I saw your hashtag and got confused, as our biggest independent bookstore is Book People 😊. Enjoy you bookhaul! 4d
readtheworld @Soubhiville No worries! Thanks for letting me know about Book People — I‘ll be in Austin later this summer and will definitely visit it! (edited) 4d
readtheworld @AmyG Oblong is the best! I worked there for a few summers during college, and the owners are lovely. 4d
