I‘m not gonna be around during the downtime because there‘s nothing to do while migration happens, but I‘ll be around here and across the various platforms and presences once we come back. Get some sleep, Littens, you aren‘t gonna miss out on anything, I promise! In the meantime, we have the downtime lounge: http://www.librarything.com/topic/289278 and also check out my homemade angel hair pasta, seared scallops, and lemon pepper glaze. #litsyonlt

Reminder that scheduled downtime will start at 3am: we anticipate about 8 hours of downtime while we switch out the man behind the curtain 😏 Hopefully many of you will sleep through most of it, but for those in anxious anticipation, come hang out in the Downtime Lounge, a LibraryThing Talk thread where folks can mingle and chat while we wait! http://www.librarything.com/topic/289278 #LitsyonLT #litsynews #litsyhappenings

leahbird LT is down now. I saw all the messages about Litsy going down tonight but didn't see anything about scheduled downtime for LT. Was this posted and I just missed it? 14mo
kgriffith @leahbird Nope, devs are on it though, 14mo
leahbird Oh cool! It said it would be back up at 9pm tonight so I thought it was scheduled work leading up to tonight. Hate crashes but I'm not worried, you guys always take good care of us. 😘 14mo

kgriffith @leahbird That may have been the text from the last scheduled downtime, that‘d be my guess at least :) Thanks for the kind words, we do our best! 💜 14mo
kgriffith @leahbird we‘re back! 14mo
batsy Best wishes that it all goes smoothly 🤞🏽 14mo
kgriffith @batsy Thanks! 14mo
ghosthost Best of luck! I hope everything goes smoothly tomorrow. 14mo

Reminder that scheduled downtime will start at 3am while we move Litsy to the LibraryThing servers. We anticipate about 8 hours of downtime. Hopefully many of you will sleep through most of it, but for those in anxious anticipation, come hang out in the Downtime Lounge, a LibraryThing Talk thread started so folks can mingle and chat while we wait! http://www.librarything.com/topic/289278 #LitsyonLT #litsynews #litsyhappenings

CocoReads Well I‘ll be at work most of the morning and then we moved our usual card playing/dinner with the folks to Tuesday this week and starting at lunch instead of later. So I guess my Tuesday plans are set! Hoping the move goes smoothly. 14mo

Am I the only one who had never heard of LibraryThing before this week? It's surpising, bc I am a big reader and have a pretty big social media presence. Should I sign up? Can I use my Litsy info to sign in? #litsyonlt

Kaye I‘ve heard of it and joined a couple times long in the past. Not impressed with the website. I think GR is much more user friendly if you want to catalog your books , be in a reading group, etc. It‘s everyone‘s own choice though. Good luck with whatever decision you make. 14mo
sprainedbrain I had heard of it but never used it. I just created a new account a couple of days ago. I used the same email and username that I have on Litsy, and I was able to import my 3000+ books from Goodreads for free, and it appears I have a ‘lifetime‘ membership without paying for it? I‘m not sure how that happened. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Still finding my way around LT! (edited) 14mo
Aseleener @sprainedbrain I read a thread here on Litsy that if you sign up via mobile app, you automatically get the unlimited version for free. So I did it that way, even though I had my laptop on my lap. Then after I registered, I used the laptop to import from Goodreads. My account info says lifetime membership also. 14mo
sprainedbrain @Aseleener well that explains it! Thanks. 😃 14mo
SqueakyChu Welcome to LibraryThing, everyone! 14mo

So, neat addition to the LibraryThing tools, an Alexa skill. I've started using this for adding books to my collection. It's so much easier to yell out an ISBN across the room than to actually walk over to my computer, LOL.

#LitsyonLT

GarthRanzz Almost worth joining LT for. Almost but not quite. 14mo
Texreader Love LT! Almost worth getting an Alexa for! 😁 14mo
GondorGirl You can also use the phone app to scan the bar code on the back of your books. It's what I use when I'm traveling. 14mo
Chelleo I wish my Google Home had this feature!! 14mo

#LitsyonLT

So, I actually started on Librarything and have been there a few years.. why is my library so small?? A. Due to unforseen circumstances, I've lost my library a few times 😭😭😭, which is why I usually almost always buy kindle books now, I'm scared of losing my books again.. and I have little money. But anyway everyone else was adding there's so I thought I'd add mine as well. I'm glad for the merger as I found Litsy, which I love!!

lyradora LibraryThing is good for cataloging actual library books, too. 😊 You can track the books you've checked out. 14mo

So joined LibraryThing since why not. Has some features I really like but only one problem.... I've been using goodreads for about 7 years now. It's gonna take a long time to copy over my library 😔 oh well! #ChallengeAccepted #LitsyOnLT

Reviewsbylola I‘ve been a LT member for a long time but I am not active. I wish there was a way to just upload your GR library. 14mo
ContraryMary @Reviewsbylola there is! You can import your whole good reads library! I did it last night! Go to the help section on LT and type in “import goodreads” and they give clear instructions! 14mo
Reviewsbylola Wow, that‘s awesome!! Thank you @ContraryMary 14mo
WeeWeegieBookworm @ContraryMary 😱😱 you are amazing! Thank you so much 😁 14mo

Joshua: Whatcha reading?
Me: A Little Life. It‘s a very long book that I‘ve been reading for a very long time.
J: How long?
Me: 700 pages.
J: is that longer than, like, any of the Harry Potter books?
Me: I dunno, I‘m pretty sure one was over 800...
J: Order of the Phoenix, was that the longest?
Me: Gee, if only there was a website that could tell you these things... *looks up OotP on #LibraryThing *
J: Ha, ha, ha, well played.

RaimeyGallant Haha. :) 14mo
RaimeyGallant I have three friends on LT. Will you be my friend on there? I'd like to make it to five. ;) I'm there using the same name. 14mo
kgriffith @RaimeyGallant I‘d be delighted 😊 Request sent! 14mo

RaimeyGallant Cool. Thanks! 14mo
Soubhiville @kgriffith @RaimeyGallant I‘d love to be friends with both of you there... can one of you tell me how to send friend requests? 14mo
kgriffith @Soubhiville When you‘re looking at someone‘s profile, the top module on the right has all of the connection links 😊 http://www.librarything.com/profile/kgriffith 14mo
Soubhiville Ah, thanks! I‘m going to try it after class! 14mo
Jinjer I‘m trying but haven‘t successfully added a friend yet🤔 14mo
RaimeyGallant @Soubhiville I still have to try too. Add me! :) 14mo

Trying to deal with it #litsyonLT... 😕

saresmoore It‘s a lot at once, isn‘t it? I think everything will be a-okay, even if we don‘t become Library Thing converts. 14mo
TheLibrarian I just opened my LibraryThing account and not sure how I feel about it. 14mo
sprainedbrain I just started mine today... I can‘t even get my picture on there the right side up so maybe I‘m not cut out for LT. 🤪 14mo

Sarah83 @sprainedbrain Well it is not that bad, but it is difficult to find. Nevertheless if I can deal with it, you can manage it aswell. 🤗 14mo
Sarah83 @saresmoore yes indeed. Sometimes I still wonder, how complicated social media internet access can be. 🤔 14mo
Sarah83 @TheLibrarian I still feel a bit weird about it. 14mo

The number one reason I switched to LT is data. On the home page there's a link to Stats/Memes. On the stats/memes page there's a link to physical properties. I love those stats. I also like the Authors link on the home page which leads to a visual representation of all the authors I've read. #LitsyonLT

dariazeoli I was really pleased to find that stats page yesterday! Interesting stuff... 14mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @dariazeoli such fun stats! And I like the Authors tab on the home page as well. 14mo
Smangela I had never heard of LibraryThing before the Litsy acquisition - I‘m intrigued but I honestly do enjoy GR... is it worth it to do another cataloging account? And is the a book shelf maximum? 14mo
See All 9 Comments
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Smangela I'm going to be honest, GR is way too buggy for me and after a few years of it I was done. So I do LT exclusively. I'm not a super organizer but you can do collections and tags and I don't think there are limits. 14mo
lorannen @Smangela LT staff member here! Technically, there is a 200-item limit for free accounts, but if you sign in to your existing account or register via our mobile app (for iOS or Android), you get automatically upgraded to a free lifetime membership with no limits. 14mo
Smangela @lorannen whoa! That‘s cool!! I‘ll be sure to check it out during my son‘s nap time today haha 14mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @lorannen sorry I misspoke. I'm a lifetime member and I assumed....😁 14mo
lorannen @RestlessFickleBookHoarder No worries! We do tend to give lifetime memberships away a lot. Just wanted to make sure @Smangela wasn't disappointed on registering. 14mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @lorannen whew! I think I paid for mine for the purpose of unlimited but then forgot. Money VERY well-spent. 14mo
