Cindy, what great choices! Thank you so much! I totally have almost bought the tagged book no less than 5 different times, but it has just never quite made it home with me. I will probably be reading both books quite soon 🥰 #oldmeetsnewgiveaway @Cinfhen

Cinfhen The Preston book is awesome!!! I loved it - I took a chance on the Allende... thanks for playing #oldmeetsnew 7mo

Cinfhen See above comment @CoffeeAndABook 👆🏽😂😂❤️ 8mo
CoffeeAndABook Wow really!!! 😂 I‘d say those five have *great*odds of winning that giveaway 🤪 I still think it‘s a fab idea!!! 8mo
TrishB That‘s a bit sad isn‘t it- 5. I‘ve had a lot of new followers but not much interaction. It‘s hard because you want to welcome people but then they don‘t post or join in 🤷‍♀️ 8mo
Cinfhen I tried but it‘s pretty telling sign... I‘m so happy I joined early and got to really bond with my #OGsOfLitsy @TrishB @CoffeeAndABook ♥️ 8mo
TrishB Me too ❤️ it‘s so worth the effort though. 8mo
CoffeeAndABook Yes to the #OGsOfLitsy !! 💞💞💞😘 8mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes, I was a suggested user up until a few months ago. (That‘s why I have 18k followers.) It‘s kind of frustrating because you get a lot of new followers, but a lot of them never post. It‘s hard to separate the posters/interested new users from the casual account makers. Glad to be an #OGofLitsy! Joined 3 years and 3 months ago! Love Litsy/Littens!!! 📚💜💙💜💙💜📚 👇🏻 8mo
Megabooks Out of Print asked me if I wanted to be a suggested user in the summer of 2016, and I thought, “Great, I‘ll get to meet a lot more people.” But after awhile, it was really wearing on me, especially when I was depressed. I wish I had grown my new followers more organically. #FoodforThought 8mo
Cinfhen 18k is ridiculous @Megabooks That‘s wayyyyy too many to weed through even if only a quarter post!!!!! 8mo
Freespirit I started following you last year (2018 when I joined) but want to thank you for your kindness and generosity. That's what makes Litsy so special @Cinfhen 😊 8mo
ShyBookOwl 5? Hmm. Well, I haven't entered giveaways because I don't read many physical books. With my chronic pain issue, I can only manage a physical book of about 250 pages. But it's nice to see them pop up 😊 8mo
BarbaraBB It is really saddening that only five people or maybe a bit more saw your post (they would have entered otherwise, obviously). I have stopped looking who my new followers are, I wait for interaction. Most of them just signed up and never post. 8mo
Cinfhen Awwwwww, thanks so much @Freespirit @ShyBookOwl I appreciate the sweet hello!!! If you want to enter feel free... I can always send books to your kindle @ShyBookOwl ( assuming you‘re in the US) for some reason my Amazon US account can‘t ship or gift books to other countries 🤷‍♀️ 8mo
Cinfhen I stopped following back new followers unless we have some interaction @BarbaraBB and part of me is VERY tempted to cull my follower list to only people that I really interact with... this way I can actually see what my friends are reading and posting. Otherwise I miss seeing posts Im interested in. 8mo
ShyBookOwl @Cinfhen that's so nice of you to offer, but I am in Canada 8mo
Cinfhen Darn. That‘s too bad @ShyBookOwl ☹️ 8mo
BarbaraBB I always do that, keeping my following list small (relatively) because I really want to read about books/genres I am interested in and posts from people I like / am interested in! (edited) 8mo
DebinHawaii Such a nice idea for a giveaway @Cinfhen 🤗I share the pain of too many followers. I was made a suggested user back in the day & felt obligated to follow everyone because the SU list had so few current people on it. When I had my health scare I got behind & then went to only following those who posted & I still have 14K+ followers although I follow about 1/2 that number due to the low posting rate. It does make it an effort to see friend's posts😟 8mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen yes, it made Litsy a little less fun. ☹️ I was ready not to be one when library thing removed me. 8mo
TrishB I only follow back now when people have posted or interacted with me. I still have too many just no time to think about culling really. I tend to look individually at friends every couple of days if I think I‘ve missed their posts. 8mo
Cinfhen Happy you found me @DebinHawaii with our time difference I often miss your posts!! And I miss seeing you and Max 💜 8mo
GypsyKat Such a sweet idea! 💖 8mo
Centique @TrishB I do the same thing Trish. And my time difference is such that I need to go look up friends each time I‘m on here and see what I‘ve missed - which is why I all of a sudden turn up and like eight posts at once! 😂 8mo
Centique Just out of interest - even before Library Thing - when I first started on here I went searching for people to follow, looking up different names and consistently found about two thirds of each search return were blank accounts. It seemed bizarre that it was such a massive percentage - they should clean some out I reckon. 8mo
TrishB @Centique agreed! I know I end up liking things 2 days after they‘re posted! But that‘s fine too 😁 8mo
Cinfhen Thanks @GypsyKat 💋💋 8mo
Cinfhen It is odd @Centique !!!!!! 👇🏼 (edited) 8mo
Cinfhen Not that u comment 3 days later but that new followers don‘t seem to be active at all 8mo

1. I‘m genre-fluid! I go through phases of enjoying a particular genre and then I‘ll move on to something else. Loving police procedurals at the moment.

2. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

3. Gloucester, England

4. I do most of my reading when I‘m out walking (yes, an actual physical book). My bf is clearing out his place so that when I move in with him I can have my own library with a big wing-back chair.

#OldMeetsNewGiveAway @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I like that term #genreFluid 😂😂😂and I really enjoyed Elenor , too💜Thanks for posting and sharing. 8mo
TheEllieMo @Cinfhen I just can‘t stay faithful to one genre. I‘ve read 23 books so far this year across 8 genres! 8mo
