Finished Dracula & really enjoyed it! Dense & atmospheric.

Started A Lost Lady for the #catherbuddyread & continued on with King Lear for #ShakespeareReadAlong


To continue with both the Cather & Shakespeare, & to start In Cold Blood for the low-key buddy read with @merelybookish @readordierachel @Texreader (sorry if I missed anyone!)

1. Pretty much everything, but finding out about new and new to me books is at the top of the list.
2. I've tried a few swaps, but I don't think I'm good at them.
3. Nope
4. At least once a day (I've taken some leaves of absence too.)
5. I have enjoyed #friyayintro a lot. @suvata did a Steinbeck readalong that I really enjoyed. I've lurked on #ShakespeareReadalong. Currently doing the #catherbuddyread. I love the #manga hashtag. 👇

Sace 6. I'm pretty happy with the way Litsy is. There are some things that bother me, but they are on me and not really anything Litsy does. I have a love/hate relationship with social media. For the most part Litsy has remained true to its origins. There are some corners that are too social media for me, but overall it's the perfect place for readers IMO. 1w
BarbaraBB Such positive feedback. Good to read 💕 1w
Sace @BarbaraBB I mean, I have some negatives but they are so much based on my bad attitude that I can hardly blame Litsy for them! 🤣 1w

ljuliel Thanks for responding. I‘m glad you‘ve found several read along you‘ve enjoyed. I just did one and it was fun. Very low key, no stress, just read the book. 👍🏼 1w
Sace I've got one for 3. I sort of wish there was a way to prioritize feeds I follow? Like I love posts from @LauraBeth , but I have to actively search her and go to her feed. She rarely shows up on mine 😔 I guess I need to follow fewer people 🤣 1w
Sace @ljuliel those are the best kinds! 1w
ljuliel @Sace ...yea, I recently went through and cleared out my follow list and restarted it. I was missing posts that I wanted to see somehow. I do t know of another way to keep track of a certain person without looking them up. 1w
Sace @ljuliel I'm probably due for another weeding. There's no reason for me to be following thousands. 🙄 1w
ljuliel Yea, it‘s tough to keep track of that many. A lot are also dead accounts. No one has posted for mo this, some, not at all. 1w
Sace @ljuliel I tend to unfollow if it's been a while but I know I was gone for almost a year once so I still feel guilty when I unfollow 😔 1w
Sace So I see there's the #keeplitsyactive hashtag and yeah, the FOMO has kicked in, but I have to say that I don't think Litsy is doomed. It's just changing but not in a bad way. For me there are elements that are starting to feel social media-esque but I still believe it can meet the needs of every Litten. 1w
ljuliel No, it‘s not doomed. It just needs a bit of a jump start. A couple years ago, there were so many new posts per day, I spent hours trying to get through them all. Now there are big gaps. Days when I check in several times and might only see a couple new posts. 1w
Sace @ljuliel ah. I have to laugh because I actually kind of like the slowdown. I am easily overwhelmed and I like when there is more conversation and interaction, something that can be hard when there's so much activity. 1w
LauraBeth @sace 😽😽 1w
Sace And since I'm still thinking.... Once thing I love about Litsy is that I can take crappy pictures and not feel bad 🤣 1w
Sace Aaand another thought. I prefer quality over quantity. A ton of posts with the same group hashtag -along does not interest me as much as someone posting about their slice of reading life that makes me want to interact with them. 1w

I'm #sorry that I keep talking about the books I plan to read but don't actually seem to read 😂 But the #ShakespeareReadAlong has been immensely fun and these are four retellings I hope to get around to eventually: the top two based on King Lear and the bottom two on the Tempest.

#MOvember @Cinfhen

Lcsmcat I can highly recommend the Atwood and the Smiley. Both are excellent. 1w
Cinfhen No need to apologize for posting about books.!!!! That‘s what we love to see!!!! 1w
Kalalalatja Love the cover of the tagged book 🙌 1w

erzascarletbookgasm Interesting! 1w
batsy @Lcsmcat Yes, I remember you mentioning that you enjoyed the Atwood! I'm glad to hear the same about Smiley! 1w
batsy @Kalalalatja It's so striking, isn't it 😍 1w
WhatWouldJaneDo I tore through Hagseed, it was fantastic! 1w
readordierachel Hey, if you're sorry about that, we all should be 😆 1w
GingerAntics I‘m going to have to look into these! 1w
batsy @WhatWouldJaneDo Nice! So much love for that one on Litsy; it's high on my list 🙂 1w
batsy @readordierachel I know, right! It's Litsy best practice 😂❤️ 1w
batsy @GingerAntics They're all very tempting! 1w
GingerAntics The fact Hagseed is written by Margaret Atwood really makes me want to start there. (edited) 1w
merelybookish Bad timing to mention I do have the Cesaire version of The Tempest? 1w
batsy @merelybookish 😂 I'm all aflutter this month! Does #ShakespeareReadAlong take a break next month? Would you like to attempt it then? 1w

It's been a week, so I'm sorry again for my tardiness! Finished my re-read of Tam Lin & loved it even more this time; progressed with the fascinating King Lear & made a tiny dent in Dracula!


💀 To finish Act 3 of King Lear for #ShakespeareReadAlong
🧛🏽‍♀️ Continue with the Dracula buddy read; I'm getting increasingly nervous for Jonathan!
👛 Read the required sections of A Lost Lady for #catherbuddyread


batsy Found that Wordsworth edition of Dracula at a book sale a couple years back; falls under the "so bad it's good" cover category ? 1w
Cinfhen That cover is pretty perfect 👌🏾 this book is FULL of tension!!! I‘ve been on the edge of my seat a few times already🧛‍♂️ 1w
erzascarletbookgasm I‘m not a fan of the Dracula cover! 🙅‍♀️😂 1w

erzascarletbookgasm I‘m getting nowhere with King Lear! How are you finding it? I haven‘t seen much posts on the read along? 1w
JennyM Hang in there lovely. Hope you‘re ok 😘 1w
sudi I have the same wordsworth edition but it has a different picture, this one feels more suited to this book. 1w
batsy @Cinfhen It is quite gripping even at the start and I'm enjoying the writing so far! 1w
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm 😂 @sudi These black Wordsworth covers are pretty strange but I like this toothy face as well, I have to say! 😁 I realised there was another cover for this edition when I checked Goodreads. 1w
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm I'm enjoying it very much! But it requires a lot of concentration. @GingerAntics posts a weekly catch up and discussion :) 1w
batsy @JennyM Thank you, you're too sweet! ❤️ Just a bit busy and hectic, is all :) 1w
Cathythoughts Well done 👍❤️ 1w
batsy @Cathythoughts Thanks Cathy, happy to be on track a bit 😁❤️ 1w
erzascarletbookgasm I kept searching using the hashtag but couldn‘t find many posts on King Lear or any on the discussions. No wonder..her profile is set private. I need to follow her. 1w
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm Oh, I didn't realise that! 1w
