Before, when you search or click a hashtag, Litsy showed posts tagged with that hashtag

Now, for some hashtags, like #cozies, #paranormal or #AmericanHistory you also get posts on books that ARE that tag—paranormal books, horror books, American history books.

• This is a GREAT way to find people who read the genres you love!
• Tags are drawn from LibraryThing's 140m user-added tags.
• No posts are removed; most Litsy hashtags are unaffected.

umbrellagirl Thank you! 2mo
TimSpalding There are a lot of wrinkles here, if anyone is interested. For my part, this has made Litsy much more useful, because I can search for genres and topics I care about. Absent this, I was lost trying to find my tribe on Litsy. Now I can search for hashtags like #AncientHistory #GreekHistory #Archaeology #EarlyChurch #Turkish and find lots of posts about books I care about, and the people who write them. (edited) 2mo

TimSpalding In other words, whether YOU like it or not, I LOVE it. [runs from the room] (edited) 2mo
saresmoore Super cool! 2mo
JennyM Awesome! Thanks guys 2mo
speljamr I like this and will be exploring this more. 2mo
Crazeedi Great!! 2mo
gilroyc I'd rather the two searches be separate. Genre isn't the same as hashtags. 2mo
TimSpalding 1/So, we had a choice. A new feature along those lines would take a lot of work and therefore cost a lot of money. And where would it go? Or perhaps we could tell people to use ## instead of #. Or we could have a setting that turned it off and on. But Litsy is an aggressively simple application, and I think it's worth keeping it such. To reverse it, when you search for #horror, do you really only want posts tagged that way? (edited) 2mo
TimSpalding 2/ I think most of the time you're interested in horror generally, and if it surfaces posts about horror books—some tagged horror by the posters and some not—that's good. 2mo
TimSpalding 3/ I'm interested to hear cases where it falls down, if any. We might also add a line at the end of posts like: This book was tagged #horror by other users so you know why. Or even list a few such tags. And, yes, we can add a setting to turn it off. But I need to see significant examples where it's worse before we add complexity. 2mo
rretzler Hmmm. Now I just need to try to figure out what hashtags are applicable to the books I like since I don‘t use any particular hashtags on LT 2mo
BarbaraBB Thank you!! 2mo
LibrarianRyan Great. Thank you. 2mo

CouronneDhiver 👍🏽 2mo
LeahBergen Oh, this is exciting! 👏🏻 2mo
Litsy @Madison91 What are you looking for a grid view of? 2mo
Madison91 @Litsy peoples pages, or is there already a way to do that? 2mo
TimSpalding @Madison91 Your point of reference on grid views is Instagram here, right? 2mo
Madison91 @TimSpalding yes! Saves me time on scrolling 😅 2mo
Stephjotsdown Hi, I just discovered Litsy and i am loving it. But when I was updating my books, i find that quite a number of titles cannot be found in Litsy. How can I alert Litsy to add these books?

My 26th Mrs. Murphy mystery and one more to go before I pull up to current. I‘ve come to like the dual stories between present day and the 1700‘s. Pewter always makes me laugh with her big ego and waist. After reading this many adventures, I feel like I‘m part of their family!

Another great #bookhaul from the #librarybooksale.
Amazingly, I only bought one duplicate. In additional to some new to me books there are two chunksters, a few #cozies, and the new Kay Hooper I've been wanting.
Plus, I picked up a few good ones for gifts.

tessavi Some great finds! 3mo
Crazeedi That's a great stack! 3mo
Avanders Wow I think your library sales are better than ours! (And ours are pretty great 😁) 2mo

The latest stack of #cozies by my bed. These are the ones calling to me right now.
Also on top is the horsemanship book I used back in the day when I did horse shows.

Avanders 2 of these are on my shortlist too! 😁 4mo

I can't stop with the lists!
Here is my #TBRbingo card, #cozies edition. I own all of these; most are paperback, but a few are #kindle books.

ReadingRover The Bailey Cates books are fun 🧁 4mo
RedxoHearts I will have to look into some of these. I love cozies 4mo

I really like this Santa Fe cozy mystery series (so far!) -- I like the characters, the mystery, the pace, and I really enjoy the "local" setting. I *think* it's a good cozy, even if you don't know the city, but it's fun reading a cozy set in a place I know pretty well. :) In this one, I ended up having suspicions but nevertheless being a little surprised w/ the reveal. I always enjoy that. ;) Definitely looking forward to book 3!

A free fantasy for your weekend! With more giveaways coming soon!

When it comes to books, it doesn‘t get better than free! But we don‘t recommend just any free book. We look for titles that actually excite us. Solid writing. Good reviews. An interesting premise. This one‘s a contemporary witchy mystery with a bit of romance, in the vein of Practical Magic!

It took me most of the day, but I finally got my kitchen island put together while listening to the 2nd book in the "Scottish Bookshop Mystery" series.
