#LitsyLove going out tomorrow!! I‘m close to being caught up!! Welcome letters to @Captivatedbybooks @Eggs @julieclair (hopefully they will reach you this time Julie!)

@catiewithac @UwannaPublishme @TheBookHippie @wordslinger42 @Mimi28 @ShelleyBooksie


julieclair How fun! Fingers crossed the mail gods are looking kindly upon me now, lol! 📪💌 6d
CatLass007 I was inactive on Litsy for a few years until the beginning of summer. There‘s been a lot of upheaval in my life, and this is the first year in a while that my life has not been in upheaval. I signed up for #JustBecause at about the same time #LitsyLove was starting. I‘m wondering if #JustBecause is still active. I was unpacking the contents of my desk and found four envelopes on which my old return address labels and stamps had been (cont)⬇️ 6d
CatLass007 placed. I can‘t remember off the top of my head if I had put the full name and address of the intended recipients on the envelopes. I did put the #JB on the back of the envelopes. Does anyone know who was hosting #JustBecause? And if it‘s still active? 6d

Bklover @CatLass007 I don‘t think #jb is still active. I was in it from the start and I think as Litsylove got bigger it just sort of faded away. Last updated list I got was from March of 2021. 6d
CatLass007 @Bklover Thank for the info! Now if I can just figure out what to do with with these envelopes with forever stamps on them… 6d
Captivatedbybooks I bought stamps yesterday! 6d
Mimi28 Thanks Misty!! ❤️😊🙏🏽😻😎 5d

I spent the morning driving around dropping books at Little Free Libraries in my general area and then working on this fun little puzzle my sis gave me, all while listening to the tagged book.

LibrarianRyan Yeah. I have a stack that i was originally going to put inthe Lamphere LFL or the Washington Middle School Library, but since mine is getting closer to being done, I am in a holding pattern. 3y
Soubhiville @Mimi28 I‘m really bad about answering emails... the #jb list should be in your email... the updated one was sent out last week some time. I can forward it. All I have to do is click on the attachment to open it. 3y

Hi friends! Reading the comments on @TheAromaofBooks page made me realize how many activities have helped people join our community- I know joining my first swap changed litsy for me.

I may miss some- feel free to add to it, with any information you want to include!

BookishBelle Don‘t forget #lmpbc (Litsy Markup Postal Book Club) hosted by @suvata Next sign up is in Feb/March, I think. You start or join a group of four. You each buy a book, read it, and send it on. By the end, you‘ve read four books and get your book back with comments from your group members. So fun! And a way to read things you might not have read on your own. 3y
Cuilin Hope it‘s ok to comment here, There are so many readalongs too for people interested in reading a specific author with a group. Check out #pemberlittens, for Jane Austen fans #shakespearereadalong #whattheDickens is new starting in January and open to all. Great idea @Chrissyreadit 3y

Deblovestoread And I would just add that it is easy to overcommit and not to worry if you do. Everyone is fantastic and if you are like the rest of us you want to read ALL the books. 3y
DebinHawaii What a great idea! ❤️❤️❤️ 3y
Butterfinger @AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie and @AsYouWish have #NovelWatchingCrew - read the book; watch the movie, a club for paranormal reads and many others. Litsy has things for everyone. I don't think I saw #LitsyLove @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks or #jb @CBee - penpal groups. @Andrew65 @Tove_Reads @EadieB did #NordicNoir. Thanks for doing this. What a treasure trove. 3y
CBee Awesome idea, @Chrissyreadit 🥰🥰🥰 3y

Chrissyreadit @Butterfinger I feel the same way about you! ❤️❤️❤️ 3y
alisiakae What a great idea! And I see some read alongs and challenges I didn‘t really know about. I can‘t wait until work slows down so I can dive into some of these further! In addition to being a co-host of #booked2021, mentioned above, I also host #screamathon every October. I don‘t think I saw this mentioned, but @LibrarianRyan does #BBRC babies and beyond RC, and @ElizaMarie has the monthly #selfcare bingo sheet! And I would be all for ⬇️ 3y
bthegood Thx for posting. I added @LitsyHappenings to follow, forgot about it after I started. ⛄ 3y
alisiakae Cont‘d I would love to see @wanderinglynn to bring back the #bookfitnesschallenge! 🙌🏽 (edited) 3y
Nute This post and thread is wonderful even for a seasoned Litsy participant. It‘s a timely reminder of all things wonderful on Litsy. I‘m making notes! Thanks everyone!💕 3y
Nute I just want to add hashtags that have given attention to literature by People of Color: #ReadSoulLit - an annual photo reading challenge that takes place in February, Black History Month, and then encourages increased reading of books by black authors all year long (hosted by @BrownGirlReading ). 3y
Chrissyreadit @Nute thank you so much! I just followed @BrownGirlReading I don‘t know how this was not on my radar!! 3y
Chrissyreadit @4thhouseontheleft I agree I wish @wanderinglynn just had a #bfc that was monthly. I love my group that continues on WhatsApp. Also @LibrarianRyan gave me a bunch to put on but I had Class right after I posted and this thread became exactly what litsy is to me! A vibrant community of diverse reading activities- I just love this space of social media. Thank you for joining into the thread too ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3y
Nute Also for increased diverse reading experiences using the following hashtags: #blitsy (thank you @Chelleo ), #integrateyourshelf ( thanks @Emilymdxn and @ChasingOm ). 3y
Nute @Chrissyreadit We need a roundup every now and then. Thanks for doing this!💕 3y
Chrissyreadit @Nute this is totally a team effort!! I could never have done this alone- and I just hope this list can be shared with as many people as possible. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m in so many group reads on here now, and now I just found even more! So great team effort! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa And now I‘m thinking of all the reading challenges we do throughout the year like #LitsyAtoZ with @BookishMarginalia or #MountTBR through Goodreads, or all the other ones that have followings here like #ReadHarder or #Popsugar or Booked2020 now #Booked2021 and so many more (edited) 3y
NovelGirl82 @4thhouseontheleft Hii! Long time no see!! I agree! Lots of things on here that I either haven‘t seen or have forgotten about. I‘m ready for work to slow down (thanks covid) and for this last year of grad school to be over so I can play with you guys more again!! 3y
wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft then maybe we‘ll do another round in the new year. ☺️ 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Here‘s a post with lots of group tags you can check out when you‘re ready to explore, and people you can follow! Have fun @Gingereads_everything 3y
Mrs_B Hey Chrissy, would this work do you think: https://sites.google.com/view/litsywelcomewagon/home ? 3y
Chrissyreadit @Mrs_B I love that you knew how to add that link- I was trying to figure out how to combine that information with this in one space that every time it‘s tagged doesn‘t make it harder to scroll. @RaimeyGallant @TrishB @julesG @Chelleo have put together amazing resources but I did not know how to link it this way! Thank you so much!!!! 3y
Chrissyreadit @Mrs_B is there a way to “archive” this thread so it can be added to the site? I‘d be glad to have a link in my bio - to the above I just have to figure out how. I‘m not techno savvy 3y
Mrs_B @Chrissyreadit hey Chrissy, great idea, I‘ll hyperlink the picture to this post. Did you click through the pages on the site? 3y
Chrissyreadit @Mrs_B yes- I remember when they were made- I just did not know there was a single link to access it. I always tell people to scroll the hashtag. 3y
Chrissyreadit Wow!!! @Mrs_B that‘s Amazing!!!! I will add the link to my bio page today. 3y
Chrissyreadit @RaimeyGallant I love having easy access to the info you and @Chelleo did. I‘m going to put it in my bio today. 3y
Mrs_B @RaimeyGallant the videos and tips are amazing. 3y
audraelizabeth Im hosting a #stackingtheseries next year. 3y
Chrissyreadit @audraelizabeth that sounds great! 3y
Crazeedi Just saw this! What a great resource, I'd love to print this whole post!! 3y
Rissreads This is fantastic! I‘ve screen shot it all! 👏🏻 3y
