His Family | Ernest Poole
post image
Pickpick

First ever #PulitzerPrize for the Novel winner back in 1918. It‘s a rather touching family drama about a widower and his three adult daughters. One is dedicated to domestic life and motherhood, one is a teacher and social reformer, and one is a socialite who just wants to enjoy life. Through these three women‘s lives Poole explores what it meant to be a woman in turn of the century New York. An enjoyable read overall. #litsyclassics

Excellent Women | Barbara Pym

Pickpick

Enjoyed this humorous novel written in the 1950s about Mildred, an unmarried woman in her 30s, and her relationship with the people in her London neighborhood and church. Mildred belongs to the class of “excellent women” who seem to exist solely to assist the helpless men in their lives. A portrait of post war England, the novel examines a rapidly changing society in a light-hearted way through the eyes of Mildred. #classics #litsyclassics

Night and Day | Virginia Woolf

I bought myself a couple of presents at the bookstore. I guess I‘m just feeling the Woolf & Dickens vibes, these days.

JennyM That is a very beautiful Woolf ❤️ 3y

Moray_Reads What a beautiful edition! Have you read it before? 3y
saresmoore @Moray_Reads I haven‘t, but I‘m really looking forward to it! I‘m assuming you‘ve read it? 3y
Moray_Reads @saresmoore I think it was the first Woolf I read. Less modernist than her later stuff but still exquisitely written 3y
OnlyYoo I loved Bleak House. Possible my favorite Dickens so far! 3y
batsy That Woolf 😍 Bleak House is still tbr for me, I had grand plans to read it for #litsyclassics last year but, well, 😆 3y
emilyhaldi One gorgeous and one chunkster - a good combo! 🙌🏻 Happy to see you back on Litsy, you‘ve been missed!! 3y
Centique @OnlyYoo Bleak House is my favourite Dickens so far too 😊 Enjoy Sara! 3y
saresmoore @emilyhaldi ♥️♥️♥️ 3y
saresmoore @OnlyYoo @Centique @AnneCecilie That‘s very encouraging to hear! 3y
saresmoore @batsy I‘m honestly impressed that you can remember what was on your list for #litsyclassics! You know I‘d be up for a buddy read, but you probably also have deduced that I‘m a notoriously flaky buddy reader... 😬🤷‍♀️ 3y
batsy @saresmoore I'm game if you are! Perhaps later in the year? 😁 #flakybuddyreadersunite 3y

Litsy Tips
Vivlio_Gnosi Does @Litsy allow users to follow a hashtag or are we restricted to just searches? 3y
Litsy @Vivlio_Gnosi At the moment, just searching. But, yes, that's something we're planning. Thanks! 3y
DieAReader I‘m trying to tag a new Litsy user & I can‘t seem to always gets her name to come up. Am I doing something wrong? There‘s a space in her name & as soon as I add it, I‘m no longer in the tagging screen. Help plz? 3y
Chrissyreadit @SquidgetsRoom there aren‘t spaces in litsytags. Sometimes it is hard- I‘m not sure why. If their real name is available you can type it- those do have spaces between first and last names. I‘m just another Litsy user- so cant answer why. If you are on Facebook and go to the Onward Litsy page you may get better information. 3y
DieAReader Ok thanks @Chrissyreadit I‘ll take a look for sure! 3y

“Our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone - has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash - together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” (from Youth: A Narrative) #josephconrad #litsyclassics #holidayreads

Thank you @BookwormM - it arrived safely this morning 😊. Really not sure how I‘ll get on with this one, but looking forward to giving it a try - and it‘s 112 pages short, which always helps 👍

batsy This is on my list! Planned to read for #litsyclassics last year but never happened. Love this edition 💙 4y
BookwormM Glad it arrived safely let us know how you get on 👍😃 4y

I am actually quite satisfied with how I did overall with my year-long reading challenges! I came close with #LitsyAtoZ, but put aside the last few to finish up #pop18.

#LitsyClassics went to the wayside, but I think I did read at least 6. Apparently, alphabet challenges are not my thing. 🤷🏻‍♀️🥳

alisiakae Plus #MountTBR which I momentarily forgot all about! My goal was 24, and I read 30. 🥳🥳🥳 4y
