Early Riser | Jasper Fforde

I have a couple of questions about litsy that have nothing to do with the book i am curently reading.

1.) Why am I limited to 451 characters in Reviews. I understand the limitation in blurbs and quotes. But reviews?!! I need more words to really capture what i thought of the book.

2.) Do i always have to tag a book in order to post a blurb? Can i use a hashtag?


julesG Can't answer 1) with anything but "it is so". As to 2), yes, yiu always need to tag a book. You can tag an untitled book. 1mo
rsteve388 Thats fair and good to know. 1mo
readingjedi If you need to say more in a review you can always use the comments. I do it all the time. 1mo
Kaye I‘ll just add my comment on your limited number of space for a review. I always struggle with that myself, as I‘m quite wordy. I‘ve had to learn to pare down my reviews to the basics with a general opinion of what I thought of the book and whether I‘d recommend it. 1mo
rsteve388 Ah adding more of thw review to the comment section. Sounds good. 1mo

I just wanted to check-in with my fellow #LMPBCnC -ers and make sure we all got our next book.

@Elma @TheLibrarian @monalyisha


MirrorMask I've sent an email to @Elma so hopefully I'll hear something soon. 1mo
monalyisha I haven‘t yet started mine — but I received it & I just finished a book today, so I‘ll likely start it tonight. I‘m a little bit reluctant, though, as I saw that @TheLibrarian struggled with it. Wish me luck! 1mo
TheLibrarian @MirrorMask @monalyisha @Elma I haven‘t received my next book yet. 1mo

bookandcat Ooh I just bought this at Indie bookstore day! I hope it's good 1mo
MirrorMask @bookandcat I'm really enjoying it so far 1mo
MirrorMask @monalyisha Good Luck!! 1mo
MirrorMask @TheLibrarian That's my main concern. I don't know if @Elma got the first book, so you won't be receiving one and I just sent a second book to the same address. I really hope she emails me back. 1mo
monalyisha @MIrrorMask @TheLibrarian I'm sure we could reach out to @suvata if need be, as well! 1mo
monalyisha The book I received does have comments from both @TheLibrarian & @Elma! (It started with the latter, then went to the former, then to me). It‘s neat to see two colors of notes in there! #newbie #easilyimpressed 1mo
TheLibrarian @MirrorMask Any luck hearing back yet? 1mo
MirrorMask @TheLibrarian I haven't heard anything. I uesd the email she put down when she signed up, so I don't know how often she checks it. 1mo

#LMPBC #round5 #groupQ I‘m thinking one of these... Thoughts? Any read already or feel strongly for or against? I tried to include a mix with contemporary, historical fiction, chicklit, and children‘s. I tagged books in the comments. @mrsmarch @Meaw_catlady @CindyRene

CindyRene I have not read any of these and all look interesting. No strong feeling against any. Looking forward to reading your pick! Thank you for asking 😊 4mo
mrsmarch I‘m not sure I could read Angry Housewives...one of the character descriptions was a little too close to home. 😢 Sorry. The rest all sound interesting! 4mo
mrsmarch @AnneFindsJoy @CindyRene @Meaw_catlady Do we want to have a theme for the reads or just share whichever most excites us? I like this collage approach too. 4mo
AnneFindsJoy @mrsmarch @CindyRene @Meaw_catlady I‘m fine with theme or random picks... I had seen Littens posting choices and got #excited #newbie 😂 4mo
mrsmarch @AnneFindsJoy I didn‘t stay up in bed last night thinking of books 😂 4mo
Meaw_catlady Ooh those all sound interesting to me! Besides the angry housewives. 4mo
mrsmarch On additional reflection, this sounds interesting 4mo
AnneFindsJoy @mrsmarch @Meaw_catlady @cindyrene sure let‘s go with this one, and I will use turquoise/teal pen 4mo
Meaw_catlady Yay! That one looks super good! 4mo
CindyRene Perfect! This looks good 💜 4mo

Readathon: Occasional List : Geleentheidslys | Gauteng (South Africa). Education Media Service

I‘ve never participated in a readathon before I‘m super excited that #24B4Monday will be my first.

This is 24 hours before Monday right? #Newbie.

Elma The goal is to get 24 reading hours in from midnight Friday-11:59 PM Sunday. A lot of people log their time with a stopwatch and post screenshots of their progress. 7mo
Bookjunkie57 @Elma just what I thought. Thank you. 7mo
Andrew65 Great to have you with us for your first readathon. 🤗 Remember the most important thing is to have fun and share your success with all us Littens. If you get to 24 hours that is just an added bonus. I just try to get to a better time each time I take part. Not sure that I will get to 24 hours this time with other commitments. @TheReadingMermaid (edited) 7mo
Andrew65 Thanks @Elma 👍 (edited) 7mo
Andrew65 I tend to use the stopwatch facility on my iPad and take screen shots. 7mo

So... not sure if this is how you just make a post... BUT. I think I‘m gonna transfer my goodreads books from this year to here. I like how potentially #interactive this is!!! #newbie
