1. I think Anne Elliot is my favorite, but I also love Lizzy and Elinor.
2. I can‘t decide. It‘s obviously one of Jane Austen‘s characters, but I love them all. Okay not all, but Mr. Darcy, Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth, Edward Ferras, Colonel Brandon - they all share 1. place 😬
3. Little women. I really like it, but I have to admit it‘s going slooow 🙈
Thanks for the tag @BeeCurious 😊

BeeCurious Great answers! It is really difficult to decide on just one favorite character.
Even if you finish Little Women before June/July, I hope you'll consider following along with the chapter-a-day buddy read via #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade.
Little Women will be a reread for me but I always learn something new from other reader's perspectives and comments. 🙂
BeeCurious If you are looking for people to follow on Litsy, you could try looking up the books you like (such as Little Women or Persuasion) and then follow the readers who posted reviews for that book. Someone made that suggestion to me when I joined. 🙂📚 1w

Eggs @BeeCurious Great suggestion❣️ 1w
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious thanks for the suggestion! I tried to do that with a few lesser known books I read recently but most of them aren‘t even listed here 🙈 1w
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious can you explain the # to me? I still don‘t really get how it works here 😬 1w
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious and one other thing - do you know why this post was once posted with and another time without a picture? 🤔 1w
BeeCurious @funkelbunt.liest - As this recommendation was kindly made to me upon joining Litsy, I'd also suggest referring to a few helpful Litsy 'how-to' websites and videos that were created by the awesome @Chelleo and, @Chrissiereadit among others. 🙂 They really help new members figure out how Litsy works, which is a bit overwhelming at first. (There are more buddy reads now than listed but you'll get the idea.) Links to 'how-to' in a message below.

BeeCurious The # hashtags are often used to tag or indicate buddy reads or groups on Litsy, that way you can follow a buddy read you are interested by looking up the hashtags. For example if you are interested in seeing everyone's posts related to #hashtagbrigade , then just look it up using the search function. Hashtags are also used to describe book genres, readathons & holiday team competitions like #scarathlon in October. You can make up hashtags too! 😁 1w
BeeCurious Litsy Welcome Wagon tips:

For additional groups, buddy reads, readathons, etc that aren't listed, I'd suggest looking through the old LitsyEvents posts and following them, which I think you already did. 👏

Litsy How-to videos on YouTube:

BeeCurious As for why you post was listed 2x, once without the photo, I'm not sure. I've had a glitch with it taking an exorbitant amount of time to post, & I think it didn't work. Then I try again, and it ends up posting 2x times. For a double post, you could always go back and delete one of the posts. I'm not sure if you are using the app or the web version. For the web version, just tap the 3 dots ... in the lower right corner. Tap delete. Then tap 'ok'. 1w
BeeCurious I didn't mean to write a book here, but I hope this info helps. 😁

Everyone is nice here so if you have a question about someone's specific buddy read or readathon or hashtag, etc, then feel free to ask in the comments below their posts, too.

Thank you to @BethM and @tpixie for originally making some of the suggestions listed in comments above, to me.

I was a little down & out this past week (recovering still but much better today) so I was slow to open & post about this wonderful box when it arrived last week from @TheSpineView for winning her #Spookoween Bingo drawing for #Scarathlon

Lisa, Thank you so much!!! 🤗 I was expecting just the book (which came just at the right time as I wasn‘t finished with my library copy & had to return it Saturday). I am blown away by the additional B&N ⬇️

DebinHawaii …gift card, cute tote bag, yummy candle, mushroom note pad, adorable bookmarks & tabs & of course chocolate.🍫🍫You WAY over did it & it was a treat to open on Saturday when I was starting to feel somewhat human again. I truly appreciate it & you! 💙💙💙 1mo

I am posting one book per day from my extensive, and ever growing, TBR shelves. Some are new and some are old, some were gifts, and some I don't remember why I bought them.

Anyone else suffering from #WinterGames hangover?

AnnR Yep, a little. I'm partially sad and partially relieved not to keep score now. 2mo
dabbe I'm still hung over from #Scarathlon. 🤩😂😍 2mo
TieDyeDude Winter Games looked like fun, but no way I was doing that so soon after scarathlon 2mo

AmandaBlaze @AnnR I had to stop myself from using my tally clicker. No more Word Search. Now to concentrate on #WickedWords. 2mo
AmandaBlaze @dabbe @TieDyeDude I definitely started to lose steam at the end. Maybe next year will be a solo Scarathlon. 2mo

emz711 How do we get involved in the next one? 2mo
kwmg40 @emz77 Usually, there are big month-long events for October (#scarathlon) and December (#wintergames). I recommend following @LitsyEvents, as most events are announced there, with sign-up information provided. 2mo

TorieStorieS I think I only ended up with 417 points by my count! 2mo
LiseWorks @TorieStorieS thank you for playing 2mo
aperfectmjk Well 2023 went out with a bang for me, I ended up with Covid, so I'm so behind. I didn't get to complete as much reading as I wanted, but I did manage to snag some points with the Scramble game. I'm going to try to update what I can, I may have to just sacrifice some points, such as some of the bingos and readathons because it's too much to go back and calculate now. 2mo
LiseWorks Oh dear, hope you feel better, do what you can 2mo
aperfectmjk @LiseWorks I almost forgot to send you my numbers. I didn't get everything calculated, but I'm turning in 82,632. 2mo
aperfectmjk @LiseWorks that's for the second half, grand total is 115,496. 2mo
LiseWorks Thanks, @aperfectmjk that is great amount of points for someone who was sick. The totals have been calculated though, I think it's too late to add them. 2mo
aperfectmjk @Liseworks... awww... I'm so sorry. 2023 was a crap year for me. I'm glad it's over. 2mo
LiseWorks @aperfectmjk I want you in my team for #scarathlon next year. Ask for it lol 2mo

I think most of them were read during #scarathlon and #wintergames

I react very positively to points gathering 😅

19 of them were from #roll100 and I'm hoping to actually get some more physical books read this year

Ruthiella Awesome! 👏👏👏 2mo

#Rushathon #OutWithTheOldInWithTheNew #readathon #SeriesLove202

My 2nd-to-last book of the year is another #ARC that will publish in Feb. Book 3 in the Supernatural Singles series I read in October for #Scarathlon. This one focuses on the 3rd Maxwell witch sister Olive & guardian angel Bax. Like the other books, it‘s a cute paranormal rom-comish story, nothing earth-shattering but light & easy, so a soft pick. Start with the 1st book, tagged ⬇️

Happy anniversary to me! Today is my 5 year anniversary of being on Litsy. I love it here. I‘ve been on here for 5 years and I never participated in any Litsy Events until this year. My first Litsy event I participated in was #scarathlon and my second one that I‘m participating in this month is the #wintergames.


kelli7990 Next year, I‘m hoping to participate in #SeriesLove2024 hosted by @Andrew65 and also participate in a readalong for Sherlock Holmes hosted by @Cuilin & @dabbe. I have a lot of Netgalley ARCs to read in 2024 but I‘m hoping that I can find time to participate in these events. 2mo
Andrew65 @kelli7990 Happy fifth anniversary 🍾🥂. We‘d love to have you join us in #SeriesLove2024. I love the Sherlock Holmes books. 2mo

#wintergames questions for #snowflakesquad with a picture of my book haul. If you can buy books from Forbidden Planet, they come in protective wrap!

1) Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhou
2) Probably one of the Mafia romances I read for #scarathlon
3) Nope
4) No! I laze around and eat leftovers
5) It was a rainy Christmas
