Anyone know how to delete a Litsy account?

DGRachel Is there an option in the settings? 9mo
Texreader No! Don‘t leave! 9mo
Avanders Shake your phone and ask? (something about shaking your phone to ask the Devs questions....) Hope everything is okay! 🤗🤗 (edited) 9mo

Bostonmomx2 @DGRachel nope. I‘ve sent the devs two messages now too and no response. 9mo
Bostonmomx2 @Texreader yup. It‘s time. 9mo
Bostonmomx2 @Avanders oh I‘m fine. Spending more time on other things now and unfortunately litsy has gotten too political for me so I‘m out. 9mo
Avanders Aw I'm sorry to hear that ☹️ But I'm glad it's nothing bad for you! 🤗 I guess, just log out and delete the app? That's probably what I'd do if I hadn't heard back from the devs .. 9mo
eanderson Don‘t leave! Or maybe take a break and come back! 9mo
Bookishlie Get different friends! 9mo
Texreader @Bookishlie Amen to that! That happened to me at some point here and I just stopped following those folks. It helped tremendously. 9mo
rubyslippersreads We‘d miss you! 🙀 I agree with @eanderson about just taking a break for awhile. And with @Bookishlie and @Texreader about not following anyone who doesn‘t make you happy. 9mo
Sungirl79 Yes don‘t let anyone push you out of Litsy! Unfollow them!! I am sorry that happened to you 😢 9mo
julesG Please don't go! Take a break. Unfollow the annoying people. But please stay with us. 9mo

While I did really enjoy this, I found it very difficult to keep track of the family tree. Thankfully the author put an ancestry tree in the front and I probably referenced it 30 times.

It‘s that time of year again. So many books I‘ve never even heard of. Also at least one that not only isn‘t even released yet, early reviews aren‘t even very good. Kind of annoying. Not sure how books make the list or don‘t but oh well.

DGRachel I‘m doing a lot of write in votes for this opening round. There are books that I‘m devastated to see aren‘t listed. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 10mo
Bostonmomx2 @DGRachel I‘ve actually not heard of a ton of the main fiction ones. Not sure where my head was this year. 10mo

I won‘t finish another book this month so here‘s my reads for the month. It was great. I also bailed on like 4-5 books. None of these were amazing. Killing Floor was probably the best and the rest were okay to good.

I need 23 more reads to hit my goal of 100 this year. 3 months. I thinks it‘s doable!

Mehso-so

Maybe the hype was just too much but this was just okay for me. It was cute but a little “too” teen. I‘m used to more of an emotional tug when I read YA. I probably don‘t need to keep reading the trilogy and actually now don‘t feel interested in the Netflix show.

Enjoying the fall morning waiting to do some grocery shopping.

Libby1 What is Dutch Bros? Is it a restaurant? 11mo
mdm139 @Libby1 it is a coffee and tea place like Starbucks but way better with fun flavors. If you can imagine it they can probably make it. Iced, hot, frozen coffee or tea, smoothies, etc. Flavors like cinnamon roll, black forest, smores, shark bite, palm beach, etc. Check out their website, hundreds of combos. 11mo
Libby1 That sounds AMAZING. Is it just in western US states? 11mo
See All 7 Comments
mdm139 @Libby1 I don't know. We just got some in Vegas and some of my friends said they have some in Washington state so maybe it is more of a west coast thing. 11mo
Libby1 😃 11mo
Bostonmomx2 @Libby1 yes, just out west. They are Oregon based and have branched out into WA and CA and now NV. We JUST got ours here in NV this Spring. Luckily they aren‘t near me and I have to drive about 20 mins so I don‘t go as often as I‘d really like to. I‘m not a coffee drinker, only flavored iced lattes, peppermint mocha in winter but they‘re lemonades are exquisite!! We are obsessed with the vampire. Strawberry pomegranate lemonade. 🍋🍓🍋🍓 11mo
Libby1 Sounds so nice! I live VERY far away in Northern Ireland, so it‘s unlikely I‘ll get there. I‘m originally from Chicago, though, but left so long ago that I didn‘t know if it was new or just west of the Mississippi. 😊 11mo

I hesitated reading this as I have a pretty firm rule to avoid any and all things Amish but Wiggs is a favorite of mine so I decided to try. It‘s good. I like the way she‘s handling the Amish aspect.

I‘ve “bailed” on like 4 books lately so it‘s nice to have one stick.

1. I don‘t have one all time fave but there are several i can watch over and over. Remember the Titans is way high on the list.
2. I‘ll never forget waking up and seeing Alaska from the ship for the first time.
3. Health but I‘m notorious for never finishing nonfiction books.
4. Depends but I seem to gravitate towards purples.
5. Hmm. Why do you live where you live?

So my husband, who never reads, decided at Barnes and Noble he wanted to try this series. Let‘s not talk about the other half dozen books he had to have and literally never read the first page of. Well he‘s gonna have to wait a bit because I read three pages and am hooked. So far out fo my normal genre but it‘s so intriguing so far!!
