I had the thought this morning that I must be approaching my first year using Litsy. Well, it turns out today actually IS my Litsyversary! Thank you all for creating such an amazing community ❤ I'm looking forward to a second year!

Jas16 Happy Litsyversary!! 🎉🙌🏽📚 12h

So excited for the #LitsyLove Swap!! Helping out @SamanthaMarie by filling this one out!

1) Yes 😊 I even added a bunch of titles yesterday.
2) Bookmarks, my book sleeve (so books don't get bent in my bag), a book light
3) Love candles! Fancy pens in fun colors, bath bombs, stickers for #LitsyLove mail!
4) I love so many candies. Just no nuts or coffee flavors. Milk chocolate is preferred, & love it w/ caramel or coconut. All fruity gummy candy!

SamanthaMarie Yay!!! So fun. I definitely saw that you do NOT like nuts or coffee hahaha!! Easy to stay away from those. :) looking forward to our swap! 5d
Kaylamburson So excited for it!! This will be so fun!! 5d

I'm very excited for the #LitsyLoveWinterSwap

1.) Yes it is!
2.) Bookmarks ♡ Book logs ♡ Stationary ♡ Everything ha! ♡
3.) Candles, socks, book bags, book related paraphernalia
4.) CHOCOLATE. I am sadly allergic to dairy and soy so it has to be dairy/soy free. But I looooove chocolate!

I'm easy going!!!

@Kaylamburson I'd love to know your answers though I already thoroughly stalked your Litsy and I'm pretty sure I know what I'm getting you 🤣

Kaylamburson Ohhh I didn't realize we had each other, ha! I've stalked you, too lol. But this is extremely helpful! I'll fill this out and post 😊😊😊 5d
SamanthaMarie @Kaylamburson Hahahaha yes!! Misty made it easier on herself since #LitsyLove is so big :) I'm excited. (Also, I saw way back when that you met Peter Hermann!!!!) 5d
Kaylamburson Hahaha some serious stalking. And I did!! He was so friendly and crazy TALL. And I definitely don't blame her! 5d

I'm still behind, but caught up on about half of my #LitsyLove and #JB replies tonight while doing something completely unbookish related--watching The Bachelorette and listening to podcast recaps if the episode, haha.


I just started using Litsy's website and not just the app and I'm loving it! I feel it's much easier to interact with what people post.

jillrhudy It is! You have a reply button! 2mo

Thank you to everyone who participated!

Joined today after the joint Litsy/LibraryThing meetup yesterday evening. Thanks, Tim, for getting me into the Exhibits to get all these great books!

#ALA #FreeBooks

BookFreakOut Hello again! I also picked up Luminous Dead and Terra-Two! Managed to get everything packed up under the airline weight limit. 3mo
drneutron @BookFreakOut Luminous Dead will probably be the first one I read, but unfortunately, I picked up 6 library books before I left (and have a seventh waiting for me). So I have to figure out how to interleave the two batches. 😁 3mo
charl08 Still super impressed by this haul. One day I will get to an ALA meeting! 3mo

SqueakyChu Welcome to Litsy! Great book haul! I‘m sure you‘ll get them all read...eventually! I hope you enjoy Litsy. I find it fun to post brief messages here about books as I read them. (edited) 2mo
drneutron Thanks! I‘ve been posting as I finish, but will probably add those in process too. 2mo
SqueakyChu @drneutron So how have you been enjoying Litsy? I love to stop right in the middle of a book just to jot down my thoughts here. 2mo
drneutron So far, I‘ve enjoyed seeing the range of what folks are reading! 2mo
humouress I'm still working out how to use Litsy, but I'm finding it useful to put down thoughts/ quotes as I read. Then I can use them to write a review on LibraryThing (and then bring the review back here and work out how to condense it right down). (edited) 4w

Help! I was trying to clean my TBR here on Litsy to take out books that I already own, and I didn‘t see a way on the app nor the website to just remove books, so I just changed them to read (which makes me anxious because I haven‘t actually read some of them!). Does anyone know if there‘s a way to remove books that we‘ve tagged as Reading, Want to Read, or Have Read???

RachelO If it‘s showing as ‘to read‘, just click the ‘to read‘ button again and it‘ll toggle off. 3mo
Rachel.Rencher @RachelO I didn't know that! Thanks for sharing. 😁 3mo
JamieArc @RachelO Oh my gosh. Of course it‘s something as simple as that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ @Rachel.Rencher I‘m glad I‘m not the only one who didn‘t know! 3mo
RachelO @JamieArc @Rachel.Rencher Oh good! I wasn‘t too sure that sentence made sense. It took me ages to work it out too! 3mo
Velvetfur @RachelO @JamieArc @Rachel.Rencher It took me a long time to work it out too - you're not alone! 😂 3mo

I think Litsy is my TBR #BookSource these days. I see so many good reviews, discussions about books quotes... I guess I add a book a day to my stack.

LapReader Hopefully we will need a fourth @Sarz. I loved your last pick. 3mo
thegreensofa I'm probably going to go in again. It's very addictive and my favourite Litsy challenge! 👏🏻😍📚. (But if a first timer needs my spot just let me know 😊 and I'll jump out for them🤘🏻) 3mo
LapReader Yay! We have four! @thegreensofa @Freespirit @Carolyn Ive already picked a book. Anyone read Euphoria? 3mo
Freespirit No @LapReader I will enrol and think about a good book😊 @thegreensofa @CarolynM 3mo
CarolynM Ok, I've signed up. I haven't read Euphoria. Has anyone read The Bridge by Enza Gandolfo? @thegreensofa @Freespirit 3mo
LapReader I haven‘t @CarolynM 3mo
Tashreads Thanks so much for the tag! Glad you‘ve found your four. I‘ve got a lot of things going on at the moment, but definitely keen to join again in the future. Enjoy 😊 3mo
Freespirit I‘m signed too..I haven‘t read either book @LapReader @CarolynM @thegreensofa 3mo
Freespirit Have you read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn @LapReader @CarolynM @thegreensofa 3mo
LapReader I haven‘t @Freespirit but keen to. 3mo
CarolynM @Freespirit It's on my TBR do I'd be keen to do that one @LapReader @thegreensofa 3mo
thegreensofa @Freespirit @LapReader @CarolynM I haven't read any of those they all sound really good! 👏🏻😀. Which Euphoria do you mean lapreader I found 4 when I searched. CarolynM I was going to read The Bridge really excited that it's a pick for LMPBC and that we are reading it together! Lol I'm feeling stupid I was so excited I forgot I had to pick something myself as well!! (😳). I will let you know what I come up with and check with you all! 😍📚❤️❤️ 3mo
Freespirit That‘s great @thegreensofa @LapReader @CarolynM it will be A Tree grows in Brooklyn from me. I had just ordered it so glad no one has read it😍Looking forward to sharing books💕 3mo
LapReader The one by Lily King @thegreensofa 3mo
thegreensofa Sounds interesting, I haven't read a book set in Papua New Guinea before. I'm a yes too! 🤓 3mo
thegreensofa @lapreader @Freespirit @CarolynM what about as my choice? It's a bit controversial, but what has attracted me is it is told in using two different timezones. (edited) 3mo
LapReader Sounds good @thegreensofa 3mo

We want the next version of the app to have a feature to see posts about your books, following books, etc.

For now, however, we did the next best thing. For now, we did the next best thing: @PostsAboutYourBooks, a special account for posts from books you‘ve stacked or posted about from across the Litsy community.

You can look at it at any time, or you can follow it, to have the posts mixed into your regular feed.

LeahBergen I just had a peek. Very cool! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo
Litsy Note: The feed doesn't include all books. We have a system that marks certain books as “probably not real,“ and those are excluded. So if you've posted about “Untitled“ or “Fitness Tracker“ you won't get all those posts mixed in. 3mo
marleed That‘s so cool. I love to go back to the newsfeeds of books I‘ve read to see what new readers to that book have said. 3mo

gilroyc I have had to unfollow the posts about books account. It seems to override the tag filter I have in place, which makes the filter seem broken. 2mo
Litsy @gilroyc If by “tag filter“ you mean tags you've muted, I want to make sure you're using Litsy on the web—tag muting only works on the web version for now (it should be coming to the app in a future release). Assuming that you're using the web and still seeing posts with muted tags get through, could you give us an example? Feel free to email at litsy@librarything.com if you'd rather not hash it out here. 2mo

Are any Litsy members going to the American Library Association meeting in Washington, DC—or just live in the DC area? We're looking to plan a meetup!

The meetup will probably be a joint Litsy/LibraryThing thing, at a bookstore cafe in the area, like Kramerbooks, or Politics and Prose are all on the table.

Post here, or on LibraryThing at http://www.librarything.com/topic/307549 .

We'll also have free day passes to give out soon.

We need your help with a Litsy “down“ image—a photo to show when Litsy is temporarily offline.

Rather than some stock photo (like above), we figured we'd ask the community for help. Just take a photo and tag it #downphoto. On June 18 we'll pick our favorite to use. We'll give out three Litsy mugs—one for the favorite and two randomly to anyone who gave it a shot.

Got an idea for a good photo? Leave it below.

Litsy Caveats! We don't absolutely promise we'll use the photo. And we may choose more than one favorite. Either way, we'll send out a mug for each favorite, and at least two more to random Littens who gave it a serious try! 4mo
LeahBergen Well! I‘m going to have to give this some thought! 🤔 4mo

Liz, I forgot to say how sweet you are with your thank you card. That is a skill in thoughtfulness I stink at. It arrived before the weekend but I put it down and became distracted!

#Changes @Megabooks

📘 The biggest change is my TBR pile is no longer a pile but a mountain... several mountains actually. It is over 1K and I am afraid to do a count.
📘 Litsy has become my favorite social media. All the others pale in comparison. I spend lots of time here and not so much on others.

Megabooks Definitely the best social media! I always feel better after I‘ve been on Litsy, and I can‘t say that about any other. 👍🏻 Thanks for answering. 😁 4mo

This is a reminder that Litsy has a Facebook group, “Onward Litsy!“ where staff and members get together to talk about the future of Litsy, discuss potential features, review new features, take polls, etc.

It's open to all Littens, with over 1,000 members already!


Litsy We know not everyone is on Facebook. But Litsy doesn't have the ability to conduct detailed, threaded, group discussions, and we didn't want to force everyone on LibraryThing, which does. Facebook was our best option.

Needless to say, we're always glad to get feedback and have what discussions we can on posts like this. - Tim
baes I wish the group was Closed (this would still be searchable). 😕 I don‘t like all my activity showing up to my FB friends in their feeds. 4mo
baes My only major recommendation for Litsy is to be able to save posts and maybe be able to turn on notifications for new comments. I can never find posts I want to check-in on later. I do like the idea of a status bar for reading progress too. 4mo

RebL I refuse to go on Facebook, but I‘ll look for threads on LibraryThing. 4mo
Litsy @RebL Sorry. I understand. I wish I had a better way. Perhaps when LibraryThing gets fully mobilized, it will be an answer. 4mo
umbrellagirl @baes I agree wrt the group being closed. I don‘t like having all comments public for anyone to see. @Litsy 4mo
Litsy @umbrellagirl @baes Thanks for the notes. I've changed it. I think the public nature helped early on, when it wasn't clear what it was. Now that more than a thousand members are on it, we can take it closed. Thanks! 4mo
umbrellagirl @Litsy Thank you! 4mo
mreads I second the saved feature mentioned, also would be nice to be able to have an owned list or notation for swap purposes 4mo
baes Awesome, thanks! I requested to join. 😊 4mo
SkeletonKey Yay! 4mo
lkpreader Good to know 😀 4mo
Megabooks Does Litsy have an algorithmic feed now or is it still chronological? I feel I am missing things. 4mo
Litsy @Megabooks Litsy's feed is still chronological, and we don't have any plans to change that in the future. If you think you're missing posts in your feed, please point us to some specific posts or accounts! You can also reach us at litsy@librarything.com if that's easier. 4mo

TheBestofLitsy 1/ I'll explain, shall I?

We've been struggling with sign-ups. 90-95% of new users never post. Most never follow anyone. They get Litsy, go through sign up and just BAIL!

As an experiment, we now auto-follow an account on sign-up. Following that account sub-follows about a dozen others. Thus, everyone gets something to look at when they sign up, unless the manually de-follow it.
TheBestofLitsy 2/ Why are there two accounts? Well, to try out different theories about what sort of auto-following works best, bringing new members into the site and using it. In tech terms, the two accounts are an A|B test. Half of members get A, half get B. Are these accounts really following the “best“? I dunno. What's best? But we hope at least to give new people something to follow, and pick a combination of accounts that will get them interested. 4mo
TheBestofLitsy 3/ What differentiates the two accounts? I will not tell you. It recently changed, actually--which is why some of you got followed. We tried two theories out A and B, and A was better. Now we're trying C against A. 4mo
TheBestofLitsy 4/ The other thing going on, though, is that we now have a technical way to follow multiple accounts through one account. That might prove useful in the future. Or, with some changes, it might be how we can effect following a book, an author or a hashtag. 4mo
julesG @TheBestofLitsy Thanks for explaining! 4mo
BarbaraBB @TheBestofLitsy You‘re really investing in Litsy, thank you for that! 4mo
