1. The people, and constantly finding new books I want to read!
2. Readathons
3. 🤔🤔
4. I definitely have peaks and valleys with my posts, but at minimum I probably average once per week.
5. I ❤️ swaps! I also enjoy questionnaires- it‘s fun to learn about everyone else. Read alongs are cool, I just never have time to join. Not into the readathons.
6. The ability to look up a book and see what Littens have it on their TBR.

@ljuliel

ljuliel Thanks for your input , it‘s interesting to see what people have the most interest in. Everyone likes Litsy for the people, so that part , everyone agrees on. 😊 2w

@ljuliel Thank you 🙏🏻💙 Can you please add hashtags?
1. The pure joy of discussing my favorite hobby with other bibliophiles AND, maybe more importantly, the building of a safe, loving place on the Internet!!
2. Memes, Litsy humor are generally eh and I just scroll past. Swaps are just okay.
3. PMs/DMs!!! and the ability to pin a reply a on a post
4. 1-3 x a day
5. Readathons 👍🏻
Swaps 👎🏻
Readalongs and Questions - sometimes
⬇️

Megabooks 6. We definitely need some type of private messaging like yesterday. Otherwise I‘m pretty happy. As others have said, I‘d be willing to pay to keep Litsy ad free. I‘ve had probably the worst two+ years of my adult life from summer 2017 on (I joined in March 2016) and reading, and having people to talk about books with, has saved me. I think that‘s also why I don‘t mind a bit of not book related traffic! 💕 We all have lives and need support! (edited) 2w
ljuliel Thank you for your replies. I‘ll try to add hashtags to my posts to the group as a whole ( like with this). I‘m just not much in the habit of using them. I‘ll try to do better. #keeplitsyactive 2w
Megabooks @ljuliel Thank you, and this was such a great idea! 2w

ljuliel @megabooks. Great comment. I agree about the PM feature , and that Litsy is a lifesaver at times. It‘s good to have a space like this to come to. A bit of a getaway 💕 (edited) 2w
Megabooks @ljuliel Totally agree! That‘s why I don‘t mind a bit of off-topic stuff. I‘ve gotten closer to people knowing their pets, kids, struggles, triumphs, but if people don‘t like those, then it‘s easy to scroll past, just like I sometimes scroll past memes and super long quotes 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
Freespirit It is a pure joy❤️ 2w
Sace Has there been talk of there being ads? 2w
TheAromaofBooks Yes, some kind of direct messaging would be really helpful! Have you heard any rumors of ads? I would also be willing to pay a reasonable amount to be an ad-free subscriber... 2w
Megabooks @Freespirit yes! 😊 2w
Megabooks @Sace @TheAromaofBooks There was a couple of years ago before Litsy was sold to LibraryThing. I haven‘t been plugged into the conversation since then, but I figured I‘d put it out there. If Litsy needs revenue (and idk what‘s true) I wouldn‘t mind paying a subscription. Just putting it out there in case LibraryThing is reading these. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
Sace @Megabooks I also like the option of free with ads or premium for ad free. 2w
Stacypatrice My brain doesn‘t function well after overnight shift and I was like, “Why does @Megabooks want PMS in Litsy? We are such a great group without it...” and then I 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😂😂😂😂 2w
Megabooks @Sace Yes! I‘d rather Litsy stay like it is now. But I‘d rather have tiered subscription than lose this community. I guess that‘s what I was trying to express. 😁 2w
Megabooks @Stacypatrice Lolololol!! I‘m newly peri menopausal so you know, I‘ll try to keep my pms off here. 😂😂😂😂 2w
Stacypatrice @Megabooks Girl - same!! 🤣 2w
Sace @Megabooks @Stacypatrice me three! *fist bump* 2w
Stacypatrice @Sace 👊🏻 2w

Answering this #litsy questionnaire for @ljuliel with the hope that together we can make this a home we all continue to love and feel comfortable sharing in. Thanks for the tag, @MrBook !
1) The community, lack of drama inside the app, all the book recs!
2) The drama on the FB page, & I'm self-conscious posting swaps, surveys, & book adjacent posts b/c I feel they aren't wanted, but I like them.
3)"favorites". Alerts/comments split on android
??

Kaylamburson 4) 1-3 times a week; 5) all of the above, but I've participated less because it seems many Littens get annoyed by them and I want this community to remain drama-free. It has become more prominent of an issue since the FB group. 6) For those that want to mute hashtags, in the settings there should be suggested hashtags to mute based on popularity. And have it available in the app. 2w
Sace Oh see... I didn't even know there was a FB page/group? I maybe that's why I felt slightly out of touch. I'm glad I deleted my FB in July 2016 🤣 2w
ljuliel Thank you. You brought up some very valid points. I‘ve never gotten into FB, so am unaware of anything that goes on there. I believe I‘ll keep it that way. I know there have been issues with swaps. I don‘t plan on doing any more myself. 2w
See All 25 Comments
vivastory I was also completely unaware of the Facebook group 2w
Kaylamburson The Facebook group was started when Litsy changed ownership to Library Thing so they could get a feel of what was and wasn't working in our community. It had a lot of good intentions, but it often feels more negative than anything I've witnessed inside Litsy itself. However, it is how I hear about new changes like hashtag muting and the new web version! @ljuliel @vivastory. Probably for the best you deleted it, @Sace 😂 2w
Sace @ljuliel oh. Swaps. Creating internet drama for me to avoid since the internet started. 🙄 2w
Sace @Kaylamburson FB is just a hive of scum and villainy. The Tatooine of the Internet 🤣🤣🤣 2w
Sace *sigh* My husband is now lecturing me. Mos Eisley is the hive 🙄 2w
vivastory @Sace Best FB analogy ever! 😄👏👍😂 2w
Kaylamburson 🤣😂🤣😂 I don't know the difference but an amazing analogy, hahaha @save @vivastory 2w
Sace @vivastory *takes a bow* 2w
sprainedbrain I think you should post what you want, and I‘m really sorry that you feel like you have to edit yourself. 🤗 2w
Kaylamburson Thank you, @sprainedbrain ! That's really good advice. I'm just such a people pleaser, but I should also think about my own desires. 2w
Kimberlone I sometimes feel the same need to self edit, but then I remember that I am on Litsy not Instagram and then I feel better about posting the things I am interested in anyway! 2w
mrp27 You do you and post away! 2w
Kaylamburson Thanks so much, @Kimberlone and @mrp27 ! 💜💜 2w
quietjenn I think you should do what you like. If people are about, it's on them. 2w
Sace @Kaylamburson apparently Tatooine is the planet and Mos Eisley the city. I think my husband was a little ashamed of me for not knowing. 🤣 2w
Kaylamburson I'm going to find a way to drop those in every day conversation with my boyfriend and he'll be shocked and impressed 🤣😂 @sace 2w
Sace Learn from my mistake young padawan. 😂 2w
Kaylamburson 🤣😂 may the force be with you @Sace 2w
ljuliel It sounds like all of you had a good talk in here last night. ✨🚀 ✨( Star Wars). 😁. I hope those who mentioned worrying about what you say in a post will feel more comfortable to just be yourself and post a comment. For the most part, Litsy is a good place to hang out without a lot of problems. @kaylamberson. @Kimberlone 2w
RainyDayReading I‘m in the same boat as you- as far as being self conscious about what I post now. I wasn‘t at first but after seeing the negative stuff on the FB page I‘ve definitely cut back on how much/what I post and I definitely don‘t interact on here as much as I used to. I thought I was the only one feeling this way 😅 2w
Kaylamburson You're not the only one at all, @RainyDayReading ! I have also really cut back on my interactions and participating in questionnaires and such, but I guess at the end of the day, why should I care who wants to follow me. Plenty of people also enjoy those posts. I'm going to try to follow the advice of all the lovely Littens here. Thank you, @quietjenn @Pamwurtzler 2w

1. All the book reviews/purchases/recs and ppl
2. health/movies/memes/etc posts because I come here for mainly books (and I like pet posts)
3. Better way to view someone‘s posts on their profile (endless scrolling...)
4. 5+ a week
5. I don‘t mind most of those
6. I used to love the short character limit but it could expand slightly. Fix the hashtag issue for iOS.

Thanks @ljuliel for creating this and @MrBook for the tag.

ljuliel Thank you for the responses @TheLibrarian I appreciate you taking the time and giving your opinions, as they all count ! 2w
UnidragonFrag Definitely agree with there being some better way of searching profiles. 2w

@ljuliel

1. I love being exposed to so many books I might not be otherwise and interacting with people who love books as much as I do.
2.I like it all
3.The ability to add more than one picture to a post like on Instagram and a larger character allowance. I'm wordy.
4.Almost daily
5.Everything but readalongs b/c they're too slow for my liking.
6.I much prefer the IOS version of the app to Android so I would like the same split activity board.

ljuliel Thank you @xxjenadanxx I liked the way you said this. You‘re WORDY so you need more space for posts. You and me both. I call myself long- winded, but wordy is good too. 2w
ChasingOm Ooh, I like the idea of multiple pictures! 2w
xxjenadanxx @ljuliel well that too! It's so hard to fit a decent review into under 500 characters lol. 2w
xxjenadanxx @ChasingOm it would be so much easier to post end of month wrap ups! 2w

1. Book chat -- a more casual conversational atmosphere than LT.
2. The occasional overwhelming of the timeline by an evolving series of hashtags (love the ability to block a hash tag, but there are some challenges that have different hash tags for every week.....)
3a. I would LOVE a way to jump to the first post for a hash tag! By the time I see a fun looking challenge happening, everyone already knows the rules and I can't find them.

Liz_M 3b. It might also be helpful, if we can jump to the first post, to be able to reverse the direction of scrolling.
4. When the mood strikes, probably less than once a week.
5. I enjoy watching others participate in these; I'll occasionally answer questionaire's if they questions tickle me fancy. Love the #NyrbBookClub discussions.
6. See 3a.

2w
Liz_M 1 Again. I love the book-themed photo challenges, but could never keep up with posting a picture every day. I also love some of the year-long challenges, A-Z classics or a bingo card challenge. 2w
sprainedbrain Love your answers! 2w
Daisey These are some great ideas. I can‘t even count the number of times I‘ve scrolled for a long time trying to find the origin of a hashtag. 2w
batsy Oh yes! 3 would be so helpful. 2w

#LitsyQuestionnaire
1. Except books/bookish things? 😁I‘m grateful that this app is ad and (most of the time) drama free, that this app is dedicated to the readers and easy to use, and I enjoy seeing posts from all around the world from the people who can respect different opinions. 2. I don‘t like ‘hate reading‘ and memes ... but I don‘t see problem in that, I just scroll past those posts that I‘m not interested in. 3. When you search for ... 👇

Simona ... specific book, it would be nice to have the option to look at the reviews only. 4. I think that my average is twice a week. 5. Yes I do. I like seeing what others are reading/doing, and what makes them happy. 6. I don‘t have the answer. We are here because we love books, and we use different ways to express and share that passion in our posts. I‘m guilty of clicking ‘like‘ and I rarely leave comment in others posts. I‘m hardcore introvert 👇 2w
Simona ... even on social media, but my ‘likes‘ always means that I saw and I have read your post. 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego "Likes" are valid too, I agree. 2w
See All 11 Comments
BarbaraBB And your likes are valued 💕 2w
ljuliel Thanks for posting. Nothing wrong with only clicking like if that‘s all you are comfortable doing. There are others that might be more into the social end of it , of dropping comments on posts etc. I thought that might get some of the close atmosphere back that several have noticed is missing. 2w
Hooked_on_books Ad free—excellent point! 2w
sprainedbrain ❤️ 2w
batsy Yes to 3! Especially since we need to tag books for posts unrelated to books so a lot of it isn't about the book, sometimes. And I love your answer for 6. It's true that posting about books and liking and otherwise being quiet gives a lot of pleasure for introverts ❤️ 2w
Simona @batsy Especially for hyped books, to find reviews can be time consuming ... I work in a extremely extrovert environment, so at home I have to recharge and usually I simply can‘t be talkative 🤷‍♀️ 2w
Simona @Hooked_on_books I hope that it stays that way, but I guess - this is the price for the slower app development. 2w

Thanks to @MrBook for the tag and to @ljuliel for the reflection.

1️⃣ The Community, there are so few asshats here! I've had to block like two people since I've been here. It's two a week on other places.
2️⃣ So many things! But nothing about Litsy.
3️⃣ A qualified pick and a not-for-me buttons.
4️⃣ RL is insane right now, so 1 or 2 a day only. I miss it.
5️⃣ Yes to all 4, even if I lack time.
6️⃣ Make the Android app on par with the iOS app.

ljuliel I always like your To The Point Approach. I‘m glad we have less Asshats here 😊. And your answer #2 was very direct. I‘m assuming you‘d like mostly bookish posts ? Thank you for the answers. Always a pleasure. 💕 2w
tournevis @ljuliel I mean in my whole life, there are so many things I dislike. I did not think it was a Litsy only question. I love everything here. And you too. I have very few critiques, save the buttons and the app, which are annoyances rather than dislikes. 2w
ljuliel Oh, ok ! 😂. Sorry, I misunderstood your answer. I‘m glad you‘re content with Litsy. I hope things in your life improve. 2w
MrBook @tournevis Glad Litsy is an oasis for you in the sea of life‘s discomfitures. 🤗 2w
tournevis @MrBook Said so well! Thank you! 😘 2w

#KeepLitsyAlive @ljuliel

1) everything, this is the best community out there
2) can't think of anything, since I can unfollow Littens whose content I don't like
3) switching from writing a "blurb" to "quote" or "review" without having to cancel and restart again ?
4) from not at all to 10 times a day
5) all of it, and photo challenges
6) not sure, participation is key

ljuliel Thank you Jules. It‘s good to hear your opinions. It sounds like you‘re satisfied with every area . I‘m working on trying to find ways to get participation back up. 2w
julesG @ljuliel Yes, I'm actually quite happy. I miss a lot of the old Littens who used to be very active but seem to have dropped out (some of them I still see on Instagram, though). 2w
ljuliel I don‘t have Instagram , so I don‘t know what goes on in there. I‘ve had it before but it seems confusing to me the way it‘s set up. I guess once I got used to it, it‘d be ok. I‘ll just stick around in here. I tend to spend lots of time online already. 😊 (edited) 2w
See All 14 Comments
julesG @ljuliel I'm checking Litsy several times a day, but Instagram only once every few days. I don't like their weird algorithm and I have a hard time connecting with people. Litsy is much more my type of social community. 2w
Megabooks @julesG completely agree with you re: Instagram. I check it often, but only because I‘m bored. If I had to choose, I‘d choose Litsy every time. 2w
jb72 @ljuliel I have Instagram but I really dislike their new algorithms. Nothing is in order. Too many ads. It‘s annoying. I definitely prefer Litsy. 2w
julesG @jb72 @ljuliel @Megabooks Something I truly appreciate about Litsy is it being ad-free. Let's hope it stays this way. Actually, I'd be willing to pay a small yearly fee to keep Litsy ad-free, should push come to shove. And the order of posts is great,too. Sometimes I wish I could scroll the other way, though. Not backwards from most recent to oldest, but rather from last seen post to most recently posted post. 2w
jb72 @julesG @ljuliel I fully agree. I loathe ads (I report ads on FB all the time). IG has gotten out of control with ads. I‘d rather pay a small yearly fee instead of ads. Also it would be nice to scroll from last post seen as sometimes there are a lot of posts I miss going from new to old. 2w
ljuliel @jb72 @julesG @Megabooks Well, it doesn‘t sound like I‘m missing much on Instagram. I only tried it fir a short time and really don‘t like the setup. It‘s easier in here to see what‘s going on, etc. 2w
julesG @ljuliel Facebook and Instagram are crutches I use to stay in contact with a handful of people. Litsy is my home! 2w
LibrarianRyan You can do that changing thing on the desk top. But I would love it on the app! 2w
julesG @LibrarianRyan Ha, didn't know that! Thanks! And yes, it would be great to have it on the app, too. 2w
wanderinglynn @jb72 @julesG IG started sucking when Facebook acquired it and adapted their weird algorithms and stupid ads to IG. I check IG a few times a week. I agree, it‘s not as easy to connect on IG. 2w
Hooked_on_books Oh my gosh, a strong agreement to #3! 2w

Oh @ljuliel really has me thinking this morning. I made up a list of things I want to do to be a better citizen of Litsy (#Litizen?) And with this non-book post I've already failed at one 🤣

Crazeedi Excellent list! I will keep this close and I e tried to follow most of these!! 2w
Rachel.Rencher She got me thinking, too! I can't say I'll stick to books every time, though. I like filling Litsy in on pieces of my life & seeing what goes on with littens, too. 2w
Sace @Crazeedi feel free to tailor them to your wants and needs too! Honestly I wrote most of these thinking about what I wanted when I post something. Then I started reading other's posts and realized I should be a better participant for them too. 2w
See All 30 Comments
Sace @Rachel.Rencher agreed. Gotta have me some #catsoflitsy! I also really love when people share pictures of their reading spots (I call them "reading in the wild" posts.) 2w
Addison_Reads Excellent list. Thank you for sharing. 2w
Sace @Rachel.Rencher I'm so glad she started this conversation! 2w
Bookish.SAM At least this is a very well intentioned fail 🤣 2w
Sace @Bookish.SAM yes... All the best intentions 🤣 2w
ljuliel Thanks. This list is great. I wouldn‘t say it‘s non- book related, as it‘s meant to be a way to breathe new life into Litsy, which just happens to be a book group. So there is a connection ! I‘m not saying we should never post anything else. I like seeing pets ,etc myself. I‘m just trying to even the teeter - totter out a bit and give books a bit more of a platform than they‘ve had for awhile. Great job 👏🏻 2w
MeganAnn Yes, great list!! I‘m going to try doing more of these things myself 2w
Chrissyreadit Looks like a great list! 2w
Sace @ljuliel I feel like I want to exercise caution about "breathing new life." I do think transience is the nature of the internet. Not sure if that can be fixed. I understand the feeling of loss when people leave. There has to be a balance though because so many people are still here. Even I've had to struggle with staying when it started to feel less intimate. It's one reason I unfollow and mute hashtags. 2w
Sace @MeganAnn Litsy is what we make of it. 2w
Sace @Chrissyreadit thank you! 2w
Chrissyreadit @Sace I completely agree with your above comment. Also new people join every day and I‘m excited by eclectic readers. Also I want to be inclusive for everyone. I‘m more interested in the future of Litsy and engaging with LibraryThing more than goodreads. 2w
Sace @Chrissyreadit my off and on involvement with LT colors a lot of how I feel about and interact on Litsy. I started in LT way back in the early 2000s(?), left for a bit and came back. For me it always boils down to reading and books. Games and alongs are secondary to me. (Though a do dabble in them occasionally.) 2w
UnidragonFrag These are great! I really want to try to commit on commenting more. 2w
Sace @UnidragonFrag it's actually a list I started a couple weeks ago when I noticed myself getting annoyed by some things. I decided I wanted to be the change I wanted in the Litsy world 🤣 2w
UnidragonFrag @Sace I feel you! Lately it's been feeling more hashtags and somewhat cliquey, which isn't how I remember when I first joined. Would love for it to go back, at least some! And you're right, we should be the change :) this has been the most interaction I've had on here in a while :) 2w
Sace @UnidragonFrag I try not to get hung up on "cliquey" because I feel like that's a self fulfilling prophecy at times. I know myself well enough to know that I'm just using it as an excuse sometimes. Now if someone legit ignores me I'm like f*ck it, I have my books to be my friends ? 2w
Sace @UnidragonFrag and honestly it feels the same to me. Maybe I'm just clueless. 2w
MrBook Wow! This is a great list!! 😁👍🏻👍🏻 You can tell right off the bat that it‘s substantive with a lot of thought having gone into it. (edited) 2w
Sace @MrBook eh. Maybe not a lot of thought. More like paying attention to how I felt and what I observed when interacting on Litsy. 2w
UnidragonFrag @Sace it definitely can be a self fulfilling prophecy. I can think of a time I did that to myself on here 🤷‍♀️ I'm still figuring crap out and sometimes take things too personal. But it's the internet and who cares, right 😅 2w
Sace @UnidragonFrag I take it you've already been pointed in the direction of @Chelleo 's videos and @RaimeyGallant tips for Litsy? 2w
UnidragonFrag @Sace I meant still figuring things out in general not on here lol I've seen those. @Chelleo and @RaimeyGallant do a great job helping out new folks 😊 2w
Sace @RaimeyGallant @UnidragonFrag I bow before both of you Litsy queens! 🙇‍♀️ 2w

@ljuliel
1. Pretty much everything, but finding out about new and new to me books is at the top of the list.
2. I've tried a few swaps, but I don't think I'm good at them.
3. Nope
4. At least once a day (I've taken some leaves of absence too.)
5. I have enjoyed #friyayintro a lot. @suvata did a Steinbeck readalong that I really enjoyed. I've lurked on #ShakespeareReadalong. Currently doing the #catherbuddyread. I love the #manga hashtag. 👇

Sace 6. I'm pretty happy with the way Litsy is. There are some things that bother me, but they are on me and not really anything Litsy does. I have a love/hate relationship with social media. For the most part Litsy has remained true to its origins. There are some corners that are too social media for me, but overall it's the perfect place for readers IMO. 2w
BarbaraBB Such positive feedback. Good to read 💕 2w
Sace @BarbaraBB I mean, I have some negatives but they are so much based on my bad attitude that I can hardly blame Litsy for them! 🤣 2w

ljuliel Thanks for responding. I‘m glad you‘ve found several read along you‘ve enjoyed. I just did one and it was fun. Very low key, no stress, just read the book. 👍🏼 2w
Sace I've got one for 3. I sort of wish there was a way to prioritize feeds I follow? Like I love posts from @LauraBeth , but I have to actively search her and go to her feed. She rarely shows up on mine 😔 I guess I need to follow fewer people 🤣 2w
Sace @ljuliel those are the best kinds! 2w
ljuliel @Sace ...yea, I recently went through and cleared out my follow list and restarted it. I was missing posts that I wanted to see somehow. I do t know of another way to keep track of a certain person without looking them up. 2w
Sace @ljuliel I'm probably due for another weeding. There's no reason for me to be following thousands. 🙄 2w
ljuliel Yea, it‘s tough to keep track of that many. A lot are also dead accounts. No one has posted for mo this, some, not at all. 2w
Sace @ljuliel I tend to unfollow if it's been a while but I know I was gone for almost a year once so I still feel guilty when I unfollow 😔 2w
Sace So I see there's the #keeplitsyactive hashtag and yeah, the FOMO has kicked in, but I have to say that I don't think Litsy is doomed. It's just changing but not in a bad way. For me there are elements that are starting to feel social media-esque but I still believe it can meet the needs of every Litten. 2w
ljuliel No, it‘s not doomed. It just needs a bit of a jump start. A couple years ago, there were so many new posts per day, I spent hours trying to get through them all. Now there are big gaps. Days when I check in several times and might only see a couple new posts. 2w
Sace @ljuliel ah. I have to laugh because I actually kind of like the slowdown. I am easily overwhelmed and I like when there is more conversation and interaction, something that can be hard when there's so much activity. 2w
LauraBeth @sace 😽😽 2w
Sace And since I'm still thinking.... Once thing I love about Litsy is that I can take crappy pictures and not feel bad 🤣 2w
Sace Aaand another thought. I prefer quality over quantity. A ton of posts with the same group hashtag -along does not interest me as much as someone posting about their slice of reading life that makes me want to interact with them. 2w

1.Everything but especially getting to know people who love reading.
2. I like all of it
3. Able to search a TBR and not start over again when I look at a book link.
4. Daily if not more
5.yes- I‘m an introverted extrovert and this feeds my social needs.
6. I would love to know what people who stopped using litsy thought- but everyone has different needs and views for social media- this is one niche. Also, it took me a year of observing before 👇

Chrissyreadit I jumped in- sometimes connections or activities felt cliquish- But once I jumped in I realized it was not like that. I think commenting when a book interests me has helped me engage with more people more often. 2w
EadieB @Chrissyreadit I like your answers! 2w
BethM We‘re glad to have you! I agree is love searchable lists! 2w
See All 11 Comments
Insightsintobooks Searchable lists would be nice. 2w
Sace I should probably do this. Commenting is very important to me. I try to read all posts carefully and make thoughtful comments when I can (I'm not always successful.) Has there been less participation on Litsy? I had not noticed. Then again, I've really been downsizing who I follow. 2w
Cinfhen Yes to number 3!!!! So frustrating 😠 2w
Bookwormjillk Yes, searchable lists! 2w
ljuliel I agree on #6. I don‘t know why so many loyal posters left. It‘d be nice to have their feedback now. All I can do is ask the ones who are currently members. All your answers might help to sort this out a bit. 2w
Chrissyreadit @Sace I wonder if more people downsized? I think it seems less active this month but i also know scrolling has been rough. 2w
Sace @Chrissyreadit I feel like I live under a rock because I had not noticed less activity. Then again, I tend to keep a smaller number of people I interact with and the people I interact with most are still here so maybe I didn't notice. 2w
sprainedbrain Great answers, Christina! I love your positivity. ❤️ 2w

1- book recommendations hands down. I‘ve read more this year than I ever have in my life because I got more active on Litsy.
2- Not really.
3- I wish there was a way to search only reviews. Sometimes I want to read others thoughts on the book I‘m reading, but they‘re buried in book hauls and things like that.
4- 3-4 times per week
5- Yes to all. Love them, although I had to cut back on swaps.
6- I would like to leave pics in comments

Insightsintobooks I think pictures in comments is a good idea. 2w
CarolynM I totally agree with your answer to no3 2w
Cinfhen Good suggestions 2w
ljuliel #1. Gets a gold star 🌟 from me. I agree. I look for reviews. That‘s how I choose what to read. I like hearing what a person thought of the book they completed. Sadly, the reviews get a very small portion on space at the time. I‘m hoping we can get that changed here shortly. 2w
Bookwormjillk @ljuliel thanks! I don‘t mind the other posts when I‘m scrolling, but would like to exclude them from a search. I‘ve been on a personal drive to review everything I read! 2w

@MrBook @ljuliel

1. Reviews
2. I will unfollow people who tend to post a lot of "spoiler alert" posts and questionnaires.
3. The ability to like comments would be nice!
4. Lately, I've only been posting to review books I've just finished.
5. See comments...

WorldsOkayestStepMom 5. I like the idea of readathons, but not participated because kids. I could take or leave the others.
6. I'd like the option to "see fewer posts like this". So if I follow someone and want to know their reviews, but they also post the spoilers, I'd like Litsy to just filter those out for me. Also having character limits for posts is annoying. It's more understandable for comments.
2w
Insightsintobooks I agree that the ability to like comments would be nice. I also agree about having character limits on posts. 2w

1. Everything but especially the friendships
2. Can't think of anything
3. A search button on our profile pages so if you want to go back to one of your posts you can just search the hashtag/book without having to scroll down.
4. At least once a day.
5. I enjoy almost everything except readathons, I think it encourages competitiveness and I feel bad if I don't do as well as others.
6. See #3! Also the ability to like comments!

@ljuliel

Cinfhen Great ideas 💡 💕🙌🏻 2w
CarolynM I agree with you re no3 2w
ljuliel Thanks Jennifer. Don‘t feel bad about the readathons ! I‘ve tried them a few times and always do lousy. I don‘t feel bad if others beat my total. It‘s all just for fun. I wouldn‘t want to read if it wasn‘t. That‘s why I‘m careful about signing up for restricted type reading events, as it makes me more stressed rather than having fun. 2w

1️⃣ I love to see what everyone is reading, but really enjoy librarians and booksellers latest reads. Thanks. 2️⃣ I‘m not interested in swaps, but that‘s just me. I love to see what you all give and receive. 3️⃣ More meetups! It‘s challenging, but it has to be a blast. 4️⃣ Somedays too much! Most days at least once. Sorry if I over post. 5️⃣ I love the readathons. Great to get some good books in. I like these questions! 6️⃣ lets all set Goals!

1. The community and people
2. I like everything! Even if I can't participate I like seeing others posts about them.
3. I thought of something well I saw it on another post PM would be nice.
4. I used to post daily but life has gotten hectic and so I don't as much but I do try to come on and look at others posts... (I'm going to try to comment more.. )
5. Yes everything!
6. I'm not sure to be honest.

TheBookAddict I also used to post everyday, but as you said, life happens. 🙂 2w
ljuliel Thank you for your answers. I think we all have times where we might just flip through and click the LIKE❤️ button without paying attention to the post. If we all made it a goal to even comment on one per day, we‘d get more interest growing. That‘s something we can all do. I agree, I‘d like a PM feature also. 2w
rwmg I am ambivalent about a PM feature. Personally I would like it, but I can see why some people wouldn't -- that's where a lot of the ugly stuff goes on. 2w
See All 7 Comments
Insightsintobooks @rwmg that is true. I like to think Litsy isn't like that but I suppose one never knows. 2w
Clwojick I agree with enjoying seeing everyone‘s posts, whether or not your participating in the event. I hardly do swaps anymore, but they‘re some of my favourite posts to scroll through. I love seeing all the bookish gifts, and personalized selections. Everyone is always so happy on a swap opening day! 🥰😀 2w
ljuliel Thanks for your reply. I think if you could do the PM thing sorta like Goodreads , but on a different scale so you could choose who is welcome to pm you , but block ones you don‘t know, etc. 2w

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! 2mo

2.) Bookmarks ♡ Book logs ♡ Stationary ♡ Everything ha! ♡

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!!!

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. 😁 5mo

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. 5mo

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.
