Special Friendships: A Novel | Roger Peyrefitte
post image

Favorite books/favorite people.
Community a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. One of the things that I love about LITSY is that it is inclusive all welcoming everyone all the time. IF we ever restricted our post to just books and nothing personal we wouldn‘t be a community it would be a website of book reports. Just my opinion. If you don‘t like someones content, don‘t follow them❤️

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Agreed! We are more than reviews we are a community! And I love our community❣❣ 2w
LibrarianRyan Amen! 2w
See All 34 Comments
Sace Agreed. But I respect those who mainly want reviews. I was mainly attracted to that when I joined in 2017. 2w
Bookwormjillk I agree! But I would love it if I could just search reviews. 2w
Megabooks 👍🏻👍🏻 2w
TheBookHippie @Sace It‘s for everyone. I respect whatever anyone is here for -as long as they don‘t insist others can‘t post how they want. Follow content you like should be the simple solution. It‘s crazy to me anyone would want to restrict types of post. I came in 2016 because books, no drama and kindness. 2w
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk I just click on the book titles and scroll when I want a certain book. It‘d be fun to have a review hashtag to follow that everyone uses. 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yes!!!! I may copy and share this!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 2w
Sace @TheBookHippie are people suggesting that? I hadn't seen that at all. 2w
TheBookHippie @Sace a few -so instead of answering each one my thoughts I posted 🙂 This conversation happens about once a year it seems. (edited) 2w
Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie I do that too, but sometimes there‘s a lot of noise. To be clear I don‘t think we should have restrictions in the general feed. I‘d just like an advanced search option if the team is looking for things to add. 2w
Sace @TheBookHippie and annual event! Does Litsy Happenings know 🤣 2w
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk I‘ve thought that for buddy reads too it‘d be a nice feature for sure. 2w
TheBookHippie @Sace It‘s like someone thinks it‘s a new idea every year? Or it annoys them yet again ? It should be a scheduled talk to be done then carry on ...🤣🤣🤣 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Sace yes, it‘s really disappointing that people can‘t just scroll past things and move on... This is a very loving and caring community with very little negativity! I‘m thankful for the friends I have made here! ❤️ 2w
UnidragonFrag I totally agree! 2w
RachelAmphlett Here and Instagram are my favourite places to hang out with booky people, both as a reader and writer. I always learn something here! 2w
Sace I do agree with @Bookwormjillk that sometimes it does feel noisy. When that happens I take a break or weed my feed. It's partly on me to make my experience positive. Not others. I think we can always use the reminder. That's also what makes the place special. We can talk it out. 2w
Sace @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I simply unfollow when I come across the things that annoy me. 2w
BookwormAHN Agreed, I enjoy seeing different kinds of posts from people. I feel like you get to know everyone a little better and then their book reviews are a little more interesting 😸 2w
Bookzombie I agree! 2w
tournevis Agreed. 2w
Lizpixie I for one, love seeing the different kinds of posts from people living in completely different communities than me. We may all be bookworms but our lives vary so wildly from country to country. I think that if there was an effort to police our posts, it wouldn‘t be as vibrant a community as it is now. I agree there should be a way for people to only see what they want, but the rest of us are happy with the direction we‘re heading. 2w
TheBookHippie @Lizpixie so well said ❤️ 2w
tracey38 I agree! 2w
Daisey Referencing what @Bookwormjillk mentioned, I‘ve sometimes wished I could just filter the types of posts: reviews, quotes, and blurbs. Filtering out blurbs sometimes would probably reduce a lot of the “noise.” 2w
teebe Well said. It‘s a little mind-boggling to me that some people want to basically remove the social aspect of a social media app. (edited) 2w
TheBookHippie @teebe 🤣🤣🤣 you win the best comment and viewpoint !!!! ❤️ 2w

#litsyslove went out today. My regular post office man was there today and he seemed oblivious to the queue forming as he kept me talking for ages - quizzing me about Litsy! He loves you all !

TrishB I get that in my PO too! 5mo

phatsallylee That's hilarious! My post office people always seemed to be annoyed that i hold up the line so i can figure out which fun stamps to purchase! 5mo
Kayla.Adriena I wish mine was friendly! He is intimidating and when I try to send a book by media mail every time without fail he says "is this a published piece of work because if it's something written by you, you can't send it that way " ?‍♀️ 5mo
Kayla.Adriena @phatsallylee me too! I try to look online ahead of time so I know what ones i want ! Sheesh 5mo
Mitch @Kayla.Adriena @phatsallylee Oh no! I have to plan on extra time because I can never just pop in as they keep me talking for ever! 5mo
