My #favoritebookishitem (s) are pictured above. I‘m so excited about this authentic Fraser plaid scarf! It was gifted to me today by Barb, one of my most loyal and awesome #bookstore patrons. She went on an Outlander tour in Oct and brought me back the scarf! Readers are the best kind of people! #Gratefulreads. The next time I read/watch anything Outlander I‘ll be sporting my scarf! ❤️❣️❤️📖 @Woodchuc67 @SquidgetsRoom

My #favoritebookishitem would have to be bookmarks. These are part of my work collection and I have a whole box at home full of others! #GratefulReads

Nute These are the type of bookmarks that I like more than the purchased bookmarks from a store. I like bookmarks from a book event, a book promotion, from different libraries, from indie bookstores and the ones that accompany orders from Book Depository...oh, and definitely homemade bookmarks. They feel EXTRA special. Congrats on your collection...very nice! 1mo
OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 1mo

PurpleyPumpkin @Nute Agreed! While I have my fair share of store-bought bookmarks, I love the ones that are slightly more unique. And they are something that I collect that I use all the time! 😉 1mo
UwannaPublishme Cool collection! I‘m always on the hunt for unique and vintage bookmarks. 😊👍🏻 1mo
PurpleyPumpkin @UwannaPublishme You and me both! My thanks to you for sending a couple of my favs these days. I‘m using the Wonder Woman one right now. 👍🏽😉 1mo

I love all of my mugs, shirts, totes, and this special bracelet and necklace from Sher 💞 It reads “I am a better me because of you” on the front and on the back “The story of friendship is written on the pages of the heart.” I wear them everyday 💗 I know there have been many posts “only” wanting book related posts to be on Litsy. If you take away the personal involvement and friendships we have grown it will be a sad day. 👇🏻

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks If people ONLY want book reviews there‘s always Goodreads and other platforms. I love the many friends I have made through Litsy and I‘m grateful for each and every one of you! ❤️ (edited) 1mo
wanderinglynn I agree whole heartedly with you. ❤️ There are other book-only platforms, Goodreads and Library Thing spring to mind. I love the community here and getting to know everyone in a more personal level. 1mo

OriginalCyn620 Agreed! 🙌🏻 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @wanderinglynn thank you!! I‘m saddened by the some of the negativity I‘ve seen, but I think it will pass!! I think all of our core group knows what Litsy is about and will continue to spread the love 💗💗💗 1mo
Megabooks I feel completely the same!! If you don‘t like a personal post, keep scrolling. I talk about books, too. 💙 you Misty! 1mo
Jas16 💜💜💜 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Megabooks 💗 love you Meg!!! 💞💞💞 (edited) 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Jas16 💗 you sweet friend 1mo
Eggs Oh my sweet friends, I agree! Books bring us closer together, and the best things about Litsy are the relationships. No negative influence can take that away from us!! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Megabooks @wanderinglynn @Jas16 @OriginalCyn620 1mo
wanderinglynn I personally haven‘t seen a decline in participation, so I‘m not sure what spurred this whole conversation. Oh, I know some may have dropped off, but that‘s normal. Some leave, but some join. Things change, evolve. Personally, I love Litsy because of the people and I love that everyone shares their life and love of books. 💜 1mo
Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Misty, you know I really meant what the necklace says: I‘m a better me because of you❤️💗❤️ 1mo
Prairiegirl_reading Why is it that people find it difficult to scroll past what they aren‘t interested in? Let people do what they want with social media! Unless it spreads hate it‘s all good. We are all different and that‘s what makes life interesting. It‘s what makes reading interesting. 1mo
QuietlyLaura I totally agree with all of you! The understanding and empathy from fellow readers warms my heart. ❤️ 1mo
JacqMac I agree so much!! I love the community we have built. I like the personal touches. When I‘m having a bad day, I know my Litsy friends will be here, with kindness and cats and babies and nature and lunch and all the books. This is my happy place. 1mo
Megabooks @Eggs So very, very true!! @wanderinglynn I think it was more active 3 years ago, but it‘s been the same for about the last year. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m enjoying Litsy. I want others to enjoy Litsy. But as far as fluctuations in activity, that happens all over the Internet! 1mo
wanderinglynn @Megabooks 👍🏻 well, it was new and different 3 years ago which probably made the difference. But like you, I‘m enjoying it. 😀 1mo
Bklover I agree!!! 💗💗💗💗 1mo
Avanders 🥰🥰 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs and I am because of you 💗💗💗💗 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs I‘m coming to Pville someday soon!! I‘m saving my $$$ 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks @TimSpalding for this awesome, loving community you and others allow us to be a part of everyday!!! 📚☺️ 1mo
MicheleinPhilly @wanderinglynn THIS. I‘ve been biting my tongue for days now. 🙄 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @MicheleinPhilly me too!!! I just had to make a positive comment because all of you are positive influences in my life and make me smile everyday!!! ❤️😘 1mo
wanderinglynn @MicheleinPhilly Exactly. But we shall keep on being our awesome selves and making Litsy the wonderful community it is and ignore the haters. 💜 1mo
TheAromaofBooks I agree. I have only been here since May, but I love the warm and welcoming atmosphere here. I enjoy reading about random life and sharing some of mine, and love seeing posts about letters and books being exchanged between members. Books are our initial common ground, but the friendships are what make being here worthwhile. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @wanderinglynn yes!!!! They can scroll on or delete us 🤷🏼‍♀️ no one is stealing our happiness 🌞🥳🥰 1mo
MicheleinPhilly Back atcha toots! 😘 1mo
TheBookHippie @Prairiegirl_reading 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 1mo
TheBookHippie @MicheleinPhilly 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 1mo
TheBookHippie @JacqMac I agree! 1mo
TheSpineView 💝I am in total agreement with everyone. The vast majority of posts are book related. I would guess 98% or better. If a topic is not for you just keep scrolling. The friendships I have developed is what keeps me coming back day after day. Love this community and all you Littens! 💝 1mo
LauraBeth The friendships I‘ve made on Litsy will be lifelong. I think we have all bonded together over books but Litsy has also allowed us to bond over other things as well. I‘ll never forget the community and support from Littens when my mom died. ❤️ I feel like a lot of us have gone through some big life events together. When people let you in their life like that - it‘s special. There is nothing wrong with Litsy as far as I‘m concerned. 1mo
Eggs It all started with someone wanting to ‘keep Litsy active‘...aren‘t we already active? Why create discord where there is none? Is there a subtext hiding in there? Do what you like and like what you do @LauraBeth @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheSpineView @MicheleinPhilly @TheBookHippie @TheAromaofBooks @Prairiegirl_reading Love you all 💗💗 1mo
TheBookHippie @Eggs I wholeheartedly agree ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
TheSpineView @Eggs Perfectly said!😍 1mo
MicheleinPhilly @Eggs Right??? I see dozens if not hundreds of posts a day. It‘s all so silly. I‘m just gonna keep being me and having fun here and talking to my friends. No need for drama. It‘s a social media app, not a soap opera. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @LauraBeth I echo your comments!! I had tremendous support when I went through a rough divorce and I will forever be grateful ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @MicheleinPhilly and you are awesome!!! 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs yes!! I agree!! I don‘t understand creating negativity when we are in our safe, drama free zone with all of our loving friends ❤️ 1mo

My #favoritebookishitem would either be my Dr. Seuss quilt handquilted by my mom or my Donatello Pop bookmark my niece got me years ago. 😍

I also included my next read for #NFNov since it matched so perfectly with my quilt. @rsteve388 @Clwojick
