#KeepLitsyActive

1) I love meeting fellow bookworms. I like how I can search for posts related to the book I‘m reading or interested in. I‘ve discovered so many #goodreads because of Litsy! Also love the swaps and penpal groups!
2) Nothing!
3) Would love an Owned TBR and Not Owned TBR.
4) Whenever I have a post I‘d like to share 💕
5) Love all, but haven‘t done a #readalong yet. Not sure how to find them
6) Bit higher character count?

ljuliel Great to hear your answers. I‘m glad you like it here so much. Are you following #litsyhappenings. . ? I believe that might be an area that posts or reposts events such as read alongs. Or check in with @Andrew65 , as he is currently doing at least one read along group. I know there are others that also do them. Another one to check would be @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks , as she also does them, but I‘ve no clue what her schedule is. 3mo
Alora @ljuliel Awesome, thank you so much! I will check them out! 💜📖 Thank you for creating this! 3mo
Clwojick Check out #ListyHappenings @LitsyHappenings ♥️♥️♥️ 3mo

Clwojick I also agree with the higher character count. 3mo
Alora @Clwojick I followed @LitsyHappenings , thank you!! Yes, I think a little bit higher would be great! Especially for book reviews. 3mo
Insightsintobooks I agree with 3! 3mo
Alora @Insightsintobooks It would be so useful for a number of reasons! For personal tbr piles, and for swaps!! I like to keep the books I own and haven‘t read on my tbr, but when I am in a swap I have to remove them 😂 3mo
Butterfinger @MrBook is celebrating his 1,000,000 litsy points this weekend by hosting a readathon. I am really looking forward to it. 3mo
Alora @Butterfinger Me too!! This is my second readathon. Hoping to get a lot more reading in this time! 😃📖 3mo
Butterfinger @alora, I'm sorry. I misread. My brain substituted 'athon' for 'along'. 3mo
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo
Alora @Butterfinger haha thats okay!! Don‘t be sorry 😂😊 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora We always do the #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead starting on 19th of each month choosing a new book each month reading it over 10 - 14 days posting 4 - 5 discussion questions every couple of days. You are more than welcome to join us, jus check the feed of @Andrew65 or the tag above. We have just finished last month‘s but will start the tagged book later this month. We will most probably choose a new author when we finish her books. @ljuliel 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora I always tag in @LitsyHappenings when posting / advertising the buddy reads and they do an awesome job of reposting the reads. @MrBook @Avanders @BookBabe 3mo
Andrew65 @dgrachel and @TheReadingMermaid do buddy reads / read alongs too. They are both great people and well worth following. 😍 @Alora (edited) 3mo
Alora @Andrew65 Thank you so much for the help! I will join you all for the next month! 😊 3mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks #BotmBuddyRead is mine and Christine‘s monthly book club if you want to check it out!! @TheBookHippie 🎊🙌🏻📚 3mo
TheBookHippie Follow our hashtag #BOTMBUDDYREAD we read a book a month and discuss sections every Sunday. POSTED questions are on my page. 3mo
TheReadingMermaid #HOLBuddyRead is my next one. Everyone is welcome. Check the hashtag four times and details 😘 3mo
MrBook @Andrew65 Love ya like a brother from another mother, man! 🤗 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora Be great to have you with us, I forgot to tag the book - I was doing it over breakfast (I live in the U.K.) and was getting a bit late for setting off to work. November‘s book will be Heart and Soul which is one of my all time favourite Maeve Binchy books. I will tag you in when I set up the next Buddy Read. (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 Because of having to get to work I didn‘t finish posting I also very strongly recommend @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @TheBookHippie‘s #BOTMBuddyRead. Misty and Christine are two of the greatest people you could wish to meet and do sensational buddy reads. They split books into four sections and post questions each Sunday. I have read some fabulous books with them just frustrated not joined n much recently due to life happening! 👇 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora With my buddy reads I try to emulate their great work. My commitments also get caught up as I run two Group Reads a month on Librarything - Mystery and Suspense Books and cohost the Monthly #24B4Monday Readathons. (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 I can also very strongly recommend @EadieB @Tove_Reads @gradcat and @Crazeedi , more great people to follow. The five of us read a few books a month together but on a very informal basis with people popping in or out as they want to. This year we have read the Maeve Kerrigan Series by Jane Casey, the Jack Caffery Series by Mo Hayder and the Sean Duffy Series by Adrian McKinty together. Also reading other books together. 👇 (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 In 2020 we are targeting three Nordic authors we want to read together. In simple terms the more you get involved in these things on Litsy as @MrBook says the more you get out of it. And you must follow my ‘brother from another mother‘ MrBook, Jason is the million dollar man at the moment! An all round great guy that we all love 🤗🤓and looking forward to the Readathon in his honour this weekend as part of #PartyForOne. 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora As you can tell I just love Litsy and the people on it. 😍❣️ sorry for filling up your feed! 😳😱🤔😁🤣😔 3mo
Andrew65 @Butterfinger Me too! 😍😍😍 3mo
Alora @Andrew65 Thank you so much for all the awesome info! 😍 I will definitely join a few buddy reads! 3mo
Andrew65 @Alora Yey!!! 😊😍👍😁 3mo
Alora @Andrew65 don‘t be sorry! I love and appreciate all the info! 3mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Andrew65 awww thank you Andrew!! We miss you!!!! 3mo
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Need to get myself organised and back to them as miss them. Not helped that often driving at the time questions posted and feel the fun of it is everyone posting answers at the same time. Need to get over that! 😔 (edited) 3mo
TheBookHippie @Andrew65 AWE thanks we miss your participation and we read an awful book and missed your humour a few months back 🤣🤣❤️ 3mo
Avanders @andrew65 awww we sure do try! 🥰 3mo
Andrew65 @Avanders You do more than try, you achieve and your time is greatly appreciated. ❣️😍 3mo
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Need to get my time sorted and get back involved! One or two books need humour. 😂 3mo

aniket.barik Nikola Tesla and Elon Musk have been constant sources of inspiration for me. These books have been on my TBR for a while now. 2y
Infinity_finite @aniket.barik hahaha! Awesome! I hope you get around to them because they definitely give insight into the lives of these great thinkers, visionaries, etc. Not going to lie, I cried whilst I read these. Also, I don‘t really have patience to sit and read a whole unless it captivates me THAT much. ✨ highly recommend! 💡 2y
aniket.barik I'll read them as soon as I can! 2y
iamChandra One of finest book written on Elon Musk apart from some controversy which Elon Musk himself opposed on twitter. 2y
Infinity_finite @iamdarthvader I know right!? And lol what was the controversy he opposed ? 👩🏻‍💻 2y
iamChandra @Infinity_finite In this book there is written that Elon Musk once scolded an employee for skipping a work event to witness the birth of his child. But Elon Musk denied this fact on twitter and requested the author to remove that part. 2y

euphemy @Chelleo I really enjoyed the graphic novel. It's around 400 pages long but goes quick. Thank you for the recommendations to follow! ☺ 2y
euphemy @GirlMeetsBook It's a quick, cute read. 2y
Chelleo @GirlMeetsBook Uhhh... I just read tinder the first time ever last week...you‘re good! 2y
GirlMeetsBook @Chelleo I only know of Tinder the dating app. 😂😂 2y
Chelleo @GirlMeetsBook LMAO! Sorry. Stupid phone! I meant I just read Wrinkle in Time!! 😂🤣😂 2y
Chelleo @euphemy I‘m going to check it out. Would love to see the visuals. The movie‘s visual seem to take a lot of creative license. 2y
euphemy @Chelleo LOL I was wondering what the tinder was! I haven't seen the movie yet but really want to. It looks really good. 2y

Pamwurtzler Thanks @Jess7 ! Welcome @euphemy ! 2y
tournevis @euphemy Your getting great advice here! I would add on tip to @RaimeyGallant 's tips post. On Android, there is an even easier trick to get quiz and games pics for other Littens' posts. If you install Firefox, you can click the share arrow at the botton of a given post and open in Firefox. The letter app will allow you to press and save the pic to your camera roll, at which point you'll can use it like any other pic in you oen post. 2y
tournevis @euphemy Sorry for the typos; my son is all over me as I type. 2y
RaimeyGallant @tournevis Hi! Can you explain this to me with a little more detail so I can add it to the post? 2y
tournevis @RaimeyGallant Ok. I don't know if that's actually meant to work, but it does. If you have Firefox installed, the trick is that when you want to save a picture from someone post, click the share arrow and choose open in Firefox. The post will open in Firefox! In Firefox, long press the image and chose "save to device" (or words to that effect). Then the picwill be in your camera roll and usable like any other pic. 2y
RaimeyGallant @tournevis Thanks! I'm going to mull this over, because I have to figure out if that's actually less steps. Isn't it less steps to screenshot the image, which means it automatically saves to your camera roll, and then it's just a matter of cropping it in Litsy? Maybe it's the same amount of steps? It would be a nice added feature to have an option to save the cropped photo from Litsy without having to recrop. I wonder if anyone brought that up... 2y
RaimeyGallant @tournevis ...in the facebook group. 2y
tournevis @RaimeyGallant With this method, there is no recrop necessary. 2y
euphemy Thanks @Jess7 and @tournevis for the advice! Much appreciated! 2y
RaimeyGallant @tournevis Cool. That was my understanding. Trying to mull over if it's less steps. It's hard for me to tell because I'm on iphone. I'm happy to add it to the marathon Litsy tips post if it is less steps, but I'm wary if it isn't because that post is already pretty long. :) 2y
tournevis @RaimeyGallant It's not long. It's comprehensive. 2y
RaimeyGallant Sorry for taking over your comments @euphemy! :) @julesg, do you know how many steps what @tournevis is talking about takes so we can figure out if I should add it to the Litsy tips post? Less steps than the method I mention above, same amount or more? 2y
julesG @RaimeyGallant @tournevis - It is probably the way to go if your phone gives you trouble with screenshots, like strange buttons to press, broken buttons, etc. I think a screenshot is easier, less steps: screenshot, cropping of the image in Litsy. Whereas the other method means: share, open in Firefox, safe image, inserting/cropping in Litsy. On that note, my phone makes a screen if I swipe downwards with three fingers on the screen. 👇👇👇👇 2y
julesG Pretty simple. Some phones offer really neat features. It is worth checking the manual or to Google to find them. 2y
julesG Welcome to Litsy! 2y
RaimeyGallant @julesG Thanks! You're the best, as always. :) 2y
tournevis @julesG You just reminded me that my phone has that feature and I hadn't enabled it. Thx! 2y
BookaholicNatty Welcome @euphemy So glad you have joined this awesome community of book lovers!!! New book friends are the best!!! ❤️📚❤️ #LitsyWelcomeWagon (edited) 2y
BookaholicNatty Oh I just noticed that one of the right was a graphic novel of A Wrinkle in Time!!! That‘s ahhhhhmazimg!!!!! 2y
euphemy Thank you @julesG and it's 👌 @RaimeyGallant I'm trying to learn from this. I had a nice picture of the 2 books to post but Litsy cuts it off like Instagram. Is there a way to prevent this? I take closeups of my books so they don't need to be cropped but instead get cut off by the app. 2y
euphemy Thank you @BookaholicNatty and yes the graphic is pretty 😎 . I had borrowed it from the library. 2y
RaimeyGallant Does your phone have the ability to take square pictures? It's an option on iphone. Then there's no cropping required. Otherwise, I frame wide when taking a shot and then crop. (edited) 2y
euphemy @RaimeyGallant Not that I know of. I have a Droid phone. I will have to try the wide framing. Thank you! 2y
