#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

Book I just finished enjoying my #partyforone .I found it painful and heartbreaking. But it was also musical and poetic. I could hear her voice in my head. Overall a good memoir.

Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I just realized this counts for a future #booked2019 prompt- indigenous writer- I did not think to look ahead. Is that accurate? 11mo
Cinfhen Yup!!! Excellent!! And it sounds like a good read - thanks for posting & sharing 😊 11mo

Ok. Since I'm in desperate need of some happiness and fun in my life, I've picked the dates for the next #LitsyPartyOfOne
I chose Labor Day Weekend so that we can extend our introverted party an extra day. @MrBook you know what to do lol. Can't wait to spend another wonderful time with my amazing littens. Spread far and wide and tag me for those who are new to this. #HostPost

ItsAngel Yes! How does it work? 👀 2y
janeycanuck Oh sad for me, that weekend is already booked up. I'll just have to do a "Litsy Party of One" Part of One the following weekend. 2y
Tera0707 For those asking, from what I understand, it's a party for your Bookworm-self. Take the time to read, post pics throughout the party of where you're reading, what you're snacking on, etc. It's all in good fun and gives some of us the excuse to sit down and finally read (that's what I tell my family anyway. "It's party time; leave me alone." Lol) 2y
Between_The_Covers This should be fun 2y
