#Todayscalendarpage was the perfect way to start my month so I couldn‘t resist sharing. Happy May, Littens! And am I the only one wondering how we got here?!? Where did the last 4 months go?🫠

dabbe Didn't we just have #Scarathlon? 🤩🤗😂 3w
PurpleyPumpkin @dabbe Right?!? Time is flying by… 3w

Another month gone. Wasn't it just #Scarathlon? 😂

Read4life Right? My nieces were just complaining that summer vacation will never get here. I was like “you JUST HAD summer vacation!” 😆 3w

I had read the first chapter back during #scarathlon, then was distracted by other reads, but I finally finished, and it is very much a classic. A slow burn Gothic horror with tons of atmosphere and dread.

Bookwomble I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I've stalled about ⅓ in. I've not given up, but it's not fully drawn me in. 2mo
FlowerFairy Have been reading this one off and on for a couple of months. Keep getting distracted by other books. 2mo
dabbe One of my top five faves of all time! 🤩 2mo

rretzler I haven‘t read it for many, many years but have read it several times. A great book! 2mo
SpellboundReader This is the #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade book for April should anyone want the extra encouragement to finish it. 2mo
rubyslippersreads One of my very favorite books! 2mo
TieDyeDude @bookwomble @flowerfairy I hadn't read any “classic“ literature in a while, so it took a while for me to adjust to the long descriptions of meals, social calls, etc. The first third is completely different from the rest of the book. Definitely a slow-burn read. It took me a couple weeks to read the first 2/3, then two night to read the rest 😅 2mo
Bookwomble @FlowerFairy That's been my process with it, too 😏 2mo
Bookwomble @BeeCurious I'd like to finish it before March is out, but may join in if not 😊 2mo

1. I think Anne Elliot is my favorite, but I also love Lizzy and Elinor.
2. I can‘t decide. It‘s obviously one of Jane Austen‘s characters, but I love them all. Okay not all, but Mr. Darcy, Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth, Edward Ferras, Colonel Brandon - they all share 1. place 😬
3. Little women. I really like it, but I have to admit it‘s going slooow 🙈
Thanks for the tag @BeeCurious 😊
#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

SpellboundReader Great answers! It is really difficult to decide on just one favorite character.
Even if you finish Little Women before June/July, I hope you'll consider following along with the chapter-a-day buddy read via #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade.
Little Women will be a reread for me but I always learn something new from other reader's perspectives and comments. 🙂
SpellboundReader If you are looking for people to follow on Litsy, you could try looking up the books you like (such as Little Women or Persuasion) and then follow the readers who posted reviews for that book. Someone made that suggestion to me when I joined. 🙂📚 3mo
Eggs Thanks for playing🩵🩵 3mo

Eggs @BeeCurious Great suggestion❣️ 3mo
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious thanks for the suggestion! I tried to do that with a few lesser known books I read recently but most of them aren‘t even listed here 🙈 3mo
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious can you explain the # to me? I still don‘t really get how it works here 😬 3mo
funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious and one other thing - do you know why this post was once posted with and another time without a picture? 🤔 3mo
SpellboundReader @funkelbunt.liest - As this recommendation was kindly made to me upon joining Litsy, I'd also suggest referring to a few helpful Litsy 'how-to' websites and videos that were created by the awesome @Chelleo and, @Chrissiereadit among others. 🙂 They really help new members figure out how Litsy works, which is a bit overwhelming at first. (There are more buddy reads now than listed but you'll get the idea.) Links to 'how-to' in a message below.

SpellboundReader The # hashtags are often used to tag or indicate buddy reads or groups on Litsy, that way you can follow a buddy read you are interested by looking up the hashtags. For example if you are interested in seeing everyone's posts related to #hashtagbrigade , then just look it up using the search function. Hashtags are also used to describe book genres, readathons & holiday team competitions like #scarathlon in October. You can make up hashtags too! 😁 3mo
SpellboundReader Litsy Welcome Wagon tips:

For additional groups, buddy reads, readathons, etc that aren't listed, I'd suggest looking through the old LitsyEvents posts and following them, which I think you already did. 👏

Litsy How-to videos on YouTube:

SpellboundReader As for why you post was listed 2x, once without the photo, I'm not sure. I've had a glitch with it taking an exorbitant amount of time to post, & I think it didn't work. Then I try again, and it ends up posting 2x times. For a double post, you could always go back and delete one of the posts. I'm not sure if you are using the app or the web version. For the web version, just tap the 3 dots ... in the lower right corner. Tap delete. Then tap 'ok'. 3mo
SpellboundReader I didn't mean to write a book here, but I hope this info helps. 😁

Everyone is nice here so if you have a question about someone's specific buddy read or readathon or hashtag, etc, then feel free to ask in the comments below their posts, too.

Thank you to @BethM and @tpixie for originally making some of the suggestions listed in comments above, to me.

funkelbunt.liest @BeeCurious thank you so much for all these information! I‘m really slow at typing so I especially appreciate your time! 3mo
SpellboundReader @funkelbunt.liest - I'm happy to help. 🙂🙂🙂 3mo

I was a little down & out this past week (recovering still but much better today) so I was slow to open & post about this wonderful box when it arrived last week from @TheSpineView for winning her #Spookoween Bingo drawing for #Scarathlon

Lisa, Thank you so much!!! 🤗 I was expecting just the book (which came just at the right time as I wasn‘t finished with my library copy & had to return it Saturday). I am blown away by the additional B&N ⬇️

DebinHawaii …gift card, cute tote bag, yummy candle, mushroom note pad, adorable bookmarks & tabs & of course chocolate.🍫🍫You WAY over did it & it was a treat to open on Saturday when I was starting to feel somewhat human again. I truly appreciate it & you! 💙💙💙 4mo

I am posting one book per day from my extensive, and ever growing, TBR shelves. Some are new and some are old, some were gifts, and some I don't remember why I bought them.

Anyone else suffering from #WinterGames hangover?

AnnR Yep, a little. I'm partially sad and partially relieved not to keep score now. 5mo
dabbe I'm still hung over from #Scarathlon. 🤩😂😍 5mo
TieDyeDude Winter Games looked like fun, but no way I was doing that so soon after scarathlon 5mo

AmandaBlaze @AnnR I had to stop myself from using my tally clicker. No more Word Search. Now to concentrate on #WickedWords. 5mo
AmandaBlaze @dabbe @TieDyeDude I definitely started to lose steam at the end. Maybe next year will be a solo Scarathlon. 5mo
bthegood OMG - this is perfect 🤣 5mo

emz711 How do we get involved in the next one? 5mo
kwmg40 @emz77 Usually, there are big month-long events for October (#scarathlon) and December (#wintergames). I recommend following @LitsyEvents, as most events are announced there, with sign-up information provided. 5mo

Hey #TeamReindeerGamers these are my points for the last two weeks.. 27,111 It's was great to have seen your posts and I can't believe how fast the #WinterGames went. Please tag me with your points.

TorieStorieS I think I only ended up with 417 points by my count! 5mo
LiseWorks @TorieStorieS thank you for playing 5mo
aperfectmjk Well 2023 went out with a bang for me, I ended up with Covid, so I'm so behind. I didn't get to complete as much reading as I wanted, but I did manage to snag some points with the Scramble game. I'm going to try to update what I can, I may have to just sacrifice some points, such as some of the bingos and readathons because it's too much to go back and calculate now. 5mo
LiseWorks Oh dear, hope you feel better, do what you can 5mo
aperfectmjk @LiseWorks I almost forgot to send you my numbers. I didn't get everything calculated, but I'm turning in 82,632. 5mo
aperfectmjk @LiseWorks that's for the second half, grand total is 115,496. 5mo
LiseWorks Thanks, @aperfectmjk that is great amount of points for someone who was sick. The totals have been calculated though, I think it's too late to add them. 5mo
aperfectmjk @Liseworks... awww... I'm so sorry. 2023 was a crap year for me. I'm glad it's over. 5mo
LiseWorks @aperfectmjk I want you in my team for #scarathlon next year. Ask for it lol 5mo

I think most of them were read during #scarathlon and #wintergames

I react very positively to points gathering 😅

19 of them were from #roll100 and I'm hoping to actually get some more physical books read this year

Ruthiella Awesome! 👏👏👏 5mo
BookishMadHatter Way to go 👌 5mo
