My semi-tentative January #TBR Right now the top 2.5 rows are pretty solid because of #buddyreads #readalongs & challenges, a book tour & my virtual foodie book club pick. I am a moody reader so the rest is up subject to change.

Looking to read along with #SundayBuddyRead #ALSpine #AuldLangSpine #PemberLittens #DiverseCozy & #SeriesLove2023 so far in January

Andrew65 Looks like it will be a great month! Good luck and enjoy. 4w
TheSpineView Looks like January will be a great month! 4w
TheBookHippie Yay!! 4w
TheSpineView As a mood reader myself, I understand changes! 3w

I had hoped to finish A Long Petal of the Sea, but I finished only The Personal Librarian. I started A Rule Against Murder this afternoon at brunch. I had thought I had lost my copy and ordered another one, but when I go to pick up my mom's gift on Tuesday or Wednesday, I will have to get a refund for the new copy. Two of the upcoming reads are #readalongs, one is a readalong that I should have started earlier this month, ⬇️

melissajayne 3 are #roll100 selections, and the last 2 are just in case reads. I may add one other book, depending if the audiobook becomes available to me this week. Happy reading all. #bookreport #weeklyforecast (edited) 2mo
mcctrish I‘m trying to decide what to read next and I have “ A Rule Against Murder” in my pile 2mo

#BookMail Just got this one in so I am ready for the #PemberLittens #readalongs starting in May. I‘ll be reading the hard copy of this one, use Serial Reader for Lady Susan, & I secured a library e-book for The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Now let‘s see if I can keep up! 📚📚📚🤷🏻‍♀️📚📚

sprainedbrain You are so ready!! 9mo
jenniferw88 I think you've spent well on the Worsley - it's my favourite biography of Jane's (& I've read a few 😂)! @sprainedbrain 9mo
KristiAhlers That‘s awesome. I‘ve got Lady Susan saved for the read and my copy of Jane Austen at home was delivered last week! 9mo

I am so very bad at #ChapterADay #ReadALongs, especially when I. have to borrow the book. Anyway finished this one yesterday. I enjoyed it. I was thinking it would be a “so so“ because I felt so sad for Mary the whole time! And so mad at her momma!

Continue to look forward to the #PemberLittens discussions though :) @StayCurious

Third in The Hollows series, I‘m still enjoying Rachel & team & still yelling at her for her decisions!😉I worked it in because while not Christmasy, it takes place in December & Solstice. Since I was less than halfway through, I just counted my hours ( 4.12 hrs Beanstack) from 12/1 on. I counted only half the points for the #WGWordsearch using my Kindle & still got 1120 points for #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers Tagging all the #readalongs ⬇️

• Getting ready to jump into the #Narniareadalong. I've been meaning to return to this one for some time now. I've got the reading schedule so if time allows, I'll indulge. Picking up where I left off (hopefully!!) •

The awesome @ljuliel has made a post today listing all the #readalongs she‘s been able to find so far! Since things get scattered on here, she came up with the #Readalongs2020 hashtag for readalong organizers to use to help in the search process. 😊👍🏻👍🏻

ljuliel Thank you, young man. 👍🏼Your assistance is greatly appreciated. 3y

Phenomenal questionnaire composed by the always tremendous @ljuliel ! (Please repost and share! 😊)

1. Can‘t think of anything I don‘t like about Litsy!
2. Interested in it all because I‘m always curious to see and hear what the world‘s best bibliophiles are all about!
3. I‘d have to think about this.
4. Fluctuates between several and a lot. 😆🙈
5. I‘ve only not participated in #readalongs since I have a bunch of bookclubs on my plate.
6. 👇🏻

MrBook 6. 15 minutes a day. That‘s all it takes. Spread the love. You know that our #LitsyFamily is like no other group of book lovers on the planet. 15 minutes for the best group of folks that share your passion that much of the rest of the world dismisses? Oh yeah. 😎🙌🏻🤗 3y
Clwojick @MrBook What a great answer to number 6! You're a gem 💝 3y
TheBookAddict @MrBook 💕💕💕 I agree, we all spend way more than 15 minutes staring at our phones, so why not just dedicate 15 minutes of everyday to Litsy? 🙂👍🏽 we can make this happen for our Litsy Family! 💕💕💕 3y

ljuliel Thanks for the answers, and for tagging that truckload of people. I believe all this place needs is a bit of CPR or maybe a slight ZAP with the defibrillator and we can get some more interest and participation again. ⚡️ 🔥 ⚡️ 3y
ljuliel Maybe if each of us tries to pick at LEAST one post a day and stop to ask a question or make a comment, rather than click the LIKE❤️ and keep moving ? We can do this, folks. (edited) 3y
Clwojick @ljuliel For sure! Like we said earlier. The communication isn't quite like it was a short 2 years ago. Spark up a conversation! You never know what similarities you have with the wonderful people on this platform. 3y
IamIamIam ❤ I'm absolutely guilty of using Litsy like Instagram lately! I don't engage enough but I'll definitely start trying to comment more! I love this community and the people I've found on here! 3y
Rachel.Rencher @Clwojick This is so true! I remember a couple years ago, posts would have 20+ comments with people talking back and forth. I miss that! 3y
Rachel.Rencher Love your answers @MrBook ! Although, I have to admit, I spend far more than 15 minutes a day on this app... 🙊 3y
Clwojick 😍@Rachel.Rencher I definitely spend HOURS on this app some days! 😂 3y
Texreader Spread the love! That‘s so right! I ❤️ Litsy and my fellow Littens. Thanks @mrbook for all you do to make Litsy fun and inviting!! 3y
kspenmoll @MrBook I love this community! I will try 15 minutes daily- always on more on weekends- thanks for all you do to keep us involved!❤️ 3y
Cinfhen Thanks for the tag, Jason!! As Litsy grows it‘s harder to keep the space “intimate” and I definitely miss that although I still find plenty of pockets of conversations amongst Littens. 3y
Alora Thank you for the tag ! I reposted 😊📖 3y
Eggs Thanks for the tag Jason, Monsieur Le Livre 📚❣️❣️ 3y
Insightsintobooks Thanks for the tag. 3y
kgriffith @MrBook, could you tag additional people in comments instead of editing the post? I‘m getting notifications with every edit, and presumably others are, as well. I know this was on my radar but it might be worth bringing to the team‘s attention in case it‘s slipped through the cracks. 3y
Caffeinated_Reader Thanks for the tag 📚 I love litsy and this community 💜 3y
MrBook @kgriffith Sorry about that 🙈. Don‘t worry, my brain and fingers hurt now 😆. 3y
CSeydel Thanks for the tag! I know I‘ve been MIA from Litsy for the last months or so. And I miss it! I‘ll repost this with my answers shortly 3y
catsuit_mango Thanks for the tag, I fell seen as someone famous on Litsy tagged me ;). Will repost 3y
Andrew65 Thanks for thectag, and I agree about devoting that time each day and regularly commenting on different people‘s posts. Like @Rachel.Rencher I know I spend a LOT more than 15 minutes most days and hours during the #24B4Monday Readathon. (edited) 3y
BookwormAHN Thanks for the tag. I know I spend loads of time liking posts but I will try to comment more 😺 3y
kezzlou85 Thanks for the tag. I will repost and try to comment more. I'm guilty of just liking posts. 3y
EadieB Thanks for the post and tag! I will definitely try harder at commenting and interacting with others! (edited) 3y
Velvetfur Thank you for the tag - and the reminder!! I know I used to be very active on here, it's still the social media thingy I use most often (I'm not a glued-to-my-phone person) but I haven't had as much time to be as active lately after my move up North and the crazy busy job. But work has calmed down a bit now so I'll have more time to be on here - thanks again for the nudge! I love my Litsy family 💜 3y
SilversReviews Thanks for the tag. I‘ll answer and repost. LOVE Litsy!! 3y
Marilyncjackson Thanks for the tag but I haven‘t been on Litsy in like three weeks. I am debating about deleting the app. It was really fun when I first started and most of the posts were about books or book related. People would sometimes post things about people who got them into reading and stuff; however, there are way to many posts about other things and so much drama this is turning into Facebook. I already have FB so why spend time on both apps. 3y
Marilyncjackson Also, I can‘t stand when people bag on a book for a typo or for “poor grammar.” Language is fluid and the rules of grammar change (shocking but true). And the negativity that people put out there about ebooks vs “real” books. I want a positive community where one might mention an Indy book has a few typos but continue with a more in-depth review of the story. These are the reasons I am not on here anymore. 3y
FantasyChick Thanks for the tag! I agree with 15 mins per day, though some days I spend hours and other days I'm not on here at all. I've been trying to get more involved again and the readathon and games really help get me motivated! 3y
Crazeedi @MrBook @ljuliel I try to comment on as many posts as I can. Thanks for tag, I'm going to post my answers soon, I've been pondering. I love this app, I've given up FB because of the negative people. I really havent seen much of that here at all! 3y
tournevis 😘 3y
ljuliel @Marilyncjackson Thanks for your comments. Believe me, I get where you‘re coming from. The last thing I want or need is drama.Litsy used to be a sort of Vacation Spot to me. I could come in here and it‘d keep my mind off unpleasant things but it‘s lost a bit of sparkle ❇️. It sounds like you‘re frustrated. Could you give it another couple of weeks or so ? I‘ll try to ask bookish questions within the group and see if we can get this turned a bit (edited) 3y
Marilyncjackson @ljuliel thanks for your comment. I will wait until December at least. I want to give things time to sort themselves out. 😊 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the tag @MrBook — this set of questions sure has started an interesting conversation! 3y
TheSpineView Thanks for the tag @MrBook I will think on these questions and repost. 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks for the tag 🙌🏻💛 3y
TsundokuAleax Fun and thank you. Real life has gotten busy recently so I tend not to be as regular on here. That being said, expect a book dump once I get some pictures in order. 3y
Lynnsoprano @Clwojick @Rachel.Rencher I also miss the the back and forth. I think my problem is that I follow so many people and end up missing the posts from people I‘ve come to consider friends over the past three years. I‘m trying to make an effort to search out a few of those people every day, and not necessarily the same ones, and respond to their posts. 3y
DrexEdit Thanks for the tag @MrBook! I'm glad I didn't miss this post and will repost with my thoughts later today. 3y
Centique @Lynnsoprano I think you‘ve hit the nail on the head there - for me anyway 😊. I have to go look up twenty or thirty people a day and see if they‘ve posted. A favourites list - which is what I use on twitter - would make it easier to see those posts and interact with them. Even better if I could get alerted to other people‘s posts my favourites have commented on - would encourage longer convos in the comments. 3y
MrBook @Marilyncjackson Oh nooo, I know there are plenty of us who don‘t want to see you go, and that sucks you‘ve seen some negativity 😕. That‘s why I went ahead and tagged so many thoughtful Littens (sorry for all the notifications 🙈), and I would have tagged many more for further input but my brain was saying enough of the mental file sifting last night; hopefully, things come back around for you on here after this. (edited) 3y
Lynnsoprano @Centique I‘ve often wished for a favorites list, too. The idea of seeing what other posts favorites have commented on is spectacular. I love the long convos! 3y
CaseyLea Ahh...love this, thanks! Such a welcoming community 😊 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Thanks for tagging me, but I‘m all questionnaired out. Lol it begins to feel like surveys and paperwork to me. But I can say I love Litsy just the way it is! I think it‘s the time of year and people are just very busy right now getting together Irl 🖖🏽 (edited) 3y
Kaylamburson How did you even tag that many people in your post without going over your character limit??? Lol 3y
Pamwurtzler Thanks for the tag! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Agree with the favorites list idea! I‘m getting a little exhausted/overwhelmed with all the non-book posts. One thing I love about Litsy is discovering books I would never have learned about, and Im having to hunt for actual reviews lately. The best thing, though, is all the friends I‘ve made (sappy, but true)! 3y
