My favorite weekend past time...a good book and exploring goodreads! I‘m still looking for ways to get more active and find friends on Litsy! Any suggestions are welcome! I am also looking for more goodreads friends! Happy Reading!

Beatlefan129 I suggest posting often, especially things like #FriyayIntro are a great way to introduce yourself and meet new people on Litsy 2d
LauraBeth Oohh - I love helping people gain Litsy followers! Are you following the account LitsyHappenings? There you‘ll find all sorts of things that you can participate in - photo challenges, buddy reads, etc. Take a look at my last few posts and note the people who liked them. These people are some of the most active on Litsy. Give them a follow. As @Beatlefan129 mentioned, try and post often and engage others with comments. Hope this helps! 2d

PageTurner789 Thank you for the tips! I try to post but i feel like it takes me forever to read lately and how many pictures of one book can I post lol... 2d
Sace A lot. You can post a lot of pictures of one book. Ask me how I know 🤣 2d
LauraBeth Try and do a photo challenge (the ones for November should be listed in LitsyHappenings). That way you‘re prompted to discuss books, but not necessarily what you‘re reading. And you don‘t have to do it every day. 2d
PageTurner789 @Sace lol how do you know?
2d
LauraBeth @Sace 😹😹 Same. I‘m a slow reader also. 2d
Sace @PageTurner789 becasue that's exactly how I Litsy (Litsy is a proper noun and a verb.) 2d
PageTurner789 @LauraBeth I tried searching for LitsyHappenings and nothing came up...
2d
LauraBeth Also - @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks runs a pretty large pen pal group for Litsy. Not sure if that‘d be of interest to you but it could be a great way to meet some others on Litsy. She has info on how to join on her most recent post. 2d
PageTurner789 @LauraBeth This sounds so cool and is exactly what I am looking for...someone to share my love of all things books with! Thank you for the recommendation!
2d
jb72 @PageTurner789 I just joined the penpal group and I‘m pretty excited about it. I am jb Byrkit on GR. 2d
DrexEdit @PageTurner789 I feel the same way that it takes me so long to read I'd be posting about the same book forever. But you can also post book-related things - - news, movie or TV tie-ins, sales, pretty covers, trips to the bookstore, etc. Or quotes! Some people I follow post a bunch of quotes from the books the are reading. I like following those! 😊 2d
Scochrane26 Are you doing the Christmas/winter games? For me, doing a couple of swaps & the scarathlon has gotten me involved. Before that, I would join in with the daily get-to-know-you posts like wondrous Wednesday & friyay. 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @LauraBeth thank you Laura!! 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I also cohost a daily photo challenge with @OriginalCyn620 #GratefulReads) is this month‘s and I cohost #BotmBuudRead and #LitsyLove with @TheBookHippie 💌📬📚 2d
PageTurner789 @Scochrane26 honestly I‘m so new to Litsy that I have no idea what‘s going on lol 2d
Scochrane26 @PageTurner789 it took me a few months, too. I‘ll try to tag you on things to make sure you see them. 2d
PageTurner789 @Scochrane26 thanks! That‘s very nice of you! 2d

A few weeks ago my aunt spent the time to help us get reorganized!

This shelf is the books I had in a Barnes and Noble bookhal bag from this summer along with some of my books that I haven‘t read yet from a few years ago! This is only part of my TBR books but I am so happy for them!

I also have 3 Harry Potter books and 2 other books upstairs that I haven‘t read yet! This isn‘t just a hobby it‘s a life style!

#FallisBooked

ReaperOfTerrasen Have you done past Fallen? I enjoyed the first one then started Torment, but took a break part way through. That was about 4 years ago lol 3w
PageTurner789 I bought Fallen in middle school but never got to it for whatever reason! 3w

Mehso-so

This book took me almost 2 months to finish....

I pushed through and I finished! I think I didn't overly enjoy this book because it took me so long to read it. My mom and neighbor loved the books that are out and thats why I forced myself to finish a book I wasn't necessarily enjoying. I haven't decided if I am going to start the second book yet or not.
- Maybe finish later...

Oldschool_millenial A classmate in a folklore class in University did a presentation on the tale type(s) it riffs off of. It was interesting 1mo
ReaperOfTerrasen The rest are much much better. 1mo
PageTurner789 @ReaperOfTerrasen that‘s what I‘ve heard but I think I‘m going to take a break and read something else for now! 1mo
WickedReader88 The first book is slow, better towards the end. But the following books are much better! 1mo

EadieB @TheReadingMermaid You're welcome! I love to promote my friends' activities! (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 Would be great to have you join us. The aim of the #24B4Monday Readathon is to try to read for 24 hours over the Friday - Sunday of the last weekend of the month. Although to be fair not really matter what total you get to more important is reading and posting about your reading over that weekend and just having fun and seeing what total you get to. Thanks for the mention @EadieB 2mo

PageTurner789 @Clwojick It's an app called Bookly I haven't used it much so I'm not really the one to ask how it works but you can enter the book info into the app and it will calculate your reading speed, and other stats. Its kinda cool but confusing at the same time there is a free option (which I use) or a $19 fee for more that the app has to offer! 3mo
PageTurner789 Thank you every one I'm hoping to read a lot more this weekend! 3mo

Does anyone know what exactly #24b4monday is all about? I'm having trouble finding the original post...thanks!

BethM Reading 24 hours from Friday through Sunday night. There will be some check in posts. Like a party and a challenge for introverts. The incomparable @TheReadingMermaid and the delightful @Andrew65 run it every month, last weekend of the month. 3mo
PageTurner789 oh wow that's wild! Is it ok if I just read to read because I really like sleep and I know I probably won't reach 24 hours?! 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @BethM *takes a bow* why thank you so much my dear! I appreciate that wonderful shout out 😘😘 3mo
See All 21 Comments
TheReadingMermaid @PageTurner789 of course that's okay sweetie. The overall goal is definitely to hit 24 hours within that time span but the true main goal is to just read and have fun with your fellow readers 😉 3mo
BethM @PageTurner789 like Tamara said that‘s totally cool. I‘ve never hit 24, but the times I‘ve been able to partake have been absolutely delightful. 3mo
DGRachel Yes, it‘s a no-pressure readathon that typically runs the last Friday-Sunday of each month, although I think this month it is running through Monday, too. And this month @TheReadingMermaid and @Andrew65 have a suggested theme, but again, it‘s just a suggestion and totally no pressure. I love it because it helps give me that little extra push to finish more books for my monthly stats. 😍 3mo
PageTurner789 @TheReadingMermaid I'm new to Litsy so I'm just happy to be finding activities to participate in! Do people have the opportunity to meet other Litsy users during this time? 3mo
PageTurner789 @DGRachel So is the Readathon this weekend or Labor Day Weekend?! 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @PageTurner789 oh well welcome to Litsy sweetheart! Yes joining in on readathons is a great way to meet new people and to see different events that are happening as well. and yes the read-a-thon is taking place this weekend. You can jump in at any time. Just make a post with what you are reading currently and tag #24B4Monday @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72 we are the hosts 😉😘❤️ 3mo
PageTurner789 @TheReadingMermaid Thank You, I'm excited to participate! 3mo

Today I went to Barnes and Noble on lunch break and got the first 2 in the Caraval series and one other! I went back to work and my co-worker surprised me with the Matched series!

Has anyone read any of these!?

Scochrane26 I read matched (think it was audio). Never finished the others because I wasn‘t excited about the series. Typical ya dystopian that‘s trying to be the next hunger games,💚 triangle, a little repetitive. You may love them though. I might have been burnt out on the genre at the time, it was a few yrs ago. 3mo
PageTurner789 @Scochrane26 I haven't read Matched yet like I said it was a gift from a coworker...I remember having it on my TBR back in the Hunger Games, Divergent, ETC ERA and just running out of time to read another series. I hope to give it a chance and I hope I enjoy it! 3mo
PageTurner789 @Clwojick This series is pretty popular in the epic reads book club I'm in on facebook...I hope I like it! 3mo
Feenbraut I read the matched series and enjoyed it very much. What is Caraval about? The cover is quite appealing 😍 (edited) 3mo
