Lost in the Land of #Litsy

In case you haven’t noticed, I read. A lot. I read when I take my dogs out, I read while I’m brushing my teeth, I read while I’m ‘watching’ a movie. Some people understand the compulsion to always have their nose buried in a book. Many do not.

memeMy reading addiction habit sometimes leaves me feeling awkward and inadequate on social media. I’ll read what others are posting, skim the conversations they’re having, but my possible responses don’t seem appropriate. “Never seen that show. Haven’t watched that. Ohh, I read the best book while that was on.”

I felt myself drawing away from Facebook. I gave Google+ a try. Found myself spending more and more time on Goodreads. Instagram was good for a quick fix, but really, none of these provided me with what I was looking for.

PhotoHuman connection, interaction, something that makes you feel in touch with, a part of the rest of the world. Then, about a month ago, I found what I was looking for. Litsy. A land of literature, where everyone loves books as much as you do. The sight, the smell, the very thought of the written page triggering emotions that, for once, are shared.

Litsy has been described as Goodreads meets Instragram, except you interact more, everyone is always super nice, and you never come across a ‘no-no’ picture. There are book pictures, book quotes, book review – seriously, the most this place deviates from books is when people post pictures of their adorable reading companions – also with books.

If this sounds like a place you’d want to be, you can get the app here. And because this isn’t the type of social media where there’s stranger danger, look me up @BookDragonNotWorm. We’ll be friends that talk about – what else? Books!

    I completely understand your addiction- habit! I am the exact same way. This sounds horrible, but half the time i prefer books to people and I wish the characters were real. I will have to look at Litsy you had mentioned it before. It sounds amazing! ❤
