Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: Books and Apps

I am in the heart of my busy season, working ten hours a day, seven days a week. Thus, although I'm still reading for pleasure, I don't have a ton of energy to write thoughtful reviews for this space.

Fortunately, I like to write about books in general, so expect a variety of bookish posts (plus my photographs & Weekend Cooking), but not too many in-depth reviews over the next couple of weeks.

New Litsy App

 If you have iOS I encourage you get the Litsy app. I am totally in love with it, and if anything would stop me from blogging on a regular basis, it would be that app. I'm posting mini reviews of everything I'm reading and keeping track of the books I'm hoping to read. Plus I'm having a ton fun composing photographs to accompany my posts on Litsy. Find me there as BethFishReads (duh!)

If you pop on over to Litsy, you'll be able to see my thoughts on Sweetgirl by Travis Mulhauser (a tense story with good characters), my gushing about Augusten Burroughs's Lust & Wonder (I love all his memoirs and this one is a don't miss), my disappointment with Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr (it was a DNF), and my mini review of the audio of Padma Lakshmi's Love, Loss, and What We Ate (an interesting memoir).

In addition, I've posted in-progress blurbs, a few quotes, and some books I'm adding to my wish list. Litsy is where I'm hanging out these days! I would love to see you there, so be sure to let me know if you've set up an account and what your user name is.

I've been hearing about Litsy and I tried to join, but I need a newer version of IOS and my iphone doesn't have enough storage left to upgrade to the new IOS! So, I have to wait until it's time to buy a new phone. Grr...

I need to check out Litsy as I have never heard of it before this.

You know I love Litsy too! I just wish there was a way to use it on the computer as well as on your phone.

Haven't heard of this app but it sounds like something I could waste a lot of time on, haha.

I'm still getting the hang of Litsy, but I see the potential (and perhaps it will help me be more consistent in writing book reviews...)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Litsy (on Sweetgirl by Travis Mulhouser). It kept me tense all the time, while I was reading it. How did he manage to make them so real, I wonder?

I wish Litsy was available on Android.
