Who We Are

It’s simple: We books.

The only thing that matches the joy of reading is sharing that joy with others. That’s why we created Litsy. Founded in 2015 by the bibliophiles who brought you Out of Print, Litsy is a place to organize, interact with, and document all things books. LibraryThing took over the reins at Litsy in 2018.

Our Mission

Litsy is here to bring as many people into the book conversation as possible. We aim to help you make posts, have more fun with the books you love, connect with bookish friends new and old, and find the books you never knew you were missing.

What We Value

As a community, we keep things simple on Litsy:

We value everyone’s opinion on a book, whether it’s a pick or a bail. It’s okay to disagree, or offer constructive criticism, but please be decent when discussing with others. Keep Litsy fun and positive.

Don’t spoil the experience for others. If a user wants to reveal a surprise development, they will have the option to mark the post as a Spoiler.

Do read and read and read and read. Then, share and share some more.

Know that this is just the beginning. We have big things planned, and we couldn’t be more excited than to have you along for the ride.
