Jane Austen News – Issue 124

The Jane Austen News for Newcastle

What’s the Jane Austen News this week? 

Instagram, But For Books Only

A new app the Jane Austen News came across this week is Litsy, which we thought was so nice we had to share it with you.

Litsy is a cross between Instagram and Goodreads. You “follow” different readers and publishers who then share photos of what they’re reading or have read recently. Users can also share quotes from the books they’re reading, or, if so inclined, whole reviews, although the app is more aimed at quick snapshots rather then in-depth analysis.

It has all of the normal social network features, like commenting on and sharing posts, but one of the best bits of Litsy is its easy “To Read” list feature. When you see the cover of a book you want to read appear in your feed, you can add it to your “To Read” list and refer back to it next time you visit your local bookshop.

Anyway, if you like looking at book covers (like we do!) we think you’ll like this.
