When it comes to sharing one's thoughts and opinions of books online, they more often than not take on the form of a review rather than a conversation; the Litsy App hopes to ridge the gap between books clubs and such review sites by creating a digital space for people with a shared love of reading to connect.

Created by the book-themed company, Out of Print, the Litsy App essentially aims to build a community. Co-founder Todd Lawton says, "What we wanted to do was take the best, the most fun aspects of other social media platforms and back it with an amazing book database." Similar to Twitter, there is a character limit to comments, quotes and reviews. Yet people scroll through content tied to a specific book so as to truly immerse themselves in a type of discussion.
