Net ionic equations with no ions

Just a short question:
Now the molecular equation between LiOH (aq) with HBr (aq) is (I presume):
LiOH (aq) + HBr (aq) ----> LiBr (aq) + H(2)O (l)
Now I'm confused about the net ionic, since there are no ions.
Would it just be:
OH(-) + H(+) ---> H(2)O?

What is the solubility of LiBr?

Think of a solution of NaCl. What are the ions?

Additionally, I recommend you look up the chapter on Ionic Equations in your favorite physical chemistry text. I like Atkins, but any decent text will show you how to go about this.

Astronuc has shown a good way, in aqueous solutions we don't have LiBr on hand, this is in another form. And look for cross-ionic reactions to give the final product. You wrote (aq) for three compounds, but not for H2O, this may give you a cue.
