Tina This is SUCH a Reddit list!


message 2: by Riya (new)

Riya I love reddit - I am so excited that their compiled list of the best books to read made it unto Goodreads. Yay!


message 3: by Omar (new)

Omar Manejwala This list is awesome!


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Question: Is Isn't It Pretty To Think So? a Reddit recommendation? If not, should it be removed?

(This book has recently been spammed onto 30+ pages' worth of listopia lists. GR librarians are in the process of cleaning house -- but of course we wouldn't want to remove anything that the respective list creators actually want to keep on their lists!)
