Sharon Wow! Lots of new books for me to read! Thanks to all who added to this list.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) It's a great list ... and it'll keep growing rapidly, I predict -- 15 voters in a single day is really a lot!


message 3: by Sharon (new)

Sharon What a great way to discover the kind of books I like most. Unfortunately, not so much time for reading any more -- I got a job!

That's what I like about GR lists ... besides, they're just fun to create! :)


message 5: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Is there any way to change the ranking on one's own lists? My ranking is pretty random, based only on the order I added the books to the list, and I noticed that the private ranking effects the rank on the public list.


message 6: by Pisceschick (new)

Pisceschick Thanks for this list, so much of it looks interesting!

I managed to add a non-qualifying book book while looking instead for a "follow this list" button. :P


message 7: by Macallister (new)

Macallister Stone Thanks so much, Sharon! What a terrific idea, and I've gotten to add a bunch of really awesome books to my tbr pile. :D

You change the number in the box next to the title of the book, and then click on the main page, to "set" it.


message 9: by Elliot (new)

Elliot Richards This is a great looking list, definitely part of my future reading, thanks!


message 10: by James (new)

James Dante Yesterday I added my novel, THE TIGER'S WEDDING, to the giveaway list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads What does that have to do with this Listopia?


message 12: by James (new)

James Dante My book is on this list.


message 13: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards Only because you put it there!


message 14: by James (new)

James Dante OK, so this is the uptight group. Got it.


message 15: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards ROFL


message 16: by K (new)

K Multicultural? World Literature has come a long way. It is now Asian-American, urban-rural etc. More people are writing and being read.


message 17: by Ruth (new)

Ruth E. R. Slave: My True Story is not a novel


message 18: by Ruth (new)

Ruth E. R. Slave: My True Story is not a novel


message 19: by Ruth (new)

Ruth E. R. The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyŏng etc is obviously not a novel


message 20: by Aurora (new)

Aurora I haven't read all the books, but I'm really curious how Lasher by Anne Rice is multicultural, as well as John Jakes' North and South book? As far as I remember, Lasher does not feature characters of color.
