Winter (winter9) | 4721 comments THE LISTOPIA CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018


Listopia is back for yet another year! Feel free to carry on your goal from the previous years, or to start fresh with new goals and new lists.

Goodreads features a number of user-created lists which can be found here.

In addition to the featured and popular lists on the main page, you can see lists your friends have voted on or search for lists with topics that interest you.

The number of lists you choose and the number of books you read from each is entirely up to you. One person might choose to read the Top 100 books from one list, another person may choose to read the Top 5 books from 10 lists. You can mix it up any way you like.

Posting a link to your chosen lists is not required, but it does help others find the list you are referring to if they want to check it out as well! If you do want to post a link, here are the instructions:

1. Find your list and copy the URL (which can be found at the top of your browser - the box with the website address)
2. When posting your comment in the comment box, the code you use to add a link is this: [a href="URL HERE"]Name of list here[/a]
3. Replace the []s with <>s and paste the URL in place of URL HERE.

Happy Reading!
