LibraryCin | 9055 comments Hi, Kirsten! Nice to see you here, but I thought I'd mention that the Listopia challenge is meant for you to start reading the books after you choose the list. Let me find where it explains this...

I believe the reason is so that someone doesn't come along later in the year and just pick a list where they've already read a bunch of them. '

By the way, are you Canadian? I'm in Calgary, though I grew up in Southern Saskatchewan.

LibraryCin | 9055 comments The first post in the Listopia Challenge thread says this:

"UPDATE: You can change your list BUT any books you read from your prior list selection will not carry over. So, choose wisely and make sure you can stick with your list once you start reading! In addition, you can only count books read since choosing your new list—so if you have read a couple books on the list already in Jan-Feb, but you pick the list in March, those previous books won't count."

The update was initially meant to cover someone changing their list, but I'm pretty sure it is meant for someone coming in new, as well. The second sentence kind of speaks to this.

ETA: Check page 4, starting at post 156 for more explanation.

kris | 29 comments Hey, thanks for the clarification! I got a bit swamped with exams and whatnot the last few months but I am back! I live in Toronto, although I grew up in a smaller city about 2 hours away :) I'm gonna stick with my Listopia theme but scratch my two previously read entries as per the rules. I'm actually more excited to give more entries to a great list.
