Winter (winter9) | 4721 comments THE LISTOPIA CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019


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!

Winter (winter9) | 4721 comments How to Participate

1. Post here telling the Challenge Leader that you'd like to join the challenge. You can choose your books for the challenge at the beginning, or add them as you go. You can join a challenge at any time, as long as the challenge is still active. You must chose a goal for the challenge.

2. Whenever you finish a book for the challenge, post here and let the challenge leader know so they can update your progress.
---Please be sure to post the number of books (pages for the Let’s Turn Pages Challenge), you have completed every time you post an update. The Challenge Leader is not able to keep track for you because of the number of participants in the challenge.

3. Some members choose to update their original post with their progress to keep track of their challenge more easily, but make sure to also post a new message so the Challenge Leader knows to go look at your original post. You can look at how other members report their progress to find a strategy that works well for you.

Example:
message 32 updated! 2/25 books read!


For more information about how challenges work, check out this thread or ask your challenge leader.

PS. Please do not delete posts! It makes updating very confusing for the Moderators! If you decide to leave the challenge, please just let us know. You can edit your original post to say {redacted}. Thank you!
