THE LISTOPIA CHALLENGE
From: Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge Group
Duration: January 1st – December 31st, 2016
It’s back! After popular demand, the Listopia challenge is returning for another year! Feel free to carry on your goal from the previous years, or to update with new goals and new lists.
Goodreads features a number of user-created lists which can be found here: Listopia
Besides the featured and popular lists on the main page you can see lists your friends have voted on as well as 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 decide and mix it up any way you like.
Choose your list (or multiple lists!) and the number of books you plan to read from each.
State your goals in your first post (posting a link to your lists is recommended*).
Any format of book, cross challenging etc. are all fine.
You can keep track in your Member’s Corner or update here.
When you finish off a list, post your completed list here so we can all congratulate you!
