Here Comes 2017 - A New Year of Lists
December 1, 2016 - November 30, 2017

This challenge has a new twist this year. We are going to create a chain of books that are interconnected while exploring Goodreads Lists (formerly Listopia). 

Here's how is works:
Step One: Pick one of your favorite books and go to the Homepage of that book.
Step Two: Scroll Down to "LISTS WITH THIS BOOK" and click on the link. It will display all the lists that your favorite book is found on. If no Lists are listed, you may need to choose a different starting book.
Step Three: Explore the lists and find a new book from one of the lists to read, noting what list you found it on and the number on the list.
Step Four: Read that book then go to its Homepage and start all over again. 
Step Five: Continue the chain until you complete your level. 

Special Circumstances
*If you find a series book on one of the lists you may read any number in the series. 
*If one of your chosen books is only on the one list you found it on, you can chose another book from that list OR add the book you read to another appropriate list making sure it meets the criteria of the list and choose your next book from that list. 

Example: 
Choose Favorite Book: A Year on Ladybug Farm. Click on LISTS WITH THIS BOOK from the Homepage. 
Explore Lists that include this book: From the list Best Adult Female Friendship Bookschose to read Vintage #115 
Completed Vintage. Went to explore LISTS WITH THIS BOOK. Chose: Illuminations #129 from list Wrapped in Clouds
Continue with the chain...

Level One: Complete 12 Books following the chain.
Level Two: Complete 24 Books following the chain.
Level Three: Complete 36 Books following the chain.

Challenge Rules: 
We will observe the 125 page limit. But you may combine books to reach the page limit but BOTH books must meet the requirement and be from the appropriate lists. All formats are acceptable. Re-reads are fine as long you read the entire book. 

Have fun creating your chain!
