Random Reads

From I’m Loving Books:

It’s easy…

  1. If you’re on Goodreads enable sorting to your to-read shelf (you should see numbers next to each book now).
  2. Go to Random.org and type in the Min as 1 and the Max as how many ever books are on your to-read shelf.
  3. Scroll down to the book matching the number Random.org picks.
  4. Link up to your Random Reads post (below).
  5. Read and be merry. :)

So, I’ve decided to join this fun meme.  I thought this would be a great way to par down my TBR shelf and read some books I might not pick up right away.  I used the Goodreads sorter and Random.org to find my Random Read.

This month’s winner:

#139 The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Ohhh… This has been on my list for so long, I can’t even remember.  Can’t wait to get into it!

#1 Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

I’ve had this one for awhile.  I even went to see the movie before I read the book (I know, Bad Tobe!).  I guess I will now be getting around to reading this soon.

Random Reads

From I’m Loving Books:

Basically I have too many books on my to-read list that have been getting more and more buried every day. So I thought it would be fun to use random.org to pick a random book on my Goodreads to-read list and I would read that book NOW.

The only exceptions are if it’s a book that’s in the middle of a series you’re reading and you haven’t gotten to that book yet then you can pass and pick another random book. Or, if it’s a book you look at and realize it’s something you’re no longer interested in then you can DELETE it from your to-read list and pick another. You can also obviously skip it if it’s a coming soon book that hasn’t been released yet. I actually keep my coming soon books on a separate exclusive shelf so that’s not an issue for me here.

#4 Bridge to Terabitha by Katherine Paterson

I bought this book a few years ago.  The idea was that I was building a library for my boys.  Their reading tastes have turned to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Pokemon…  so the book sat there.  I’ve been meaning to read this myself for awhile.  But other books just got in the way.  Maybe this was the Universe’s way of tell me to read it now.

#61 Night of the Necromancer

A part of my Zombie Reading Challenge, I won this last year but never got around to reading it.  I was planning on reading this soon…  guess Random Reads wanted me to get to it sooner rather than later.

#79 The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Pretty funny…  I was actually planning of reading this one in the near future.  I already own this one, so I’m putting it on tap for after Bout of Books Readathon 3.0 (Jan. 9-15).
