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.
Want to join in on Random Reads?
- If you’re on Goodreads enable sorting to your to-read shelf (you should see numbers next to each book now).
- 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.
- Scroll down to the book matching the number Random.org picks.
- Link up to your Random Reads post (below).
- 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:
#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).
