Random Reads is a monthly meme hosted by Sarah at I’m Loving Books. This feature is to get us reading a random book within the month that is in our TBR stack.
I’ve seen this meme around, but never participated myself. However, my Goodreads to-read list is completely out of hand, so I figured what better to way to start (slowly, ever-so-slowly) whittling it down a bit? Therefore, I’ve decided to participate in this meme each month, because it will help me not only lower those to-read numbers, but also remind me of those books I’ve added to the list and since (shamefully) forgotten about.
Want to participate? Here are the (very simple) rules:
- 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.
- Post and link up.
- Read and be merry.
I have a ridiculous 1009 books on my Goodreads to-read list (and that’s after going through and deleting over 100 of them), so that was my maximum number. Random.org gave me #88 for the month of April, which is:
So my April to-read book is Need by Carrie Jones. This title has been on my list since January 16, 2012, which was very close to the day I joined Goodreads. Again: shameful! I enjoy books about faeries, so am excited to give this one a try.
