Hey everyone! Thanks for coming back to participate in Random Reads this month!
If you read my Random Reads post from last month you’ll remember that I announced I’m pregnant. Which is great! We’re so excited…and a bit distracted. lol Since finding out I’m pregnant I haven’t gotten much reading done just because I’ve been researching and looking up baby stuff to buy and making baby things and stuff like that.
So while I’m not giving up on Random Reads altogether, I am going on a personal hiatus from it for the time being. I will still be putting up the monthly linkup for you guys but for now I’m just going to sit out until I’m more in the mood to join back in. I hope you guys understand and still enjoy the meme though!
In short, Random Reads is a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read within the month. Feel free to do more than one per month, but since a lot of people have a lot of books to read each month, only one is “required” for the meme. I’m on Goodreads so I’m using a combination of the sorting feature and Random.org to pick the book I’m going to read.
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. Or you can enter a smaller number as the Max in order to always pick books that have been on your TBR shelf for longer.
- Scroll down to the book matching the number Random.org picks.
- Link up to your Random Reads post (below). If you choose more than one book per month, be sure to put a number by your name in the list so it doesn’t look like a duplicate.
- Read and be merry.
If you’re not on Goodreads just pick a random book from your list in whatever way you want to do it. You can use the method I used above or even just close your eyes and point randomly at a book on your bookshelf if you want (spin the bottle style). lol

Here is the meme button you can use and it’s copy/paste code:
Or you can use the longer “banner” version I used in this post instead:
