Hey everyone! Thanks for coming back to participate in Random Reads this month!
Well, I know I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus from Random Reads because of being pregnant and busy but I’m going to try get back into the game now. My beautiful baby boy was born on February 4th and it’s been hectic and tiring, but at the same time a real joy and blessing having him in my life.
But I’d definitely like to have a little something for myself, and so I’m hoping to be able to find a little time for reading again. Random Reads seems like a good place to start.
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
Now onto this month’s Random Read! This month Random.org chose…
#45 on my to-read (own) list, Touch the Dark by Karen Chance, and it’s been on my to-read list since November 21, 2010.
I changed my max to 936, because a lot of my books added after that are children’s books. Touch the Dark looks like a fun paranormal so hopefully I’ll enjoy it!
