Random Reads is a monthly meme in which a book from your TBR shelf is randomly selected to be read that month.

Here are the rules from the host site:

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?

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. 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.
  3. Scroll down to the book matching the number Random.org picks.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).


Here is my selection this month

chosen using Random.org:

random reads - marchI have so many books on my Own – TBR list (1042 to be exact) it’s actually getting a little scary. I buy so many books I often forget the ones I have had for some time. This meme seems like a great way of catching up on some of the titles I have had sitting around (either on my kindle or literally on my shelves).

    • I thought so too – I have so many books waiting to be read so this is a good way of trying to get that number down even if it is a slow process lol. 😉
