Random Reads was a blog feature that used to be hosted by the blog, I’m Loving Books, however, it is no longer active (at least that I can fid). Random Reads Rebooted is a reimaged version of this and I hope you will join me.
I don’t know about you guys, but I have a bad habit of buying books and then forgetting about them…I’m like a squirrel storing away its nuts for winter, except I do it with books. Random Reads Rebooted is dedicated to finding (and reading) those books that have long been forgotten about it.
On the first Saturday of the month (or within that first week), randomly select a book that is on your bookshelves (it could be a virtual shelf like a Goodreads one, or a real shelf that you have someone randomly numbered). I recommend using random.org to help you pick that special or forgotten book. At the end of the month, come back and let us know what you thought about the book that you picked.
ok, so I feel like a bit of a slacker because mid-month I hit an epic reading slump (and honestly i’m still digging my way out of it) and i’m still slowly working on my book. I’m about 15% of the way through and enjoying it though. The cultural mesh between traditional Indian and New Jersey culture is making for an intriguing read.
Even though I have slacked on my January read – I am going to go ahead and pick a book for my February read. Continuing with my plan from last month, this month, I’m picking a book from my Amazon 2010 purchases shelf (which currently has 270 books on it). After sorting the books by title alphabetically, random.org gave me 96 – which correlated to Guns Will Keep Us Together, by Leslie Langtry.
