Random Reading Challenge


RandomReading.01-249x300

Caribousmom has created this new challenge that runs for a full year – August 1 – July 31, 2010. It sounds like such a fun challenge that really creates a random selection process, not just what you feel like reading.

RULES:

  1. NO lists allowed. Books for the challenge are chosen one at a time when the mood strikes.
  2. Sign up at any time during the challenge period using Mr. Linky below. Please give me a direct link to your blog post about the challenge. If you do not have a blog, no worries. Simply enter your name and leave the URL box on Mr. Linky blank.
  3. Book reviews are not required, but if you want to write a review I will be providing a review Mr. Linky after August 1st.
  4. Books are selected one at a time using the following procedure:
  • Randomly select any number of books from either your physical OR your virtual TBR pile (I don’t care how you do this, but it must be random…no “cherry picking” allowed)
  • Assign a number to each book based on how many books you selected (ie: if you selected 14 books, assign each book a number from 1 through 14; if you selected 28 books, assign each book a number from 1 through 28…you get the idea)
  • Go to THIS SITE and use the TRUE RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR located in the upper right hand corner of the page to randomly select the book you will read. NO CHEATING – whatever the random number generator generates is the book you must read!
  • Each time you select a book for the challenge, you will use this procedure. You many select different books each time, choose a different amount of books each time, etc…have fun, mix it up, keep it random.

I have chosen to work on the Level III – which is to read 12 books randomly. My 12 books will be chosen randomly by the true random number generator from my own TBR list. August 1 I will type in my numbers to find out what my first book will be.

Happy Reading.

My List:

  1. Big Bad Wolf by James Patterson – SEPT 1
  2. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice (up next)
