Random Reads is an awesome meme just started by I'm Loving Books. The meme is another one to get rid of books that are on your to-read list. The catch is, you are not choosing the book, it is being chosen randomly for you. In my case, I'm going to use random.org. I have 1320 books on my Goodread's to-read list. I'm going to put in 1-1320 on random.org and see which number it gives me. Then I'll read that book, provided I have it or the e-book isn't ridiculously expensive. Easy peasy. I'm going to be participating once a month.
Last month, random.org chose Life of Pi. Did I read it? Nope, sure didn't. Didn't even crack it open. Or open the file, since I have it on my nook. It was just a crazy busy month, and I didn't even bother to start it. Oh well. Back into the to-read pile it goes.
Let's see what random.org has in store for me this month.
(As a side note, last month I 1320 books on my to-be-read list. I now have 1375. I need to read some damn books.)
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. When random.org chose this, I was going to skip it and have it choose another one. I just have too much epic fantasy going on right now. (I'm still slowly reading through Dance with Dragons because I don't want it to end.) But then I read what is quite possibly the greatest book review in the history of book reviews. If I could find a way to post the link to it, I would. It is on the goodreads' page and is by a guy named Michael.
So long story short, I hope to read the book The Lies of Locke Lamora this month. In addition to finishing the book I'm reading for review (A Kingdom's Possession - it's really good, go check it out) as well as Dance with Dragons, Mistress of Rome, and any other books that might tickle my fancy this month. Gah!
