2017 Randomizer Challenge

This is a cool challenge.  I am excited to play it.

Crazy Challenge Connection discussion on goodreads

DURATION: January 1 - December 31, 2017

***Used with kind permission from the 2016 Reading Challenge group.***

PLEASE NOTE: This challenge does not begin until January 1. It is being posted early to give you time to configure your list without interfering too much with the holidays.

Most of us have TBR lists that contain books we've completely forgotten about, and it sometimes takes a kick from a challenge to rediscover those books, to pick them up and read them once and for all. Well, here's a challenge that may help you do just that :) 

First, choose how many books you want to read over the duration of the challenge. This is totally up to you, but we ask that you choose a minimum of 10 books.

Next, go to your "My Books" page on Goodreads, and select the shelf you want to use for this challenge. You can use your To-Read shelf if you'd like, or any other shelf you choose, but you must use the same shelf for the entire challenge. 

Now, sort your chosen shelf by Random.
The sort by option is located at the bottom of the page, beneath the listing of your books.

Next, set GR to show the number of books per page that you've chosen to read for this challenge. For example, if you've chosen 40 books, tell GR to display 40 books per page. The books on the first page will be the books you'll need to read for the challenge. 
GR has options to show 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 75 and 100 books per page. If you want to read 25 books, which isn't one of GR's options, I'd recommend setting it to show 30 books, and read all but the last five on the page. 

When you sign up for the challenge, tell us:
1. How many books you plan to read and
2. What shelf you're going to use and
3. The titles that the random generator came up with for you.


♣ When you sign up for the challenge, please post a challenge template so we have a post to which to link your name; post #2 will list participant links which can then be used for making challenge updates.

♣ For each book you read, please indicate the title, the author and the date you finished reading it. If a challenge task gives several options, please make it clear which option you’ve chosen. If the task calls for an item on the cover, include a link to the book cover.* If it’s not obvious from the book title or cover, be sure to explain how your book fits the task. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for completing that task. 

♣ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long.

♣ Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged!

♣ If you want the challenge moderator to check your progress as you make updates, please copy/paste your update into a new message . We don't have time to scroll back through the entire thread looking for "message #15," or to follow links back to an original post. 

♣ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire list as a new message to make it easier for everyone to see what you've read. If you don't repost your list, you won't be included in the list of those who have completed the challenge.

*If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title or cover, see the instructions here: Link Instructions
