TDD Random Reads & Reading Wheel - October 2017

Tall, Dark & Deadly discussion on goodreads


Random Reads October 2017

Purpose: Reduce that TBR

How it works
* In this challenge, each participant picks a random book from their personal TBR to read during the upcoming month.

* Sort your TBR shelf (or any other shelf you want to use for the challenge) by position. Make sure the numbers are enabled on your shelf. You do this by going to "settings" on the "my books" tab, clicking on the "position" option and pressing "save". 

* Go to Random.org. Type 1 in the "Min" box and the total number of books of your shelf in the "Max" box. Click "generate".

* Scroll to the number obtained from Random.org. This is the book you will read for this month. 

* Post your book in this thread and be sure to come back and tell us what you thought of it. 

* Feel free to ask any questions in this thread. 

#1359 Mr. President (White House, #1) by Katy Evans Mr. President Katy Evans 

A BIG DNF! I did not like this one - I just could not get into it. I knid of felt that "the president" was luring Charlotte in and playing her. Of course nothing had really happened between them yet when I called it quits.

I either love or hate books by this author. 




Purpose: Reduce that TBR / Choose your next book

How it works:

OPTION #1

* Every month I will spin the wheel and participants will read a book from the resulting category. See below for a list of categories and their corresponding shelves. 
* You can read as many books from the category as you like.
