In my excitement over Carl’s RIP Challenge, I’ve neglected this very fun challenge hosted by Wendy at Caribou’s Mom. It’s such a fun challenge, in addition to being helpful. Sometimes, a gal just can’t figure out which book to read next! So, why not let a random number generator help you figure it out? It works as well as any other method…like closing your eyes and grabbing or letting your son choose for you.
Rather than just randomly choosing books from my TBR pile, I just went with all of them. There are only thirty books I have physically on-hand, so it wasn’t a huge list. The randomness of the choices was more in how they were listed. The magical random number generator thought that the fifth book on my list would be a great next read. So, that means that Eat, Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert is my next book (after I finish Grace Hammer, that is)! Tammy at Tammy’s Book Nook is the one who got me intrigued by this book and is the reason I picked it up at the bookstore several months ago. I am very excited to read it!
Not a problem, Tammy! I normally don't remember were I read the review that got me interested, but yours stuck out. I was definitely not disappointed when the random generator decided to pick that one out of the list!
Thanks for the shout-out! One of the podcasts that I listen to is Slate's Audio Book Club, and I recently listened to them discuss Eat, Pray, Love. The 2 women loved it and the man hated it — I'm wondering if that's a typical reaction? I know that the editor of the NY Times Book Review (a man) also hated it. Looking forward to seeing what you think.
It will be a few weeks yet, as I've got another test to study for…But yeah, I'm looking forward to starting it!
Ooh, I've always wondered what Eat, Pray, Love is like. Can't wait to hear your thoughts. 😀
It's such an easy challenge and yet so difficult, for some reason! I like letting something else choose which book to read though. It takes the pressure off of me.
I have yet to get started on this challenge myself. But I'm so looking forward to it.
