Challenge: #Random-Available

I have such a huge wishlist at the library (and tend to jump right over those books to the next in series for book just enjoyed or a new "shiny" seen on booklikes feed).

 

I'm making myself a "Random-Available" challenge for the remainder of 2017:

 

  • At least twice a month (maybe weekly), I'm going over to library ebook wishlist and filtering just by currently available.  
  • Over to http://random.org to generate a number from 1 to however many pages that wishlist was.  That's my page number of the wishlist.
  • Then generate a number between 1-20 (because that's how many books on each page of my library's wishlist).  That's the book I'll borrow -- with permission to pick another book on the same page if not in the mood for it.
  • No deadlines, no prizes (other than hopefully finding good books), no obligations to review,  do not have to finish the book, and not competing with anyone.  Just getting around to books I've been meaning to read.
