Random Reads: July Edition

After getting lost in book blogs the other night, as I am often wont to do, I stumbled upon this really great self-motivational project called Random Reads. It's about finally tackling the TBR pile by randomly selecting and reading a book from what is, in my case, an ever growing list. This project is especially perfect for me right now because I basically have zero inkling to read these days.

So, I went through the steps by numbering my to-read shelf on GoodReads and then using random.org to randomly select my book. Here's my results:

Lucky number 7 ...which means:

John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces! Needless to say, I am thrilled by this selection. I have been meaning to read this Pulitzer Prize winner for almost four years. It was highly recommended to me by a friend, and I love me a good anti-hero story. I still need to finish Sharon Creech's Bloomability, but once I do, I am moving on to fulfill this month's Random Reads, no excuses.


  1. Looking forward to seeing what you think of this one - it's been on my wishlist for AGES but I still haven't bought a copy! I'll shove it up the to-buy/to-find-at-the-library list if the outcome is a big thumbs up!

    I'll be reading 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' for my RR, just as soon as I've finished my last couple of library books... I've been looking for a copy for ages and finally found one a month or two ago, so I'm really excited to get stuck in!

  2. Will 'Fear and Loathing' be your first Hunter S. Thompson book? I want to read his work, but I'm unsure where to start.
