February Random Reads selection

It's time to select my Random Read for February! How exciting! The suspense is killing me! Now it's off to the random number generator. I have 649 books on my TBR shelf at the moment, so I enter 1 as the min and 649 as the max, and hit Generate. (I can't help but picture myself spinning a big wheel as I do this. "Where it stops, nobody knows!")

Drum roll, please!

For February's Random Read I'll be reading The Hollow Tree by Janet Lunn. It's been on my TBR shelf on Goodreads since June 2009, which is in my first few months on Goodreads, when I was still adding my whole library, so I've really had it for much longer than that. Probably since the 90s. So it's about time I finally got around to this one!


  1. haha You're so funny. I can just picture spinning the big wheel like on The Price is Right. ;)

    And WOW! That ones been on your shelf for quite awhile huh? I hope you enjoy it! :)

  2. ohh a spinning wheel, I want one of those jeje. Enjoy your book :P

  3. Haha, I was actually picturing the wheel on Wheel of Fortune. :P

    When I joined Goodreads in May 2009, I spent several months adding every book I owned to it, and even now a huge chunk of my to read shelf is taken up by those very old books.

  4. LOL I always think of a spinning wheel when I use! Too bad it generates it so quickly, not much spinning for my wheel. My Random Read this month is also one I've had since 2009! Enjoy your pick this month :)

  5. I like the randomized decision. Have fun!

    I can't believe your shelf is so big! But I guess mine has dindled due to a buying ban and several moves in the last couple years.

    1. Moving somehow did not help me. I moved with 16 banana boxes full of books! I was on a self-imposed buying ban in January, to try to catch up after getting lots of books in December. It's been helpful, so I should probably do that more often!

  6. What a great choice! Glad Random Reads has helped you get to this one :)
