It's time to select my Random Read for October! Last month, my Random Read was Claws by Will Weaver, which I read, and it was terrible. C'est la vie.
So it's off to the random number generator. I have 717 books on my TBR shelf at the moment, so I enter 1 as the min and 717 as the max, and hit Generate. (If you actually looked at my shelf and saw that this number is way off, that's because I wrote this post right before buying a huge pile of books at the Children's Hospital Book Sale!)
Drum roll, please!
For October’s Random Read I'll be reading The Art of Egypt: The Time of the Pharaohs by Irmgard Woldering. It's been on my TBR shelf since May 17, 2009, which is during the time when I was adding my collection to Goodreads, meaning it's probably much older. This is the first time a non-fiction book has come up for my Random Read. I'm a little nervous about it! My non-fiction books tend to be the ones that I don't want to get rid of, but at the same, I don't really want to read them. I put them off way too much. So this is good. I WILL read this non-fiction book!
