Reading Randomizer

 I came across a unique challenge that is being hosted at Storygraph.  It involves random number generators to clear books off your tbr list.  You will use a list that can be sorted by author, publication date etc.  You then generate a random number and see which book that directs you to read from your list.  I used my Goodreads board that is my Want to Read.   Coincidentally I ended up with quite a number of Non fiction books on my list so that will lend itself to coordinate with the non fiction reading challenge



January Book 1: Generate a random number (1 - # of books on your TBR) and read the book that appears at that position on your TBR list.
