"Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't."— Bill Nye


I'm ready to choose my first book of 2014, so that means it's time to spin the wheel!  I'm a very indecisive person, so when I'm having trouble making up my mind about which book to read next, I let an outside source choose it for me.  My "Wheel of Fortune" shelf on Goodreads is filled with 20 classics that I would like to eventually cross off my reading list, but most of the time I use my larger "Waiting on My Bookshelf" shelf as the number pool.  I then either ask a friend or one of my kids to choose a number, or use a random number generator to choose one.  Whatever book matches up with the chosen number is the next one I read. 


I've put together a numbered shelf on Goodreads called that contains my 'must read' reading list for 2014 (I'm a list maker who makes lists of her lists).   So let's get to it...I'm off to spin the wheel!


Today's lucky number is 13, which according to my list corresponds to...


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)


Excellent!  It's high time for me to finally read what all the fuss is about.  I have a paperback copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on my shelf, but I'll have to see if the library has the rest of the series available.  What a great way to kick off 2014!
