In ascending order:
1. Sort by Title and read the 10th book down on your list.
2. Sort by Author and read the 10th book down on your list.
3. Sort by Number of pages and read the 10th book down on your list.
4. Sort by Date Added and read the 10th book down on your list.
5. Sort by Random and read the 10th book down on your list.

In descending order:
6. Sort by Title and read the 10th book down on your list
7. Sort by Author and read the 10th book down on your list.
8. Sort by Average rating and read the 10th book down on your list.

Cassandra | 5832 comments Yup, that's about it. Just update the participants list with members' progress and post some encouraging things along the way. :) Thanks for volunteering!


message 6: by Erika (new)

Erika (erikarae) | 708 comments I will try for all 10, please! Also, I started doing this and came up with the same book for two of the tasks, 10th down ascending by title and 10th down descending by author ended up being the same thing, which is kind of cool, but I decided to count 10 more down for descending author (so technically 20 down total, but keeping with the theme of 10s) so I could have 10 different books instead of one overlap. Hope this is okay!


message 7: by Candiss (last edited Sep 27, 2016 10:55AM) (new)

Candiss (tantara) | 996 comments This looks like a lot of fun - and helpful, too! Since I have a couple of big books slated to read for discussions in the coming few months, I'll aim to complete 7 of the 10 tasks to start.

I used my first-priority TBR shelf so I would have all the books available. I rolled books for all 10 tasks just in case I get ambitious.

(Note to self: I've now moved these books off the shelf I rolled from and onto my "To Read 2016" shelf so subsequent additions don't confuse the results.)
In ascending order:
1. Title/10th book down - Bluets by Maggie Nelson
2. Author/10th book down - The Girl with All the Gifts by Mike Carey
3. Number of pages/10th book down - We Live in Water by Jess Walter
4. Date Added/10th book down - Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson
5. Random/10th book down - Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor

In descending order:
6. Title/10th book down - Sula by Toni Morrison
7. Author/10th book down - The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett Thomas
8. Average rating/10th book down -
9. Date Added/10th book down - As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes
10. Random/10th book down - Dark Matter by Blake Crouch


Read: 7/7

Caro (karopi) | 992 comments Please add me to this challenge. I will edit this a bit and from my TBR list I will do it only with the books that I own so I will not have to buy more books (not that is too complicated for me) But it will be a great way to reduce the books in my library and have the excuse to then buy those that I do not have yet.

In ascending order:
1. Sort by Title and read the 10th book down on your list. Bird Box
2. Sort by Author and read the 10th book down on your list. Flowers in the Attic
3. Sort by Number of pages and read the 10th book down on your list.A Few Seconds of Radiant Filmstrip: A Memoir of Seventh Grade

Cheri (jovali2) What fun! I'm still working on the yearly TBR randomiser challenge, so I think I'll sign up for only 5 -- I'll do the descending order.

Descending:
1. Title #10: Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston by Valerie Boyd
2. Author #10: Inventing American Religion: Polls, Surveys, and the Tenuous Quest for a Nation's Faith by Robert Wuthnow
✔ 3. Average rating #10: The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
4. Date added #9: Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity by Julia Serano(Incredibly, #10 for this was the same as #10 for average rating, so I went with #9!)
5. Random #10: Unseen City: The Majesty of Pigeons, the Discreet Charm of Snails & Other Wonders of the Urban Wilderness by Nathanael Johnson

I'm a little surprised that I got all nonfiction!

I haven't read #2 in the Percy Jackson series and while I'm reading Fellowship of the Ring in July, I don't know if I'll be able to squeeze in The Two Towers too. Several of these are pretty quick reads though and I already own some.
