Is your TBR shelf getting out of hand. Join the club!

For this monthly challenge, spin the wheel. Using the number you got, pick a book from your TBR shelf. (For number 10, you can use either '1' or '0' or both.) You decide how many books you want to reduce from your TBR pile using the number you got.

Example: you spun a 6. You can read #6 on your TBR list. Or:
the book can be published in a year ending in 6
the book can be published in June (the 6th month)
the book can be the 6th in a series
the book can have a 6 in the page number.

It's up to you how the number connects with a book from your TBR list. The possibilities are endless, but the book must be associated with the number you spun.

Happy reading and let's slim down our TBR lists!
