Shrinking the TBR Pile [1]

So what's the purpose of this meme? I know a lot of us have a towering pile of TBR books and it's tough to choose which book to dig in to next. So why not number the books and randomly choose a couple to read for the upcoming week?... Super smart huh?

I have a lot of commitment books to be read for review at the moment so I'm only going to be picking one book (instead of three) each week for right now until I can get that specific pile o' books down (too many piles of books in my room, trust me).

The lucky winner in this week's draw is:

Corresponding book:

Glass Houses :: Rachel Caine

Now the question is will I get to this book??
 I'm hoping when the new year starts I'll be more smart about picking the books I accept to review. I do know that I'll be concentrating way more on getting my TBR pile down though.

Since last February, I have been a follower and now
my TBR shelves are groaning. Last night, I picked four out of the first stack and took them to the living room. It seems sometimes the cover "calls" to me like a siren and makes the decision easier!

I have a ton of books to read to. What i did was go to and had it pick a number from 1-26 (for the alphabet). It came up with 21 which I was thinking was T so I went through all my books starting with T and put them in a pile. Now when I am thinking about it, it should have been U for number 21. Oh well, it was a way to help me anyway.

I'm definitely a fan of the system as it's how I choose most of the books I'm going to read :)
