I‘ve been trying to figure out how to participate in #rolldecember since there‘s no way I‘m going to be able to read these 4 AND the #roll100 selections AND all the other books I want to read by the end of the year. Now I‘ve got it- I‘m going to consider these 4 as possible substitutes for any Nov or Dec #roll100 titles I‘m not really feeling. I will most likely switch out 2 titles for Freakonomics and BUtterfield8 in the coming weeks 🤔

PuddleJumper I have so many books I want to read in December and I'll probably end up reading 2 😂 3d

Here are my #Roll100 which are all numbers adjacent to the rolls as I have read all these numbers on my list. I was leaning towards lighter reads for December and these picks solidified that theme! Now to make my big #TBR
56/100 off my list this year so far!

IndoorDame Ooh I just read the Starless Sea and loved it! It has good December vibes 6d

I tried to go with some festive colours for December‘s #roll100

I‘m also running a mini challenge called #rolldecember where it‘s a list of 20 books rather than a 100, something to encourage a bit of reading through the cold, dark winter nights!

Roll 1 = 9
Roll 2 = 22
Roll 3 = 89

We had 22 in August so if you‘ve read that book already go for the next boom above or below

As always tag me because I‘m nosey!

Morr_Books @PuddleJumper I appreciate you getting these out early, as I am trying to plan my reading for the rest of the year to see if I have a shot at completing my Goodreads challenge (not looking good right now). Also, will you do #Roll100 next year, because I was terrible at it this year and want to try again? 2w
PuddleJumper @Morr_Books Yes, I'll be running it again next year. I'm getting a new post ready for 2023 as I'll just ask people if they still want to be tagged etc and I've created a Storygraph challenge for it 2w
JW1108 @PuddleJumper glad to hear it! I only managed a third of the rolled books this year and want to try again! 2w
tokorowilliamwallace I could put down a list of books I need to finish already (which is all of them really, 60+ just for 2022). Or I could do an alternate list of library books I check out (~40 out currently). 🤔 Better jump to lie/sink in the ball pit bed of Scrooge McDuck's vault of books I've made. O.o A new Storygraph challenge I can overcommit to! 2w
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I am switching to all holiday fluff for December, so I am lining these up with my alternate TBR list - 9 is All I Want for Christmas by Wendy Loggia, and 22 is How to Ruin the Holidays by Becky Monson - my list only goes to 59 but that's probably enough for one month 😂 2w
PuddleJumper @JW1108 TBR piles never really go down so I'll keep this challenge going! 2w
PuddleJumper @tokorowilliamwallace Decisions, decisions! 2w
PuddleJumper @TheAromaofBooks I've got a seperate December list too XD 2w
Read4life As @Morr_Books said, thank you for getting these out early. It definitely helps with planning ahead for #BookSpinBingo and my monthly TBR. 2w
claudiuo Thank you so much for drawing early so I can add them to my December list. I've read all of them but going to the closest one I should add to my list: The House of Shattered Wings (also a January pick I am still in debt with) and Thin Air (same, a debt, a November pick that I didn't even start). 2w
Bookworm54 Gosh I haven‘t even looked at Novembers pick yet 😂 this month is getting away from me! 2w
Larkken @Bookworm54 same 🤦🏻‍♀️ I will still have plenty for next year, lol! 2w
julieclair Mine are Little Fires Everywhere, Siri Who Am I , and Hons and Rebels. Unless I decide to do all holiday fluff like @TheAromaofBooks , which is looking very likely. 🎄 2w
PuddleJumper @claudiuo I've got a bit backlog. I'm going to start fresh next year and hopefully clear down my shelves a bit 2w
SpookyMazeOfBooks @PuddleJumper I love the idea of rolldecember , I'm going to make a different list for that one . 2w

Repost for @PuddleJumper

I am super busy at the moment but wanted to get this out early again. So no pretty dice this month but my Dwarven cleric who hasn‘t decided which god to follow and licks stone to determine its age has rolled for Novembers #roll100

Roll 1 = 63

Roll 2 = 92

Roll 3 = 25

Tag me at @puddlejumper so I can snoop on everyone's reading

Read4life Thank you for posting these amidst your busy schedule. It really is appreciated. 🤓 1mo
PuddleJumper @Read4life Babysitting my six year old niece then taking the rest of the week off to recover 🤣 1mo
claudiuo Thank you so much for posting these, you are awesome! As for books, I've read #25, closest is #30 Thin Air by Richard K. Morgan. Same for #92, I will use the ill-fated #100 which I still haven't read even if it came up 3 times already. Also #63 I read a couple months ago, closest is #59: The Last Librarian by Brandt Legg.
Thanks a lot again and wish you a restful end of the week!
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 1mo
PuddleJumper @claudiuo Wow! You are crushing it! 1mo
Clwojick Seriously hoping you‘ll be continuing with this for next year, as I‘ve already started compiling two separate lists for my Chirp audiobook backlog, and my NetGalley backlog. I feel like I‘ll have better luck with the audiobooks, as opposed to doing physical books like I did this year. 1mo
PuddleJumper @Clwojick Yes, I'll be carrying it on 1mo

So I have read all of these numbers, so these are books near the numbers. We‘ll see if I get to any of them.
A Natural History of Dragons
Six Crimson Cranes
The Iron King

PuddleJumper Awesome! 2mo
Morr_Books I am currently reading Roll100s from August & September. I'm a bit behind :( 2mo

It's a dark and spooky theme for October's #roll100

Roll 1 = 100
Roll 2 = 6
Roll 3 = 71

This is the 3rd time 100 has been rolled! Pick a book below it if you've read it already

Tag me @PuddleJumper so I can see what everyone is reading!

RaeLovesToRead Hehe... Guess who hasn't read number 100 yet 🙈🙈🙈 2mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Will post my books in a few after I wake up . My mom got called into work last night and it was the shift my sister and I don't like her to work ,the 10 pm to 6 am , 1: because their only allowed to lock one door, 2: because their alone doing that shift , 3: they never fixed the button that sends out a message that the work need help, and 4 their cameras are really bad, so basically they don't have good security at all for their workers 2mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Which means on nights that she works those shifts I'm up all night .then when she comes home I lay down for awhile 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Woohoo! My number 6 is a spooky read! I can use it for a bunch of challenges for #Scarathlon2022! ❤️🎃❤️ 2mo
Read4life Thanks as always for posting early! Book post to come. 2mo
Bookworm54 So pretty ☺️ 2mo
Ruthiella Clearly the universe wants me to read #100? I‘ve avoided it / failed each time so far! 😂 2mo
Larkken Thanks! You inspired me to buy a set of dice to help me decide what other books to read apart from my roll100, so you know that this challenge really gets me 🥰 (edited) 2mo
PuddleJumper @Larkken Amazing! Welcome to the land of pretty clack clacks 😂 2mo
claudiuo Thank you so much again for the early draw! I am so bad at reading the numbers picked but hope to get better. And I know I keep repeating myself but have to.... gorgeous dice! 2mo
claudiuo @Ruthiella Same here, I kept trying to ignore 100 but someone up (or down) there really wants me to get to it. 2mo
Ruthiella @claudiuo 😂 Will this third time be the charm for either of us? 2mo
Kenyazero Only when your fictional life doesn't depend on you rolling high can you roll 100 so often! 2mo

PuddleJumper @TheAromaofBooks Awesome! Enjoy your romantic month

Thanks! Unfortunately not, one of the players is moving to another time zone. They GM a campaign we‘re all in and I‘ll be starting a new campaign soon with the remaining players and some new people. Very excited!
claudiuo Thank you so much for drawing the numbers early. I've read all the numbers picked and around them, closest I haven't read is at pos. 50 so I'll add the tagged book to my list for September. Thank you! 3mo
PuddleJumper @claudiuo Whoop! Whoop! That's awesome 3mo

Yay, thank you @PuddleJumper for this monthly highlight!

My #roll100 picks for August:
#22 is Girl (likelihood of a DNF is >50% for this one- I added it to my TBR when I was a teenager 😬)
#100 is A Small Place
#17 is The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories (I‘m not big on creepy and weird, but it‘s super short, so we‘ll see)

PuddleJumper Good luck! 4mo

My #Roll100 picks for July! @PuddleJumper
13: Normal People
44: The Educated Imagination
75: Hounded
I hope I have the focus to get through these. July‘s a busy month, with homeschool supplies coming in and the year‘s plan to map out, and our first vacation in…possibly ever…at the end of the month, plus kiddo‘s birthday and tons of other extended family drama (guess who we‘re going on vacation with? Yay!)…I‘m trying to keep my goals low.

PuddleJumper Ooft, sounds busy and stressful! Hope it goes well 5mo

Normally I will replace them with other books in adjacent spots but I am so much behind that I will just take these and rejoice 😁

PuddleJumper @Kenyazero I read one and I think I've still got a March one to read 😂 7mo
claudiuo Yay, thank you so much for posting the numbers! Not that I read a lot, until now one roll-read a month was the best I could do but I love to have something to strive for. Thank you! 7mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I still haven't read my 85; I read my 54 for another challenge (Ivanhoe ended up being my BookSpin earlier this year), so I think I am going to focus on 96 and catching up on some backlog books!! It's a short one that I spontaneously bought from Book Outlet a while ago - 7mo

#roll100 choices! 🎉With so many TBR books on my shelves I doubled up listing two choices for each number.

49. The Valley of Horses — I read the other choice in January.

85. A Place Called Perfect OR Bunny — no idea yet which one I‘ll choose. Anyone have a recommendation?

100. Wolf Gone Wild — already read so I‘m substituting book 2: Don‘t Hex & Drive. 2nd choice is a Naomi Novik title which I want to save for August‘s #authoramonth

PuddleJumper Looks great! Valley of Horses is my favourite in that series 8mo
Melismatic Bunny is soooooo good - but very weird. If you don‘t love dark humor or horror, it could be a lot. 😂 8mo
MeganAnn @PuddleJumper I enjoyed the first book and keep meaning to get back to the series so this is a good push! 8mo
See All 6 Comments
MeganAnn @Melismatic good to know! I‘m not usually a fan of horror, but I can handle it sometimes with the right storyline. I do like dark humor and magical realism though so we‘ll see. The premise sort of reminds me of the movie Heathers from the late 80s which I love. 8mo
Melismatic @MeganAnn oh it‘s very Heathers! Mixed with The Craft. 8mo
MeganAnn @Melismatic well I also love The Craft so you may have just sold me! 😂 8mo

Happy #roll100 day! I‘m going to try for all 3, but we‘ll see how things go in April.

#49 is The Jungle Book
#85 is Eating Animals (will probably do audio for this one and, since I‘m currently in need of an audiobook, will probably start very soon)
#100 is As You Like It (thinking of doing an immersion read with this one: listen to a performance while following along/reading footnotes in print)

PuddleJumper Brilliant! Good luck! 8mo

We are testing out 3 rolls this month for #roll100 You can read all 3 numbers, or pick the ones you want.

Went with a purple theme for April with Hyperion, Enchantress, and Trick or Treat which was my first ever dice set. I bought a Halloween blind bag … and thus the obsession began!

Roll 1 – 49 (we had this in January so if you‘ve already read it pick the book above or below)

Roll 2 – 85

Roll 3 – 100

PuddleJumper @Read4life That's a great idea! 8mo
melissajayne So how this works is that I make a list of 100 books and you roll some dice and I read those books? If I have it correct, I will join in for May. 8mo
PuddleJumper @melissajayne Hi, essentially yes. The original post is here: https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2314575 It's just a fun way to read through TBR piles. I'll add you to the list, but feel free to join this month 8mo

Rolls going up early seems to be preferable to participants so here are the #roll100 rolls for March 2022!

March is spring time and green so naturally I went with my Cthulhu set and a set inspired by Caduceus Clay from Critical Role

Roll 1 = 5

Roll 2 = 28

Tag me @puddlejumper so I can be nosey and see what everyone is reading!

PuddleJumper Currently, I‘m only doing 2 rolls per month but I‘ve had some interest in doing more and then people can pick and choose which ones they want to read or read all of them. Let me know your thoughts as I‘m happy to accommodate whatever you guys want 9mo

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Omg, I was JUST thinking about this! 🤣😂 I was hoping they‘d go up before I posted my bingo list so that I could include the titles. 🥰 Drooling over your pretties as always! 9mo
claudiuo Thank you so much for doing this early! I will try to get the selections on my bingospin list. Gorgeous dice! 9mo
PuddleJumper @claudiuo It seems to work out well posting early so I'll carry on doing that. Less pressure on me to post on a certain day!

PuddleJumper @claudiuo 👍 Thanks! 9mo
PuddleJumper @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm They are super pretty! 😆 9mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! I'm so excited to see which books these are on my list!!! I'm fine with rolling more - maybe roll 3 and everyone tries to read 2 of the 3? Or something along those lines? In my experience, participants pretty much go with whatever you throw at them 😂 9mo
PuddleJumper @TheAromaofBooks Yeah, I was thinking if I do more people can pick what they want to do. More books is better than less books! 😅 9mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I second the rolling more! 👍 9mo
RaeLovesToRead Yaaaassss! This couldn't have worked out better! The Circle (also part of PopSugar challenge) and Stoner which I've been told is amazing!!! 9mo
ozma.of.oz Yay! Looking forward to this month! 9mo
Magpiegem Thank you! I‘m only half way through my first one for this month 😬 better get reading!! 9mo
PuddleJumper @Magpiegem I've still got one from last month I haven't read - didn't fancy it! 😅 9mo
Grrlbrarian NICE dice. And thank you!!! 9mo
Clwojick Oooh! Awesome! Thanks for the tag. 💖 9mo
Read4life Love the dice! Thank you for posting early. Book post to come. 🤓 9mo
DuckOfDoom The dice😍 and another critical role fan ☺️ 9mo
PuddleJumper @DuckOfDoom It's what got me into d&d and now I'm hooked 🤣 9mo
DuckOfDoom I totally understand! I love playing tabletop RPGs 9mo
jinxmoon How can it already be the end of the month again 🙈 9mo
shellleigh33 I‘m still reading my second book for this month but so glad to finally find a way to get books marked off my TBR list. Can‘t wait to get home and see what March books are on my list!! That‘s for this creative idea. 9mo
PuddleJumper @shellleigh33 You're doing great! I'm glad it is working for you 9mo

Going up early will be a trend of this challenge! Just because I put it up early doesn‘t mean the January one stops running, we‘ll have a little crossover period

February #roll100 has Pizazz, a newer set that I hate the name of but is glittery, and a set inspired by the character Caleb Widogast from Critical Role

Roll 1 = 36

Roll 2 = 90

I‘ve enjoyed seeing what people are reading so make a post and tag me @puddlejumper

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 10mo
kspenmoll Thanks! 10mo
Magpiegem Oooh! I‘ve been waiting excitedly for this! I‘ve loved the book it made me read this month! Xx 10mo
PuddleJumper @Magpiegem 😃 That's awesome! I'm glad you're enjoying it 10mo
Kangaj1 Yay! I only got to one of my Roll100 picks in Jan, but it was a 5 star read - The Lighthouse Witches. 10mo
PuddleJumper @Kangaj1 That's great! 10mo
claudiuo Thank you so much for the picks, I was just thinking today I need to wait 2 more days but, no, here they are. Thank you so much! Both picks are on my #BookSpin list, I started them already, maybe I will finish both this month, for a change: The Stone Sky by N. K. Jemisin and The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson. Thank you! 10mo
Smarkies Thanks for putting it up a little early. It helps with my planning. 😁 10mo
Whollybologna Excited to get started!! Thanks for tagging me! 10mo
Zuhkeeyah Hi! What exactly is roll100? I‘m having trouble finding the original post. 10mo
ozma.of.oz Woohoo! 🎉🎉 10mo
PuddleJumper @claudiuo Excellent, good luck! 10mo
PuddleJumper @Smarkies Haha, that's good! It's been falling on days in super busy so happy to keep putting it up early. Better than late! 10mo
PuddleJumper @Whollybologna Awesome. Hope you enjoy it! 10mo
PuddleJumper @Zuhkeeyah Oops, didn't put the link in the comments https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2314575 This should explain everything 10mo
Zuhkeeyah @PuddleJumper thank you! Sounds like a fun challenge. 10mo
PuddleJumper @Zuhkeeyah 👍👍 If you want to join you can join this month, no need to wait. It's a very relaxed challenge 10mo
audraelizabeth Is it okay if i read the books for this month later? Im filling in my list as i make this years tbr. Ive read books last month that werent the numbers pulled as well. 10mo
PuddleJumper @audraelizabeth Yes, of course. This is just a fun way to bring your TBR piles down. You make it work for you 10mo
audraelizabeth Okay, awesome. 10mo

#roll100 choices!

Since I had over 250 TBR books on my shelves I doubled up my list giving me two choices for each number. I can choose the one that most appeals to me that month, or I can read all four if time allows.

Roll 1: is either A Million Junes or Women Talking
Roll 2: is either The Valley of Horses or Severance

Right now I‘m leaning towards A Million Junes and Severance, but we‘ll see what the rest of January brings.

PuddleJumper Some very different choices there. Good luck! 11mo

I have a bunch of Imogen Robertson books on my shelves, no clue where they came from. It‘ll be good to read one and see if I like it! I don‘t tend to gravitate towards Victorian murder mystery … I say after reading a bunch of cosy Victorian murder mysteries

Wolfsong has been on my library list for ages. I‘ve ordered it, if it arrives in time then I‘ll read it otherwise I‘ll roll in into another month

This is going up a bit early because of New Year‘s but welcome to the first official rolls for #roll100

Starting off 2022 (kinda) with Muninn and Fossegrim because I‘m not allowed to roll these as a DM after a near TPK and yes, the sets have names

Roll 1 = 24

Roll 2 = 49

Make a post with the books you‘re reading, let me know if you finish them, whatever you feel like. Use @puddlejumper and I‘ll come and coo

EnchantedToReadYou If we signed up for four rolls when will you do the other two? 😂😅 I‘ve forgotten 2021 and am excited about my 2022 tbr! 11mo
See All 55 Comments
PuddleJumper @EnchantedToReadYou I'm only going to do 2 a month to start with. Most people wanted 1 or 2. I'm going to revisit that in a month or two because it is just as easy for me to do more rolls and let people pick the numbers. I just didn't want to overwhelm people at the start 11mo
Kangaj1 Ooohhh, I got The Lighthouse Witches and What Should Be Wild. Thank you for rolling! 11mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Preeeettttieeeessss! 🤤🎲❤️ 11mo
PuddleJumper @Kangaj1 Good luck! 11mo
claudiuo This is so cool, for the first roll to happen already!
I got [24] The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard and [49] Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. I will start with the second one.
Thank you so much, such a nice surprise before the end of the year! Happy 2022!
tokorowilliamwallace Well, first I have to make a list of 100 books I'd want to attempt this year---I probably already have 100 currently going in my possession, though! . . . 😅

I only have the BookSpin December list of 20.

Maybe 5 to 10 books from each genre, recommendations from others, and at least 1 themed book for each astrological sign, as I attempted to start August last year? I haven't even made my Capricorn list yet.
ravenlee Thanks for hosting this challenge! I‘m excited about it. My picks are the Wilson translation of The Odyssey and Harold Bloom‘s The Anxiety of Influence. 11mo
Deblovestoread I‘m going to play pretty losey goosey with this. My 2 books are Dreamland and Open Mic Night in Moscow. One of them will fill my Roll 100 slot for BookSpin. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 11mo
TheAromaofBooks Complete contrasts for me - First Date (romcom) and The Old Man & the Sea 😂 Super excited about this challenge!!! 11mo
PuddleJumper @claudiuo Happy 2022! Interested to know your thoughts on Rosemary and Rue, its been on my wishlist for awhile but my library doesn't have it XD 11mo
PuddleJumper @tokorowilliamwallace I was shocked that I had so many books I hadn't read! It is easy to collect them and forget about them 11mo
PuddleJumper @ravenlee Oh! I'd be interested in your thoughts on the Emily Wilson translation. I'm always curious about women's translations on classical literature because it is still quite rare, plus the Odyssey is my least favourite 'classical epic' 11mo
PuddleJumper @Kdgordon88 If it helps cut down TBR piles then it is all good 11mo
PuddleJumper @TheAromaofBooks 😂 Those are a bit different! 11mo
Whollybologna My two books are All the impossible things by Lindsay lackey and Tell Me by Lisa Jackson 11mo
tokorowilliamwallace @PuddleJumper, well I am at close 250 acquisitions for the year, so, yes, it's easy. But it's probably fair for me to skip the January rolls since I just now made my list, and waited to fill in the 2 rolls until I completed the rest of the list. As you probably have noticed, I did not complete the December BookSpin bingo numbers pulled. (edited) 11mo
tokorowilliamwallace @TheAromaofBooks, nice, I gotta get into some Hemingway and more 20th C.E. classics this year, to catch up with my lack during school age. 11mo
tokorowilliamwallace @ravenlee, nice, I've been meaning to acquire and read this Bloom volume/series for probably at least a decade. I hope we get a good comparative appraisal of this translation! 11mo
tokorowilliamwallace @claudiuo, ooh, I saw a Seanan McGuire volume I was curious about, so maybe I can go pick that up at the local used bookstore this first week of the year! 11mo
PuddleJumper @tokorowilliamwallace You do whatever you want. It is a chill challenge meant to clear down some TBR piles and let me roll my hundreds of dice 😅 11mo
claudiuo @PuddleJumper @tokorowilliamwallace The ebook I have includes a novella so started with that and I love the writing, as every Seanan McGuire book I've read. But if I had to chose right this moment, I would pick the Wayward Children series. 11mo
ravenlee @PuddleJumper @tokorowilliamwallace I‘ve had the Wilson Odyssey for ages now, so it‘s good to have a push to read it. I‘ve read the Fitzgerald several times, and have a collection of other translations, but haven‘t gotten to them. And Bloom is always interesting, if rather dense! At least Anxiety isn‘t long. 11mo
Leahkl I‘m absolute garbage at this app but I‘ll try to remember to post the books when I get home 11mo
RaeLovesToRead Woo! I got Big, Little Lies and Neurotribes... both books I wanted to read this year but didn't get round to!!! Really excited for this challenge!!! 11mo
tokorowilliamwallace @Leahkl, same. I feel you there. We'll learn and grow here together. I'm a late bloomer with everything, though 11mo
PuddleJumper @RaeLovesToRead Yay! That sounds great! 11mo
PuddleJumper @Leahkl No pressure to post or anything. Participate however you want 11mo
Sweetkokoro Just for clarity we are allowed to read other books we put on this 100 list even if it isn‘t rolled right? I have over 500+ books that need to be read (that I own lol) I‘m putting my list together now so I just want to make sure what‘s going on my list I can still read I have some priority series I want to finish this year. 11mo
PuddleJumper @Sweetkokoro Of course! It's all about clearing that TBR pile down. If you read a book on your list you can either assign a different book to that number or read the book above/below if that number is rolled. It's very laid back 11mo
Sweetkokoro Okay that sounds great! I‘m looking forward to this, I love how chill it sounds to keep up with! Also your dice are pretty! 11mo
KristiAhlers My selections are Risen and Fragile Eternity. Can‘t wait to get started 11mo
PuddleJumper @Sweetkokoro Thanks! A big part of this was so I could roll dice. I have so many that I never play with 🤣 11mo
PuddleJumper @KristiAhlers Ooo, nice! 11mo
SpookyMazeOfBooks Just post my 2 for 24 and 49 ,can't wait to start them 11mo
Clwojick Woohoo ! Looks like I have 20 Boy Summer and Before We Met. 11mo
Jrich21 My picks are The Beauty of Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibb and We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families by Philip Gourevitch. Adding them to my January pile! 11mo
PuddleJumper @Jrich21 Whoo! Happy reading! 11mo
melissajayne How do I join in? Can I join next month? 11mo
PuddleJumper @melissajayne There is a sign up form linked here https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2314575 I've added you to my list so you will get tagged next month 11mo
PuddleJumper @melissajayne You can join in this month too if you want. Just make your list and read your books. It's very low key 😂 11mo
Crazeedi I just found out about your #roll100 challenge. I am going to fill out form and I guess I'll jump in in February! I have so many tbr on my shelves now!! 11mo
PuddleJumper @Crazeedi Feel free to join in with January, you can just cheat a little bit when compiling your list 😂 11mo
RainyDayReading I just found out about this! I‘ve filled out the form but not sure I‘ll jump in this month. Depends on if I can get a list of 100 books together in the next few days. But I‘ll definitely join in for February! 11mo
PuddleJumper @RainyDayReading Getting the list together can be difficult! I've added you to my list so you'll get tagged next month but you can join in for January if you want to 11mo
Whollybologna I‘ve read both my books already… I guess I‘ll wait for the next roll ☺️ 11mo
PuddleJumper @Whollybologna 🤣 That was quick! That's great, two books off your TBR! 11mo

For anyone on Storygraph & doing @PuddleJumper ‘s #roll100 challenge, I created a challenge to track your list of 100 books. Thought if it might make it easier for me to track, it would probably help a few others too.

Deblovestoread Thank you! 12mo
PuddleJumper That's great! Thanks 12mo
