Anderson's Mock Newbery List

It appears that many of my book buddies are asking the same questions about the 2012 Newbery Medal winner:

1. On January 23, 2012, will I feel happy/surprised/shocked/speechless?
2. Did I read the 2012 winner?
3. Have I heard of the 2012 winner?
4. Will I sleep during January?
5.Why do I care so much???

Anderson's Bookshop, the world's best bookshop, released its Mock Newbery list last month. The next five books I read will come from Anderson's list. How will I select the five books? I could read the list in alphabetical order by title. Or I could read them according to:

1. Page number count
2. Texture
3. Color
4. Publication month

I'm not really digging these ideas. What if I put the titles in a hat and randomly drew five titles? B-I-N-G-O, Mr. Schu!
