  1. Take 5 books at random
  2. Book 1 - write the first sentence of the first chapter
  3. Book 2 - write the last sentence on page fifty
  4. Book 3 - write the second sentence on the hundredth page
  5. Book 4 - write the penultimate (2nd-to-last) sentence on page one-fifty
  6. Book 5 - write the final sentence of the book (of the story, not any advert at the back. You can't put "The End" either)

  5. The Dark Side of the Sun ~ Terry Pratchett (authour of Discworld)
