(Modified a bit from music4asoul's entry here)


  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)
  7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph and post here
  8. Do the same in your journal

My books (a randomly insane random collection):

  1. The Dilbert Principle ~ Scott Adams
  2. The Willows and Beyond ~ William Horwood
  3. Hacker ~ Malorie Blackman
  4. Convoy ~ Dudley Pope (the authour of Ramage)
  5. The Dark Side of the Sun ~ Terry Pratchett (authour of Discworld)

Ned suddenly heard his voice saying: ‘There's only one way of finding out, sir, and that's to sail in a convoy close to a Sweedish ship chartered by this same firm.’ Now, he thought, we will listen.
