Grab a book, open to a random page (either by flipping through it, using a randomizer, or let my husband pick), and pick a part of the book that speaks to me (can be anywhere from 2 to 6 sentences), add a cover, done.

Edit: This used to be on Thursday, but I am changing it to Tuesday as it works better that way.

“Mom, are you crying? Please tell me that’s just rain on your face.”
“I’ve missed Mr. Samson,” Alisha said.
“Mother, he was a monster. And he’s been in his grave for a year. At least I thought he was in his grave. And, you’re driving around with him -no wait, he’s driving around with you in the truck?”

Grandma turns to her junior picture. The girls all wear black dresses with pearls. Grandma’s freckles pop out in the black-and-white picture. She’s adorable, but her hideously high hair finally makes me understand the term rat’s nest. It’s a less flattering style than I’ve seen on sixties-era TV shows, and looks especially bad on Grandma’s corkscrewed locks.
“What’s with the hair?” Ginnie asks. “Mallory, I won’t let you do that to yourself or the ozone.”
“It’s a bouffant,” Grandma says. “That was the style. My mother would do it for me every other day. I grew it out after high school, wore it really long and wild.”

I nod, soaked to the bone and shivering now. I’ve had enough for one day. I just want to get out of these clothes and sink into a hot, bubbly bath. I don’t even wait for Ryder to leave with the dogs – I start stripping down to my underwear right then, and there and race down the hall to my parents’ room.
I’m still in the big Jacuzzi tub when the power flickers -once, twice- and then goes out, leaving me in total darkness, chin deep in lukewarm water. I don’t know why, but it all hits me then -Nan’s surgery tomorrow, shooting that mocassin, this stupid never-ending storm. I start to cry, deep, gulping sobs. I know it seems childish, but I want my daddy. What if things get worse? What if the house starts to flood? Or the roof blows off? As much as I hate to admit it, I’m scared. Really scared.

I had Random.org select a random % for me and it thought 12% would be nice (I agree).
When her gaze settled on him, he caught his breath at the jolt of awareness that passed through his body.
Then she winked.
Startled, he laughed, and when she smiled in return, one full of misschief and barely leashed sensuality, he blushed like a virgin.

“How on earth are we supposed to do that?”
With a distraction. A spectacular distraction.
“What sort of spectacular distraction?” Alan Alan asked.
Drunk alpacas.
I chuckled. “I’m sorry, for a second there I thought you said “drunk alpacas”!”
That is what I said.

“Drew, Jess!” Zacheria barks. “You’re going to stand here. If we crop it well, it’ll look like the front door to a mansion. Ben!”
“Drew.” I turn to him mock-stern. “You’re going to sit on the toilet. If we crop it well, you’ll look like you’re sitting at a fancy French restaurant.”
“Jesse,” he says right back. “You’re going to get in the fountain. If we frame it right, it’ll look like an Olympic pool.”
We lean against each other in hysterics, eyes watering.

I had Random.org select a page number and it decided on page 207.

“Where are we?” Tanya asked.
“I told you,” Don said impatiently. We’re in an inbetween. It’s a sort of… pocket, if you like. Not quite our world and not quite the fairy realm, either, but somewhere, well… in between the two. Discreet and tucked away, for those who don’t want to be easily found. They can only be reached by certain portals which are also inbetweens.”

I flipped through the book and stopped at a random page, this turned out to be page 201.

It wasn’t until he started walking again that Scarlet released a captured breath. They’d been walking for hours without sign of another train, a cross-section of tracks, or civilization. On one hand, it was beautiful here – the fresh air, the wildflowers, the critters that came to the edge of the brush to watch Scarlet and Wolf before scurrying back into the ferns.
But on the other hand, her feet and back were sore, her stomach was growling, and now Wolf was telling her that the less loveable creatures of the forest were prowling nearby.

“Excuse me, Captain?”
“Si?”
“You’ve been to the Galápagos before, right?”
He chuckles. “Of course. Many times. I’m from Quito and my wife’s family is from Santa Cruz.”
“Captain Garcia is one of the most experienced cruise ship captains in Ecuador,” adds one of the junior officers.
Perfect. “So, what do you love about the Galápagos?”
“Hmmmm.” He flashes me a wide grin. “How long were you planning to spend on the bridge?”

Twilight felt a tingle begin to creep up from her hoovers, as if she had stepped into a cool stream on a warm summer’s day. She looked own and saw that there was only grass where her hooves should have been. It looked as if she were floating in midair.
