Where are those books?

Saw this at Planet GNOME and I really liked this idea,

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

So I go around searching for the "nearest" book. Damn, there are no books around in my office. /me wonders what happened to those nice thick printed manuals? Duh! paperless office....

Sigh.... Does eBook qualify for this?

OR..

You can use the same book like this:

Assume you book had 80 pages, then once u r thru with counting the 80 pages, start at the beginning this time from 81 so the 63rd page will have your solution.

This is how the ancient chinese use to work on maths, they call it zu-repetative-ki-iteration-yang
