  1. Find a horror book.
  2. Take the first verb from the synopsis of book 1 and find a book with that verb in the title (if it does not have any verbs at all, select a random word by pointing at a random spot).
  3. Name the main color on the cover of book 2 and find a book by an author whose last name starts with the same letter as the color.
  4. See how many pages book 3 has and find a book in which a number of pages are mirrored (e.g. If book 3 has 412 pages, you look for a book with 214 pages).
  5. Take the country in which the author of book 4 was born and find a book that is set in that country.
