Well, I gave up on the random book plan. Didn't really bring me much inspiration, although was a pretty interesting exercise. This picture is from "Railway Motor Buses and Bus Services in the British Isles 1902-1933, combined edition". It's a Miles-Daimler from 1907.

Recently, I've got into this new routine to try and get some inspiration. During the morning, I use a random number generator to choose a number between 100 and 999, and then at lunch I go to the library and read whatever book is on the shelf according to that number.
One of the books I read was a dictionary of abbreviations, and while I looked through them, I was pleased to see that A Member of the Institute of Patenters and Inventors can have the initials "MInstPI" after his name.
