Randomize posts but keep pagination (1 post)

    My site is a directory of other websites, which I want to display in a random order to give all the listings equal exposure.

    Currently, I'm using <?php if ( is_home() ) { query_posts('orderby=rand'); } ?> right before the<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> line which works fine as long as all the posts are on one long page.

    I have about 25 listings now, and if I set it to 10 posts per page for example, then I get 10 random on the first page, but then on the second page I get 10 more pulled from the entire list of 25, rather than from the 15 not displayed on the first page. So there are duplicates between the pages.

    Is there a way to have it randomize all the listings, but then remember that order across the pages so each post is only displayed once per page?

    Thanks
