How can I set up a new Google account without a phone number?

I don’t own a mobile phone and I have no wish to share my home number with Google, but if my account is locked for any reason that is how I would have to go about unlocking it. Or if I wanted to create a new account.

Is there a way around this? Could I install Skype and have them send me the text to that?
