Theme Thursday

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

•A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
•Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
•Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
•It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate."

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week's theme: Numbers



From Modern Women by Ruth Harris

"'My collection of Modern Library Classics even outnumbers my collection of cashmere sweaters,' she told her father, laughingly commenting on her dual obsessions."
pg. 44

Hi!
Great number. I'd take the classics over the sweaters. Have a great day!

My collection of classics definitely outnumbers my collection of sweaters (cashmere or not)!

Great number reference!

hehe - nice one! I think I'd strive to have a collection of classics before I had a collection of sweaters too - although shoes would be a different question ;)
