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 is: Conversation

From Modern Women by Ruth Harris

"'You're a Phi Beta Kappa college graduate and you're doing Charlie Lamb's filing!' said Becky Reese, the assistant to the director of the test kitchen. 'It's disgusting. You do the work and Charlie goes to lunch. I'm amazed you haven't shot him yet.'
"I've thought of it," admitted Lincky. "More than once.'"

pg. 60
