Theme Thursdays [Furniture] – 03Mar11

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.

The winner for last week’s meme participants is

Suzannah Burke from Soooz Says Stuff

You will receive a copy of “The Wedding” by Nicholas Sparks.

She’d had a dining room table made of cherry, and sheer curtains in the windows, but here the table wobbled and the chairs didn’t match, the windows were bare, and she and Jo would have to drink wine from coffee mugs.

    Here it is:

  5. It’s funny.. the book that I’m reading mentioned something about someone drinking wine out of coffee mugs too!!
    But for this week’s participation, I chose a sentence about “a drawer”.


  6. Congrats Suzannah!

    I won’t be participating this week due to illness.

    • Hi Sherrie
      Wonder why your comments went to my spam.. I had to go and retrieve all of them for them to be shown. Will wait and see if next week they appear without going to the spam …

      Thanks for joining.. Always a pleasure to have new people join in the fun.

  21. Hi. Just found your blog through Theme Thursday. Great idea.

  22. Realized I forgot to share my blog site:



  23. I found a good one in my current read, The Physick Book Of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe. When I read the excerpt I immediately thought of your meme and knew I had to come back and post an additional entry!

    “She settled onto an institutional lavendar sofa in the central reception area, enjoying the blissful sound of quiet. She let herself sink into the cushions, twiddling the tail end of her braid under her nose like a mustache.”

    Can’t you just picture this?!? I thought it was a great passage and wanted to share it…..
