Theme Thursdays [Recreation] – 18Aug11

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

RECREATION (Any spot that you would go for a break – Parks, resorts, even a library ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I had to search for this high and low. After reading an entire book and finding nothing satisfactory I picked the second book and found this snippet, eventually.

PS: The Linky should be up next week. Also, please give me some suggestions for themes. Pretty Please!


When we returned from the park, Nana had already put Little Alex to bed. She was back sitting on the porch. I’d brought a pint of pralines and cream and a pint of Oreos and cream.

  1. Well, even if it took you two books, you found a great example! Its themes like this that make me really glad I am using a Kindle! Just had to do a search for the word “park” and it found me an example from further into the book I’m reading. ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. I thought this would be too hard for me this week, but I was able to find one. My answer is here

  3. Wow, this was a hard one! But, I’m sorry, no park or anything remotely close in my book this week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Here’s mine: http://sinnfulbooks.blogspot.com/2011/08/theme-thursday_17.html

  4. It took me a while, but I think I found a good one:

  5. Wow! This was the toughest one so far I think and I’ve failed miserably! Love your snippet though – especially the Oreos… mmmm


  6. The Book Gatherer did not fail. It fit the theme. I love yours only now I want ice cream and it only 8 am. Does ice cream count for breakfast? It has milk. LOL.
    Mine is from a spoof of a Disney vacation.

  7. This one was really hard, considering what my book is about. I finally found something that will work for this theme though.

  8. I’m kinda late today, I’m sick, I’m on holidays and I have two young boys! LOL


  9. Good theme.
    Here’s my Post for this week.

  10. This was a tough one… I didn’t think I’d find anything on the book I’m reading but then I remembered it contained a snippet about one of my favorite places to just walk around. ๐Ÿ˜€


  11. So I looked and looked too and finally settled on something that’s a little cheating for me, lol.


  12. Good job! Unbelievable that it took two books to find, although it did take me awhile to find it too. Here is mine: http://hardcoverfeedback.blogspot.com/2011/08/theme-thursday-recreation.html
