Quote Chain

Over at Mommy Knows she’s doing a fun little quote game.  I thought I’d post it here and see what happens.

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 11.
  • Find the eleventh sentence.
  • Post that sentence in a comment here; include the title of book and author.
Mine is from “One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez 
(For those of you checking, yes, it is different from the book I quoted at Mommy Knows.  I’ve moved, and this one was now closest)
” With that precaution they tried to postpone the necessity of having to eat macaws, whose blue flesh had a harsh and musky taste.”
That’s uplifting, isn’t it? I haven’t read this book yet, but it’s on my list of books to read.  I also want to read “Love in the Time of Cholera” also by Marquez.

  1. Quote: Pollyanna, playing the glad game, sneered the Joy who was miffed.
    Title: On Strike for Christmas
    Author: Sheila Roberts

    I thought this book would be ‘blah’ and a bit of mindless entertainment. It turned out to be a fun read. Laughed out loud.

  2. Oh dear, I’m afraid I should have done this from home…. but since I’m at work, here goes:
    QUOTE: “Such nouns [nouns used as adjectives] are extremely useful because, as in this case, English often does not have an adjective form with the same meaning as the noun.”
    Title: Shipley Associates Style Guide
    Author: Lawrence Freedman, PhD; Terry R. Bacon, PhD

    he he he…

  3. “When measuring brown sugar, pack into cup so it will hold shape when turned out.”
    The American Women’s Cookbook (1968) (aka – one of Mom’s old cookbooks)
    Culinary Arts Institute

    I had to go to page 15, as the first 14 pages are all Table of Contents :P
    and leave it to me to have a cookbook closest to me!
