Booking Through Thursday: I Challenge You

Pin It

Booking Through Thursday

  • Pick up the nearest book. (I’m sure you must have one nearby.)
  • Turn to page 123.
  • What is the first sentence on the page?
  • The last sentence on the page?
  • Now . . . connect them together….
    (And no, you may not transcribe the entire page of the book–that’s cheating!)
Aha! An easy one:

"I am," I say. Mankind has veered off course in terms of lifelong mating.

There it is. I'm wondering how I'm going to comment on the other posters. Hmm. That's from Ask Again Later by Jill A Davis. I'll be writing a review of this book later today. Stay tuned.

What else can I say? I made some bookmarks for my Etsy shop, if you're interested. And tune in tomorrow for guest blogger Linda Wisdom, author of 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover.

Hurray for shameless self-promotion!

EDIT: I totally missed the point of this question! Here we go:

"I am," (I say) she said. "I never said I wouldn't"

"Well then why don't you come over here and prove it." He glared at her reflection in the mirror.

"You're not the boss of me!"

He took two giant steps toward her, lifted her from her feet and tossed her onto the bed. Ha ha, she thought. Men are so gullible.

Rick sighed to himself. Mankind has veered off course in terms of lifelong mating.

I don't know where that came from!

  2. Great job, Chris. Now...just extend it to 1000 words, make sure it has a HEA, and send it to LASR for a short story submission ;-)

  3. I think a whole lot of people had different interpretations of the question, which made the answers diverse and all the more interesting to read.

    Loved yours though. Happy BTT! :D

  4. Nicely (re)done. And it's true, what Den said -- I do want to know what happens next! At least for the people who got the point...
