Theme Thursday: Touch


Hosted by Reading Between the Pages


RULES:
* A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
* Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
* Post it and don’t forget to mention the author and the title of the book
* Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week

This week's theme is TOUCH. Here's mine from You Can Die Laughing by A. A. Fair (aka Erle Stanley Gardner) [p. 30]:

Corning started to say something, checked himself, threw me to one side over against Bertha's desk, twisted the knob, yanked the door open and stalked out of the office.

I think I'd only make him mad once!

What fun reading all the different interpretations. Sounds like someone is having a hissy fit in yours.
