- A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
- 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)
And this week's theme is Kid (child, baby, toddler boy, girl, etc.). Here's mine from Sherlock Holmes and the Treasure Train by Frank Thomas (p. 8):
It was still daylight when we descended from the hansom that had brought us back to Baker Street. I had my latch key ready, but was not allowed to use it for the front door burst open at our approach, revealing Billy. The page boy had evidently been waiting for our arrival from within. His face mirrored concern as he extended a telegram towards the great detective.
