Theme Thursday: Love

Hosted by Reading Between the Pages

A brand-new meme brought to my attention by Freda's Voice.

* 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, appropriately, is LOVE.

Here's my snippet from Something New by P. G. Wodehouse (p 85-6):

In every man's life there is generally one moment to which in later years he can look back and say, "In this moment I fell in love." Such a moment came to Ashe now....In the almost incredibly brief time which it took the small but sturdy porter to roll a milk-can across the platform and bump it with a clang against other milk-cans similarly treated a moment before, Ashe fell in love.

I haven't read P G W for years - it's probably time I did. Wonderful quote.

I've still got your review for this one up in a tab, awaiting a vacancy in my library holds account. :) And can I just say that I hope for another moment like that in my life again someday?

Here's mine:
