Theme Thursday: Come

Hosted by Reading Between the Pages

*A theme will be posted each week on Thursday
*Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from your current book that features the theme
*Post it and don't forget to mention the author and title of the book
*Event is open for the whole week
*Link back to Reading Between the Pages

This week's theme is Come (came, arrive, coming, etc).

This was a difficult theme for me this week--maybe because I'm reading nonfiction. Here's what I was able to find in Proust & the Squid: The Story & Science of the Reading Brain by Maryanne Wolf:

Then, after you integrated all this visual, conceptual, and linguistic information with your background knowledge and inferences, you arrived at an understanding of what Proust was describing: a glorious day in childhood made timeless through the "divine pleasure" that is reading! (p. 10)


Visual cells possess th capacity to become highly specialized and highly specific, and to make new circuits among preexisting structures. This allows babies to come into the world with eyes that are almost ready to fire and that are exceptional examples of design and precision. (p. 12)
