Theme Thursday: Birthdate




Hosted by Reading Between the Pages

Rules
*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
March is going to be all about making life easy. This month we will do ‘Pick what you see first‘ themes. So open the book you are reading, continue reading; pick the first mention of any name in it and post the snippet. The only condition is ‘No Ebooks’.. lets go traditional. Easy-peasy!!

And this week's theme is Birthday: First snippet from the page that is your birthdate.

Here's mine (the first!) from Dead as a Dinosaur by Frances & Richard Lockridge:

Detective Vern Anstey of the Tenth Precinct listened with politeness, although almost from the first he had realized that what he was up against was one of those things. New York was full of those things, and always had been and always would be.

It's amazing how many of these snippets are intriguing...even though they're totally random.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

Wonder what 'one of those things' is?
