- A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
- 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 Drinks (tea, wine, beer, water, anything liquid).
Here is my selection from "The Murder at Troyte's Hill" by C. L. Pirkis in The Dead Witness: A Connoisseur's Collection of Victorian Detective Stories (p. 334):
"When shall I see Mr. Craven? At dinner to-night?"
"That's what naebody could say," answered Hales. "He may not come out of his study till past midnight; sometimes he sits there till two or three in the morning. Shouldn't advise you to wait till he wants his dinner--better have a cup of tea and a chop sent up to you. Madam never waits for him at any meal."
