- 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 Time (hour, minutes, seconds, duration, etc). Here's mine from Some Danger Involved by Will Thomas (pp. 142-3):
I awoke several hours later. The room was dark, save for a shaft of moonlight coming in from the back window. The beam illuminated my employer, who sat in my desk chair by the window, fiddling with some coins in his hands. He was deep in thought, as far as I could tell. What had brought him here? Ah, yes. The shooting. I'd almost forgotten. Was he standing guard? If so, he was a little late.
"What o'clock is it?" I asked
"Almost ten," he responded. "How do you feel?"
