I decide on an adaption to the meme that isn't EXACTLY per instructions, but is still within the spirit of the project. I will use the last book I touched. Today that happens to be a vintage children's book I picked up just an hour or so ago at a local thrift store. I intend to use its Bobbsey Twin-ish illustrations to make notecards. Here is the brilliant dialogue offered for your intellectual dissection...
"They were delighted to find that there was very little damage. It was badly scratched, but Aunt Patricia's father said, "With a fresh coat of paint it will look like new." "Come on, Aunt Pat," said Eddie, "Let's explore. Maybe a lot of valuable property was washed up in that big storm."
And I end there. You will never know what happens next. Do Aunt Pat and Eddie discover buried pirate treasure? A dozen pair of Nikes? A giant Lego man, perhaps? You'll have to stumble across your very own copy of Annie, Pat and Eddie by Carolyn Haywood to find out...
Since I have no way to know who likes to play these fun little games, I'm going to invite all readers interested in participating. Simply post your Book Meme entry according to the rules below to your own blog. Then leave a comment here with a link to your blog so we can all come see if you keep a better class of reading material close at hand than I do! :)
