Theme Thursday

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event hosted by Reading between the pages that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • 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)
This week's theme is NEW (fresh, newest, latest etc)

Just as teardrops, when they are large and round and compassionate, can leave a long strand washed clean of discord, the summer rain as it washes away the motionless dust can bring to a person's soul something like endless breathing.  That is the way a summer rain can take hold in you - like a new heart, beating in time with another's.
The elegance of the hedgehog, Muriel Barbery

Oh, this looks like a good book meme to participate in. Will try to catch something for next week. :D

I only did my Theme Thursday post today, so if you wanted to do one this week it's not too late. :)
