"Booking Through Thursday" "Theme Thursdays" Memes

While my town dries out of record-setting, epic flooding from Hurricane Irene, let me ask you:
What’s your book with weather events? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? Blizzards? Real? Fiction? Doesn’t matter … weather comes up a lot in books, so there’s got to be a favorite somewhere, huh?
My Favorite Book about weather related events is "Nights In Rodanthe," by Nicholas Sparks. I am not much of a re-reader of books, but this is the exception. A few years after I read the book the movie based on the book was released, therefore I re-read the book before seeing the movie.

Theme Thursdays [School] – 1Sept11

Theme Thursdays
Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event hosted by Kavyen here 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 will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors

SCHOOL (Anything related to school – teachers, students, children, books, desks, boards, pens etc )

"It's the faculty and staff exercise class," Mr. Rock whispered back to me. "They work out three times a week after school."

"Oh," I nodded. "They're working out. Is that what you call it?" pg. 75.

This is a book I will be sending my Grandaughter, who is 9 years old, in case you were wondering, "What is she doing reading a Henry Winkler book?"


  1. I have not read Nicholas Sparks in awhile. I just read about a blizzard.

  2. Even though I am not participating in the Bookin' Through Thursday event today, I noticed your answer and recalled Nights in Rodanthe. I haven't read the book...just saw the movie. Probably should read the book, huh?


  3. I've got Nights in Rodanthe on my must-read list (and the movie on my must-see list, too). Didn't know Henry Winkler wrote children's books - good for The Fonz!

  4. Great Theme Thursday snip-it!

    Here's mine:

  5. Hi!
    Good Theme Thursday. I've not read any of Henry Winkler's books, I'll have to check them out. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  6. I've read the book and saw the movie, good answer.

  7. I reckon it looks like a big kids book as much as a 9-year-old granddaughter's book and it will be great to talk about when you've both read it!

  8. That looks like a fun book! New follower!

    Here's mine

  9. I loved Nights In Rodanthe! I don't think I've seen the movie.

    Great book for a school theme.

  10. I love the book you chose for your theme thursday. If they work out 3 times a week they must be really fit. I want to get there soon !!!
