There were all these things that I was going to post over the weekend–or the four days between “Mystery Quote” and book reviews–but in the end I just ended up posting the last part of my story for Module 8–even though none of you would admit that you thought I posted too much. Somehow some of those just weren’t posting days, so I didn’t post. Did that make any sense? Probably not. Ah well.
So here we are with “Mystery Quote” again and,
Last week’s quote was from The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes. You can read my book review of it here. Juliana guessed both the book, and that the ‘she’ was Maddie. Great job!
Sounds like several of you had read the book, but didn’t catch this one. I’ve found you have to know a book really well to be able to recognize an individual quote from it! Leah‘s done all kinds of quotes from books I’ve read that I didn’t get because I’d only read it once!
Yes, I read a lot of books twice. . . or three times. . . or four. . . or five. . . or six. . . or seven. . . etc. #I’mWeirdLikeThat
Anyway, this week’s quote:
“You precious chick! Who put that into your head?” said [she]. . . “‘Tisn’t in mine head; it’s in mine mouf,” answered [he], putting out his tongue, with a chocolate drop on it, thinking she alluded to confectionery, not ideas.
Happy guessing! 🙂
P.S. Speaking of quotes, I have a new favorite from Flower Patch Farmgirl:
I’m way inside my head and it’s all fine and well, but I’m going to have to eventually come out. It can get a little wonky in here.
