BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Quote-Tastic #5

Anna at Herding Cats & Burning Soup has created a new weekly meme. Want to join along?

  Click on the link above. Anna is posting hers on Mondays, as am I, but you can choose any day of the week that works for you. Leave me a link in your comment and I will check out your quotes!



A few years ago I was glomming books by Moira Rogers left and right. Recently I was perusing my collection of those books and started looking at my notes and highlights. This one is from "Cry Sanctuary", a paranormal romance with my favorite critters, werewolves!

"So what are we having for dinner?"

"I'm grilling steaks," she told him impishly. "Which means you're grilling steaks."

"Oh, Jesus. So that's why I'm getting an invite." He rolled his eyes and tossed an arm over her shoulder. "I see how it is."

"Yep. I'm using you for your ability to sear dead animals over an open flame and make them taste damn good."

"How manly of me." And the fact that he was hoping Abby would agree just proved how far gone he was. Offering food to impress a mate. How original.

If Cindy suspected his thoughts, she didn't show it. Instead, she counted off the side dishes on one hand. "And I'm making salad, baked potatoes and steamed vegetables. But I'll handle those. All you have to do is drink beer and cook a cow."

"Drink beer and cook a cow," he echoed. And try not to hump Abby's leg

It shouldn't have sounded so hard to manage.
