*Grab a book, any book.

(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

I'm still reading Valentine.

From page 127:

She carries a plastic food container in one hand and six Avon bags in the other. Three more gift bags are hidden in the heavy purse that hangs from one shoulder. It's hot as the devil's armpit out there, but Suzanne's red hair is tucked neatly behind her ears. her bright orange pedal pushers are freshly ironed, and her blouse is white as a magnolia blossom. Even out here on a hot and dusty football field, she wants her neighbors to say, Suzanne Ledbetter looks like she just stepped off an airplane.

I get a weird feeling out of this snippet. I don't know if I feel for this character, or if her stance irritates me!

I had to look up the book because the excerpt you shared had me curious. Sounds like quite a read. I am curious about this one. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great week.
