Wednesday Words from May the fourth be with you

The best job ever for Brenda was volunteer work: one who wandered around the library and collected books left on tables..  Who would read this?  What a huge book!  Gotta write this one down!... Smells of old and new books were both invigorating and soothing.


The Orchid Thief
non-fiction
Pushing the shelving cart, Brenda grabbed books, reading titles aloud.

"Orchid Thief" Non-Fiction?


Glasnost, Perestroika, and the Socialist Community
A serious book about a serious time
"Glasnost, Perestoika and the Socialist Community"The spine is barely creased open.  Must be a very serious history.

"Vacation in Margaretville, New York"  A real page tuner.


A worthwhile read
"Walter the Farting Dog" Read this to my younger brother.  Never again.

"Wind Talkers" Saw the movie, Nicholas...what's his name..Cage? With Adam Sands?
Windtalkers (Score)
About noble Navajo changing the course of War
An excellent book
"Like Water for Chocolate" Mom was reading this one, once and then twice.


Nancy Farmer Website
"Scorpion" by Nancy Farmer" Loved this book! 

More time remained on her shift. Seeking out "The Islands of the Blessed" by Nancy Farmer, Brenda settled with a sigh, beginning with the first page.

The underlined words are Wednesday Words, 
a meme began by Delores who wanted to challenge
bloggers to enjoy a break from their chosen genre.
Fighting computer frustrations, Delores handed this
challenge off to various bloggers.

  3. What a clever use of the prompts.
    Some of the books I know and love, and others are treats (or otherwise) in store...

  6. Actually, "Like Water for Chocolate," one of my favorites.

    I didn't get around to everyone yet but I'm in the midst of a change. Sometimes we just HAVE to do that and then miracles happen.

      I loved "Like Water for Chocolate"!

  7. Wow, what a clever way to incorporate those words! I am duly impressed.

    I've never read the book about the farting dog, but we have certainly owned a few of them. :) As "sophisticated" as my sense of humor is, I suspect I'd love that book... I'll have to get it for my (ahem) grandkids...

  8. Hi Susan - I'm sure your students would latch onto "Walter the Farting Dog" - reminded me about a Shakespeare post I need to write! ... Congratulations on this creation for the Meme Challenge - so clever ... I loved Water like Chocolate ...

    Cheers Hilary

    1. When "farting " is one of the Wednesday words, Walter was the obvious choice.
