Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme that Proud Book Nerd hosts.

How to play along...

Take the book you are currently reading and open it to a random page. Share the third full sentence on that page. (If there isn’t a third one – like at the end of a chapter or a blank page – you can share the third sentence of the book or just choose another random page.) Feel free to share more than one sentence, if you feel the need to do so.

  1. Share your thoughts, if any, on the sentence.

  2. Post a link to your blog post in the link list below. Don’t forget to link at Proud Book Nerd's blog, too! (There is a button in the sidebar to the right.) If you don’t have a blog, just leave it in the comments there.

  3. Visit one or two of the other blogs to check out their third sentence(s).

“‘The mind drinks in less and less. Impatience. Nervous impatience. Time to kill. No work.’”

A Pleasure to Burn

by Ray Bradbury

My husband recently bought this for me because I’m such a huge fan of both Ray Bradbury and Fahrenheit 451. Quotes like this capture the very reasons I love his work. I’m sad to hear that he passed away on Tuesday, but he’s done so much and inspired so many people and lived a long time. I can’t wait to get started on this book!
