  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)

This week's theme is SCHOOL (or anything related)

"Have I told you what happened to my cousin Laila? When she and her brother were fighting, pushing and pulling each other, over a pencil? Her brother poked her in the eye with that cursed pencil."
p5, The Writing on my Forehead, by Nafisa Haji

I can't say I envy teachers!!


  1. I love the title and the snippet. So creative. Good job! I have always said I would never be a teacher. I really admire what they do but I'd never be able to do it.

  2. Interesting excerpt! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  3. Yikes, a painful one. I hope the eye was not hurt too much. Surely a cursed pencil..
