>Weekly Geeks # 9 – A Quote a Day.

>This week´s task is to post a quotation every day for a week:

“You may want to come up with a theme, such as favorite passages from books, author quotes, political quotes, quotes about books or reading, humorous quotes, whatever. Or you may not want a theme at all; maybe you just want to gather up seven assorted quotes that appeal to you. You may want to start each of your posts of the week with a quote, or you may want to give quotes posts of their own in addition to your regular posts. It’s all up to you!”

Without having a clear plan in my mind for the whole week, I have decided to start out by giving you a short appetizer for tomorrow´s post:

“Dora´s manner, when she came down, was injured and distrait, but the chief inspector had been married for thirty years and had seldom permitted petticoat government.”

Weekly Geeks # 9 – et citat om dagen …

Ugens opgave går ud på at bringe et citat hver dag, enten som et selvstændigt indlæg, eller integreret i ugens øvrige indlæg. Jeg har ikke lagt nogen slagplan for hele ugen, men lægger ud med en appetitvækker til morgendagens indlæg:

“Doras væsen, da hun kom ned, var såret og fjernt, men kriminalinspektøren havde været gift i tredive år, og havde sjældent tilladt noget skørteregime.”

    >I suppose the chief inspector won’t go easy on her, will he? Thanks for visiting me.

    >Norman, my little riddles are certainly not worse than the ones you set😀 Glad you are taking up the quotation meme. Rikki, you are welcome. And you can both learn loads more about the relationship between Dora and her chief inspector tomorrow.

    >Glad you like my quotation. And I think (hope) that my posts about Reg Wexford may appeal to a broader public than my ordinary crime fiction reviews as they focus on the development of a literary character over time, rather than crime.
