Editado: Set 8, 2022, 2:44 pm

Easy Rules:*

1. Grab the book you're currently reading.
2. Find a quote which answers the question in the post above yours.
3. Tell us what book you're quoting (include author's name).
4. Find another quote from the same book (a question this time) for the next poster to answer.

Hint: It's really great if both your answer and question are related, but that's not absolutely necessary.

*Newbies welcome!
