Guess a Quote (6.16.14)

Question MarkThis has been a fun, unique week here on Leah’s Bookshelf. The Help Me Name “Little Friend” post and Relationship Themed To-Read List were both new-to-the-blog type posts. I enjoyed trying something new, and I hope you did too. (Did you?) As I prepare to outline and write a new book, I’m also making plans to include all of you in that process. No, I won’t be constantly updating you on my word count or sharing writing tips. This is a blog for readers after all. Instead I’m hoping to let you get acquainted with the characters through some fun games, surveys, and more. It’s all still in the planning stages. Help Me Name “Little Friend” was the first step, though. If you already voted, be sure to leave a comment so you get credit for it.

Last week’s quote came from Heidi, by Johanna Spyri. Since the books we read were translated from the original German text, different editions read a little differently. Morgan Huneke, Ella, and Hanna R. guessed it right despite that added challenge. Fun fact about this book. I misread the authors name as “Johann” instead of “Johanna” for most of my life. When someone referred to the author as “her”, I was shocked! 🙂

Here’s a real “flash from the past” for this week’s quote. Those with young siblings may have an advantage with this one.

“I think I will sit on it a little while longer,” said the duck, “as I have sat so long already, a few days will be nothing.”

Happy Guessing!

  1. I knew it sounded like Heidi! Can’t believe I forgot to leave a comment. 😛 🙂

  2. “The Ugly Duckling”, by Hans Christian Andersen. (The most disney-adapted author!)

  3. Hanna R

    The new quote sounds familiar, but I can’t place it. I personally think I cheated on the last “Guess a Quote” because I only guessed it because of someone else’s comment!
    I have enjoyed the new types of posts! Especially “Help Me Name Little Friend”! That is such a fun idea! I love reading your blog!

    • That is called making good use of the clues available, and it’s perfectly legal. 😉 It makes things more fun.

      I’m glad you enjoyed them! Especially since I’m hoping to expand the focus on my stories a bit. Really hoping everyone responds well to that idea.

  4. “Instead I’m hoping to let you get acquainted with the characters through some fun games, surveys, and more.” —That sounds really fun! If I’m not writing, the next best thing is sharing the experiences of other writers 🙂
