Theme Thursday - Building

This is a new meme hosted by kavyen at Reading between Pages.. “Theme Thursdays” will be open from one Thursday to the next and anyone can post it. The rules are simple:

* A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
* Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
* Post it and don’t forget to mention the author and the title of the book
* It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
* Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week’s theme is – Building

"Perhaps they thought serpents were more likely to find refuge in our backyard because our house, unlike theirs, was built for natives, not Europeans, a big open bungalow of nipa and wood that let in the heat, wind and rain without hindrance, plus spiders, scorpions, bats, lizards,frogs and snails."
