Match Game 647

You may have seen the following internet meme on facebook this week, "It's International Book Week. The rules: Grab the book closest to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence as your status. Don't mention the title and post the rules as part of your status."  While there is no "International Book Week," this is still a fun game to play.  

I asked my BWOBNY friends for their page 52, 5th sentences here and I thought we'd play a little match game.  No, not Match Game 67 although that is an awesome game show.  Consider this Match Game 647 (our old store number.)  Just try to match the quotes with the books and authors listed at the bottom.  We'll post the answers on our facebook page this evening.

The Quotes

1.  "I'm entertained by the way Michelle chops her hands through the air as she's explaining the plan for a separate wing when the exhibit arrives, and how she prefaces many of her sentences with, 'I mean, look."

2.  "The crack of my windshield sounded like the hammer of my brother's .357 Magnum, and the splintering of the safety glass made me squeeze the steering wheel like an orangutan strangling a kitten."

3.  "I feel as if I'm dead to the world."

4.  "After brushing his teeth over the cracked basin, he locked the glass door, set his alarm clock and undressed."   

5.  "Still wrapped in her luxe hotel room with a diamond ring wedding band on her left finger, Andy reminded herself not to indulge in revisionist history." 

Book & Author 

A.  The Cuckoo's Calling, Robert Galbraith aka J.K. Rowling

B.  97 Orchard Street, Jane Ziegelman

C.  Revenge Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger

D.  The Chaos of Stars,  Kiersten White

E.  Killing yourself to Live, Chuck Klosterman.

For bonus points, try to guess which bookseller suggested which book: Rachel L., Jess P., Jenn N., Grammy T, and Rebecca T.
