The countdown continues as the Big Day draws nearer and nearer. Woo and also Hoo! I’ve been re-reading the entire series (now on Book 8, Proven Guilty) and it’s been even more fun than the first time. I started these books twenty years ago, and read each one as it was released, and my tiny little brain has lost track of many, many details. My knowledge of the main players is cemented in my head forever, but plot lines and individual villains Harry has faced over the years have gone pretty far astray. I’m so glad I decided to re-read the whole thing, and even more glad that authors Mae Clair and Harmony Kent are reading along with me. We have loads of fun talking about the various happenings and the many, many funny lines in these books–which brings me to today’s post.
I guess I could call this one, “In His Own Write,” if John Lennon hadn’t already beaten me to that title, because I want to focus largely on my favorite Dresden Files quotes today. I have some memes from around the web for you, and several from a new series I’m doing for my own pleasure. (When I can’t find the quote I want done up pretty, I make my own.) Hope you’ll enjoy them all!
Found these on Jim Butcher’s Website (jimbutcher.com)
And a Couple More From Various Places Around the Web
(There are thousands of these out there!)
And Here Are a Few I Made Myself from My “Riveting Quotes” Series
One more note for this week. Cleverly hiding
on my bookshelves, I found four additional anthologies that
contain Dresden Files stories for those interested:
My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding (2006)
My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon (2007)
Strange Brew (2009)
Naked City (2011)
I forgot that I owned all of these anthologies in print. Doh! But I can attest to the fact that there are some excellent stories in them, well worth reading. Jim Butcher is as excellent at writing short stories as he is at full-length novels. It involves a whole different skill set, in my opinion, and he’s got it down pat! Most of the ones I shared last week and today are available in Kindle format on Amazon, and some are still available in print. You might want to check them out. 🙂
And that’s all for today, folks. Hope you got a chuckle or two from the quotes. Next week, I’m planning something very different, but I’ll let you wonder for now just what it might be.
Thanks so much for helping me pass the time until Peace Talks arrives!
Bob the Skull and I will see you in a week!
