Quick Quotes

Quick Quotes is back for the Spring Term!

This is based on the game Bring Your Own Book. We'll be posting a new prompt each week, and you'll then be tasked to grab any book you have on hand and have a flip through it to find a suitable quote and post below.

We’ll also be giving out 10 beans per quote, so be creative!

Without further ado, our first prompt is:
The name of an all-purpose household cleaner

As an example, from Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (which just happens to be the book for our February Monthly Book Discussion!)
"POWDERED HENS' TEETH"
We ask that the quotes you post (and the books they come from) are HOL-appropriate. Should your quote not meet this criteria, we reserve the right to delete your post.

If you have any suggestions for prompts, please send us an email at hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (removing the spaces) with the subject "Quick Quotes Suggestions".

Remember to click "Subscribe Forum" in the box up at the top left - Topic tools - (next to "Post Reply") so you get notified of new prompts - as well as what others have come up with.
