    like the tile says.. post quotes/passages from a book that you are CURRENTLY reading. not one from the past.

    This one just made me laugh..

    Mc transported to different world. in our world he had just won a sword fighting competition. He just cut off a guys arm.. Now for the quote..

    "“Sorry!” Liam exclaimed – the first, stupid thing that came into his mind. Part of him half expected a ref to spring out of the woods and shout: Foul! Foul! Improper dismemberment! You're disqualified, Vanderbilt!"

    Woman is talking to MC via a untraceable vid link.

    “As an engineer, I can appreciate it the cunning of it, but as the woman that was sent here to stop you, it really pisses me off!” she shouted. “You’re giving me gray hair, human! And you’re making me look bad! I can’t believe that an elite team of Black Ops engineers just got the absolute shit stomped out of them by a self-trained newbie Terran and his box of f**cking marbles! MARBLES! Do you have any idea how humiliating that is? DO YOU!?”

    Jason almost fell out of the chair laughing."

    Context.. "Marbles" Think about that ball from the movie men in black that bounced all over the place. Now. Make that ball into the size of a Marble. Make it pretty much indestructible. Toss almost 800 of them into a enemy Space station. Let them loose.................................. :) FUN!!

    “Fire at will,” Brad said savagely.
    “I have no idea what everyone has against that Will guy. First salvo away.”

    Context: space mercenary company is going after space slavers. The dry wit in that bit about firing at will just made me snort a bit.

    From the book Heart of Vengeance by Glynn Stewart (one of my favorite sci-fi authors) and Terry Mixon (another good author)

    Context: female midshipman having her first hand to hand lesson courtesy of a shipboard marine complement on a spaceship.

    From the book Into the Dark, by J.A. Sutherland. First thing I've read of theirs and it's very much literal sailboats in space.

    Dammit, Daigon...That got a few of my voices having a discussion, one of which is sitting at the back of my skull giggling away going, "Jokes on her, that ain't Hawking she's talking to..."

    "It has often been said Watson, that the ear is the gateway to the soul."

    "The Eye."

    "What?"

    "The eye Holmes, The eye is the gateway to the soul!"

    "Egad Watson! don't be disgusting! Anyway it's the ear I assure you"


    From the book Warlock Holmes, he is explaining to Watson why he made him a necklace... out of the three bones in the middle ear (malleus, incus, and stapes) and coated it in Watson's ear wax... that he's been harvesting for weeks!

    “The pool,” said Kallorek, pointing. “The pool, right there.”
    “You mean the pond?”
    “I mean the pool,” growled the booker. “Get in. Swim.” He accompanied these words with effusive gestures that set his jewelry ringing.
    Clay examined the pond. “Swim to where?” he asked.
    “What do you mean swim to where?” Kallorek’s brow deepened.
    “Is it a healing spring?” Gabe asked. He flexed his arm, wincing as he extended it fully. “Because I think my elbow—”
    “Listen, f**k your elbow!” Kallorek blew up. Clay had forgotten how short the booker’s fuse was. That big toothy smile one moment, and the next …“It ain’t a spring, or a pond, or a godsdamned sea nymph’s bathtub. It’s a f**cking pool. Just a pool! You swim around in it to relax.”
    Nicholas Eames, Kings of the Wyld

    “Damn, what in the hell are you?” Jatal asked as I sprinted out of the side tunnel and met with the group.

    “He’s a f**cking walking tiger-man with a shotgun. Keep moving!”

    From the book You're Not Allowed to Die by Kip Terrington.

    I've been avoiding Star Justice. Amazon seems to think I'll like it, but "paranormal space opera romance" hits my no no buttons.
