Thank you to all of the guest authors who participated in the one-liner blogs. I hope everyone had as much fun reading these as I did.

One-liners (Part 1)

We’ve all read them: those lines in a book that pop out at you and stick in your memory long after the last page. Some make you laugh; others make you think. Oh yes, and a few make you blush, too.

For this post, I’ve collected some of the best one-liners from a fabulous group of guest authors. I’ve also thrown in a line of my own from Switching Positions that others have told me they especially enjoyed. I hope you have as much fun reading these as I have.
