Can I let you in on a little secret? Okay, it’s not really a secret, as I’ve mentioned it here before, but I have a bit of an obsession with the Literary Slap. And even though I love talking about the outsides of books, I thought I might be nice to insert a little bit of what I like on the insides of books.
Over the past two years, I’ve been collecting photos of the Literary Slap. I don’t know what it is about this expression, but I love it. (Side note: I am not a violent, slap-happy person.) See if you can guess which books these below passages come from. I would reward you with a prize except I only
remember know two of them — aside from the blatantly obvious one.
What about you? Are there any literary phrases or expressions you can’t get enough of? Or any that you wish could be banished from the English language?
