Books That Make Me Go....Ahhhh

I know I missed posting my notable excerpt last week, but I am back in the game this week!  If part of a book made you stop, and enjoy the beauty of the prose, please feel free to include the excerpt in the comment section below.

I found myself highlighting the section below that was found while reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese:
What a journey...what a day...what madness, so much worse than tragic!  What to do except dance, dance, only dance...

I'm with Kathy. I didn't love this one either. I enjoyed parts of it and the writing was pretty good but I didn't like where the story ended up.

Actually I'm with both of you on this one! There are little snippets that I enjoy, like the one I posted here, but otherwise I find a lot of the book to be...um....boring!

This was a very good book, but not in an "oh, my gosh! I simply HAVE to keep reading!" type of fashion. I WAS interested, but I wasn't totally pulled in. There were tons of snippets of great writing, though!

Tips For Warehouse Management Software Raymond Training Classes Roller conveyors are one of two main types of conveyor systems. Roller systems may be non-powered (gravity) or powered. Gravity systems are used mainly for accumulation of materials, whereas powered systems can be used for accumulation and merging/sorting. Roller Conveyors are sold in various roller centers. A roller center is the measure from the center of one roller to the center of the next. This is a very important figure as having too large of a roller center causes boxes to submarine. Transporting a flexible package (i.e. bags of materials with non-rigid bottoms) requires four rollers under the package while a rigid package requires only three rollers.
