Top Ten Tuesday--Favorite Authors


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)

Last Wednesday's RMQ was "I hate rude behavior in a man. Won't tolerate it." This was a hysterical line (and scene) said by Tommy Lee Jones playing Woodrow Call in Lonesome Dove.

Sydney of Starry Storm guessed it. Great job, Sydney!




Today's RMQ is,

"What the gods can digest will not sour in the belly of a slave."

One point possible for the film, one for the character, one for the actor. Hint: this is an older film. Like more than 50 years old. Hope that helps. :D Good luck!
