Theme Thursday -- Furniture

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next. Hosted by Reading Between Pages. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

•A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
•Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
•Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
•It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This week’s theme is – FURNITURE

I thought it would be an easy theme but I had two books to work with and I still had trouble finding something.

What I came up with is this:

There were still a few tables dotted around, and one or two dusty chairs, but apart from that, the room was as empty as everything else around here – the cigarette machine behind the door, the reception desk at the end of the corridor, the leaflet rack on the wall. All empty.

It was a bit harder this week but that's part of the fun and I think we tend to overlook furniture when we read.
You found a good one!

I know this week was tough.. I struggled through mine as well, so glad you found something and this is a good snippet. Very apt for the theme.

Abandoned rooms make me nervous--and the one in your snippet is no exception!
