OK, something else to do with what you're reading; given that in fifty years or so the books has been reviewed to death and beyond... not that reviews aren't valuable...

Pick a passage, any passage. Say no more than a couple of paragraphs - and "Young James Bond" it!

So, say for the bridge game - instead of bridge, play snap. Or Pog. Or marbles, something like that. Or the car chase - pedal cars...

Try to keep as much of the structure of the original as possible... but see what you can replace with some judicious (or injudicious) YJB-ing.

The two small wads of moist toilet paper roared simultaneously.
The walls of the common room took the squelch of sound and batted it to and fro between them until there was silence. Master Bond watched the cheap cigarette smoke being sucked from every end of the room towards the open windows. The memory in his right hand of how he had drawn and fired with one clean sweep from the left made him confident. He holstered his pea-shooter and waited while Matherson Jenkins-Smyth walked the twenty paces towards him through the cheap-smoke filled atmosphere of the common room.

Bond saw that Jenkins-Smyth was grinning through his acne.
