Book Meme

Tamara, over on A Woman of Noble Character , has a fun 'meme' for books.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the
nearest book (of at least 123 pages.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.


So, here it goes.
::: knocking over pile of books on the desk ::

Okay.

"The orchard, with its great sweeping boughs that bend to the ground with fruit, proved so delightful that the little girls spent most of the afternoon in it, sitting in a grassy corner where the frost had spared the green and the mellow autumn sunshine lingered warmly, eating apples and talking as hard as they could. Diana had much to tell Anne of what went on in school. She had to sit with Gertie Pye and she hated it; Gertie squeaked her pencil all the time and it just her - Diana's - blood run cold; Ruby Gillis had charmed all her warts away, true's you live, with a magic pebble that old Mary Joe from the Creek gave her."

Taken from our read aloud book,
Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery.

For tags, I pick Gina, Mandy, and Tena. I know that isn't 5, but it will have to do for now.

I have posted in reply to your tagging. Nearly grabbed a CTMH catalog as it was nearest, but decided it was ok to get an actual book. /giggle

Yours is so much better than mine! Mine had no context whatsoever without any surrounding paragraphs. But I was honest, and avoided using the novel on the other side of the room. ;-)
