A Book Meme

I was tagged by Mog to do a book meme.

The deal is that you pick a book you are reading and turn to page 123. Then copy out the 6th, 7th and 8th sentence down from the top.

 I’m reading Before Green Gables (the prequel to Anne of Green Gables) by Budge Wilson. Some Anne fans are wary of this book but let me just say that it has been a delight to read. I have 100 more pages to go before I’m done and I don’t want to put it down. Budge Wilson has done a fantastic job in capturing our Anne and weaving some very heart-warming relationships around Anne before we see her in Avonlea.

Here are the sentences from page 123;

“I’m going to the Egg Man,” Anne shouted back. And then, unnecessarily, “For eggs.” She held up a cloth bag – now sodden from the snow.

I so want to add the whole paragraph but I’m going to stick to the rules.

If anyone wants to play along, let me know..

  1. Sounds fun. As someone who is reading lots of children’s books at moment (because I am trying to re-write one), how good is Anne of Green Gables (and the one you are reading now)?

  2. Ellen, you are one of my best resources when it comes to the treasure trove of books. You put me on to Elizabeth Goudge, and now you’re tantalizing me with an Anne book. Since I have time to read these days, I’ll have to look for this one as well.

    Hope your back is feeling better.
