A Book Meme

I saw this on Winter Woman’s blog here.

The Rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book. (okay, I have a pile of books near me, picking one up. . .)
2. Open to page 123. (since my page 123 only has two sentences, I’m using page 122).
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

“There was a light snow a few days before, just a crust under the trees, and mud everywhere else. I was looking for fungas, ye know, the big orange things that grow on the trees low down, sometimes – and put my foot through a rind of snow into a patch of grass, growing in an open spot between the trees; reckon a little sun got there sometimes. Usually the deer find those patches. . . .”

Questions:

1. Do you know what book my quote comes from? (Hint: I’ve mentioned the author before as one of my favorites)!

2. Do you want to play (/procrastinate)?
