Sometimes the Random Passage is One of the Best

Over at Chicken Spaghetti is a challenge to pull a passage from the nearest book. I followed the instructions to the letter, and here is what I got (from Honestly, Katie John):
She stopped her bike and stood looking at a small but especially beautiful maple tree that stood alone, taking in its flaming glory. Compelled, she dropped her bicycle at the roadside and climbed over the ditch to the maple. Scooping up some leaves from underneath it, she let them shower over her head and shoulders, holding some in her hands.

"Is this how it feels, tree?"

I think this fits quite nicely with my current obsession with Autumn and with the Best Passages contest. Have you submitted your entries yet?

Thanks for this Susan!

Nancy, it's fun, isn't it? I picked up the meme at Mental Multivitamin.

What a great passage Nancy!

Here's mine, from "The Wizard of London" by Mercedes Lackey.

Isabelle wrinkled her brows. "But how can we possibly discover that?" she protested. "It would be like trying to find footprints after the tide has washed them away! Even if children have been--murdered--how could we find out who they were and what they could have been had they grown up?"

As I'm on page 87 right now, and that's from 123, I'm very intrigued as to what's coming up!
