Friday 56: The Language of Trees

16 Jul

Another week of participating in the Friday 56 from Storytime With Tonya and Friends .

The rules are:

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section Tonya’s blog.
  • Post a link along with your post back to Tonya’s blog.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

I’m reading The Language of Trees by Ilie Ruby for a post for TLC book tours next Tuesday. This is an uncorrected proof, so there might be some minor changes when the book is released in August, but I’d be surprised.  Here we go:

He almost doesn’t see what comes next. He almost runs right into it, but catches himself just in time to miss the large gray wolf dodging across his path, its fur blurring into the mist as though it were a patch of moving fog.

There are some amazing descriptions in this book!

    Both the title and book cover look interesting.

    Dangerous encounter for your F56.

    Thanks for visiting mine here.

    Nice 56 and I love that cover! too bad they’ll probably change it for the official release. They normally do anyway.

    This book has intrigued me for a while now but I am unsure what I will do about it…
