Guess a Quote (8.05.14)

Guess A Quote 8.05.14 Back with our normal Guess a Quote after the amazing Counted Worthy Kickstarter launch yesterday. Read more about that in the announcements section. It was truly incredible.

Last week’s Guess a Quote came from Anne of Green Gables. CJ, Amanda, and Morgan Huneke all guessed it correctly. How many of you are Anne of Green Gables fans? Do you prefer the books or the movies?

Here’s this week’s quote. I think this one is fairly obvious, so hopefully a lot of you will be able to guess it.

He lay down on his pallet and drew the fawn down beside him. He often lay so with it in the shed, or under the live oaks in the heat of the day. He lay with his head against its side. its ribs lifted and fell with its breathing. It rested its chin on his hand. It had a few short hairs there that prickled him. He had been cudgeling his wits for an excuse to bring the fawn inside at night to sleep with him, and now he had one that could not be disputed. He would smuggle it in and out as long as possible, in the name of peace.

Happy Guessing!

  1. It’s from The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I enjoyed it, though it didn’t make it to favorite status.

    I love the Anne of Green Gables books. I’ve read the series several times. I like the movie of the first one, since it’s really close to the book, the second movie is a mix of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th books, and leaves out some of the best stuff, and the third movie just isn’t Anne. So that’s my opinion. 🙂

    So cool that you’re using Kickstarter to self-publish the good way! 🙂

    Oh no, no, wait!
    You did a guess a quote on one of my total all-time favorites / one of the most beautiful books I’ve read and I MISSED it?!! 😦
    I don’t usually cry at books, but this one… Oh, this one!
    OK, I’ll stop gushing.
