It’s time for #6degrees. Join in and see where your book chain takes you.
This month we begin with the international bestseller, No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith.
I haven’t read No.1 Ladies Detective Agency and some readers I know CAN’T BELIEVE IT. Nor can they believe that I haven’t read Harry Potter. I’m just not into wizards…
Although I have zero interest in Harry Potter, my son did. And I do remember the joy of a series of books, in particular the Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene.
The book features recipes such as Sleuth Soup and Dancing Puppet Parfait. It reminds me of Fictitious Dishes by Dinah Fried, described as an ‘album of literature’s most memorable meals’.
One of the books included in Fictitious Dishes is Gone With the Wind (served with sweet potatoes).
Gone With the Wind is a doorstopper (960 pages) and I read it over one summer holiday. Although people usually favour light paperbacks as beach reading, I go for a big book each summer, knowing I’ll have the time to tackle it. This summer, my pick is The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne (at 600 pages, it should keep me busy).
From detective series and cooking to ‘heavyweights’ (literally) – where will other chains lead? Link up below or post your link in the comments section.
