Just a passing thought: do you ever come across odd little links between the books you’re reading, despite the books appearing unrelated?
For example, there was a mention of Anne Deveson in Biff Ward’s In My Mother’s Arms – I was reading Ward’s book at the same time as I was reading The Museum of Words by Georgia Blain – Deveson was Blain’s mother.
Likewise, I’m reading two books at the moment – Gilgamesh by Joan London and The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne – both of which focus on young single mothers who were judged harshly by their communities. I didn’t choose these books because I felt like reading about young mothers, it just happened that way…
Do you notice odd links between the books you’re reading?
*The picture above has nothing to do with anything. I just liked it and wish I was there right now (it’s 10am and already 32° in Melbourne, ahead of a predicted 40° ).
