Six Degrees of Separation ~ From The Naked Chef to Lisa and Lottie

#6Degrees of Separation:

from The Naked Chef to Lisa and Lottie

#6Degrees is a monthly link-up hosted by Kate at Books Are My Favourite and Best. I love the idea. Thank you, Kate. See more about this challenge, its history, further books and how I found this here.

This month's prompt starts with The Naked Chef (Goodreads) by Jamie Oliver.

An interesting choice for the beginning of our chain this month. I was thinking about maybe another cook book but then I remembered The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag where I had to find a book with a knife on the cover and I went from there.

Jamie Oliver's book has a knife on the cover and here is another one:

Koch, Herman "The Dinner" (NL: Het Diner) - 2009

But there's not just a knife, there is also a fork, as on the next cover:

Bryson, Bill "At Home" - 2010

Do you see that large house where Bill Bryson hides all the items. Well, a house will also be on my next book:

Bythell, Shaun "The Diary of a Bookseller" - 2017 

There is a car right in front of the house. Let's go from there:

Gilbreth, Frank + Gilbreth Carey, Elizabeth "Cheaper by the Dozen" - 1948

As there are some dogs running alongside the car, here is one with a famous dog on the cover:

Obama, Barack "Of Thee I Sing" - 2010

He is walked by two little girls (also famous) and there has to be another book with two famous girls, even though these are fictional. Everybody knows the film, I wonder how many know the original book:

Kästner, Erich "Lisa and Lottie" (aka The Parent Trap) (GE: Das doppelte Lottchen) - 1949

This challenge was a little harder than some since you can't just tell Google to look for a picture with a certain item in it. I'm sure that will be possible one day. Until then, I hope you all enjoy my chain.

P.S. One Blogger just asked the question whether there is a connection between my first and last book and I found one. There is a table on both the pictures. So, without even trying, my chain now is totally connected. Thanks, Davida.

Look for further monthly separation posts here

  1. Oh wow, this is so so fabulous!
    I'm tempted, but as I focus on the books I have read, it would be harder to find, and I would probably tend to always lend on the same books.
    With Google in general, it's basically already possible.

    1. Same as you, I never use books I haven't read, Emma. Unless it's a wishlist or something but not on lists like this. So, yes, not as easy as with words but it was fun. I might do words again next month again, though, always depends on the first book. This one just "instructed" me to go with the knives. LOL

  2. That's very interesting - using something on the cover to make your chain. Well done, you!

    1. Thanks, Davida. It was a lot of fun. Reminiscing about the books I read that might make the next step in the chain. Thanks for your visit. I am so happy I can comment on your blog again, thanks to Emma ^^ who advised me to use Chrome..

  3. Very creative! I am a big fan of Cheaper by the Dozen and a few years ago was attending a funeral in that town with my mother which, oddly enough, took place at a library. What better place to ask about the house the Gilbreths lived in? Alas, it had been torn down.

    I used Lottie and Lisa in a #6Degrees not that long ago: https://perfectretort.blogspot.com/2020/04/six-degrees-of-separation-from.html#more

    1. Thanks, Constance. So am I, really love it. And the sequel. What a shame they tore the house down but there are always reasons, often enough it's money. But still.

      Thanks for the link, it's rare that I find a German book in one of the lists. I don't think I participated in Six Degrees when you posted this. But I'll definitely have a look, I love those lists.

  4. Damn, this is clever! I want to try this connection path next time (if I remember). My memory on covers is a lot hazier than titles/authors, but I feel like I should at least try. Really great chain. Emma @ Words & Peace alerted me to your cool chain. Thanks Emma!

  5. Thanks, Terrie. Emma is a great blogger friend (and so clever) and has alerted me to some great challenges, as well.

    I can't take all the credit for my memory. The first one that instigated this kind of chain was that a while ago I did a challenge where I had to find a book with a knife on the cover. When I saw this cover, I saw lots of knives, so I just had to take that path. And I have a copy of all the book covers I ever reviewed, so I have can just go through there. Doesn't make it easy, just easier. A little.

    But I'm glad you like this chain. I had fun with it. Thanks for your visit.
