#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.
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.
