Six degrees of separation:
the Bible to Canterbury
Another cool result this month!
Using my own rules for this fun meme hosted by Kate at Booksaremyfavouriteandbest (see there the origin of the meme and how it works – posted the first Saturday of every month), I started with a containing the word Bible and ended up in Canterbury. This is really fun, you never know where you’ll end up.
Here are my own quirky rules:
Use your list of books on Goodreads
Take the first word of the title offered and find another title with that word in it
Then use the first word of THAT title to find your text title
Or the second if the title starts by the same word
After the covers, you can find the links of my reviews or the title on Goodreads:
1. The Poisonwood Bible = this is the first book I read by Kingsolver. I was still in France, but a friend loved it so much, he mailed it to me from the US. After that, I have almost all her books.
2. The Poisoned Crown = this is the 3rd book in the famous historical fiction series by the French Maurice Druon, called The Accursed Kings. I really enjoyed the first two, but was no longer in the mood for #3 and DNFed it. Maybe one day I’ll get back to it.
3. The French Sultana (The Veil and the Crown, #2)= wonderful historical novel on Josephine’s cousin!
4. Fairy Tales for the Disillusioned: Enchanted Stories from the French Decadent Tradition = fabulous and quirky anthology by PrincetonUniversity Press
5. Perrault’s Fairy Tales = I actually read them in French, a few decades ago.
6. The Canterbury Tales = I listened to them 7 years ago, it was fun!

I think I should probably go back and listen/read to The Canterbury Tales, as I had to read one of them in high school, and probably didn’t appreciate it as much I might now. The French Sultana sounds interesting, too.
you should definitely give it a try. I see they also have audio versions with several narrators. It can enhance it
What a fun list!!
thanks. you should play too, it’s on the first Sat of each month
Your title confused me since your title says BIBLE not POISONWOOD BIBLE, but I see you found your way to Kingsolver’s classic book. I, too, am a Kingsolver fan and I think I have only not read one of her books, one of her essay books. My Six Degrees list
yes, her essays are very good too. I really liked High Tide in Tucson
