Book Pairings

hosted by Sarah’s Book Shelves

This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title.
It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!”
or just two titles that you think would go well together.
Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history
by reading a nonfiction version of the story.

Today, I’m offering you 3 novels paired with 3 nonfiction books I read this year

BOOK PAIRING #1

POND

Walden The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Walden is a wonderful narrative of the time Henry David Thoreau spent alone in a secluded cabin at Walden Pond. I so enjoyed all the nature descriptions.
In a totally different style, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, is also about a pond, and where it can lead you to…

BOOK PAIRING #2

TRAVELS

 Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes Canterbury tales

Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes is the narrative of the 12 days Robert Louis Stevenson traveled with his donkey Modestine in this very isolated area of France, marked by fierce fights between Roman Catholics and Protestants. I really enjoyed his humor at describing the mentality of the area and the people he met.
The Canterbury Tales is about travels and narratives, and religion,and it contains also very funny passages.

BOOK PAIRING #3

TECHNOLOGY

 Talk to me I Robot

Talk to Me: How Voice Computing Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Think is an extremely well-documented and up-to-date research, showing where civilization is heading to, through current technological advances. It’s about how we interact with technology, computers, AI, and robots.
The most powerful novel I have read about the connection between humans and robots is definitely I, Robot.
Please skip the horrible movie, which really has nothing to do with the book.

HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE?
WOULD YOU HAVE ANOTHER
BOOK PAIRING RELATED TO TRAVELS OR TECHNOLOGY?

  1. I haven’t read any of your pairings but I am tempted to add all six books to my TBR! I don’t think I will be able to pass up on reading Talk to Me – I love Asimov and I am fascinated by how technology is changing our lives. I love this week in NonFiction November!

  2. These are interesting pairings! I don’t have any technology ones as I haven’t read a tech book for a while and don’t read much sci fi, which is the natural pairing. But I enjoyed reading yours. Found vour blog via the Link-up on Sarah’s page and now following using Feedly.
