Six degrees of separation: from It to the Broken Teaglass

Six degrees of separation:
from
IT
to
THE BROKEN TEAGLASS

 

Thanks to Karen’s posts at BookerTalk on Six Degrees of Separation, I finally discovered 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.
As every blogger can invent their own rules, I chose a quirky one, of course:

  1. Use your list of books on Goodreads

  2. Take the first word of the title offered and find another title with that word in it

  3. Then use the first word of THAT title to find your text title

  4. Or the second if the title starts by the same word

So here is my result for today:

   It  As you like it

  French Illusions   French house 

  Glass Houses  broken teaglass

1. IT
2. As you like IT
3. French Illusions: My Story AS an American Au Pair in the Loire Valley
4. The FRENCH House
5. Glass HOUSES
6. The Broken TEAGLASS

The Classics Spin #16: what I got

The Classics Spin #16

Twitter hashtag: #ccspin

For Classics Spin #14, I got #1: A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin
For Classics Spin, #15, I got #12: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
For Classics Spin, #16, I got #4: Arsène Lupin, by Maurice Leblanc.

I’m really thrilled, because:

  • it’s a French classic
  • it’s a mystery, and I’m in a mystery mood
  • perfect timing, as I recently finished reading ALL of Sherlock Holmes, plus The Sherlock Holmes Book (DK Publishing), which does open to major other mystery classics – such as Arsène Lupin. It will be interesting to compare characters and plot.

So I have until end of December to read and review it.
It’s never too late to challenge yourself to (re)discover the classics and connect and have fun with other Classics lovers. See what this is all about.
