Six Degrees of Separation September 2020

Welcome to our second edition of Six Degrees of Separation. Once again, we are a couple of days late for this monthly feature, but at least we do still jump on the wagon. We apologize profoundly to our host, Books are my Favorite and Best.  On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Books can be linked in obvious ways, for example: same authors, same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings.

Luckily, with about six clicks and a basic idea of where to go, she managed to find Books are my favorite and best, the host of this feature.  I’m sure you are all aware of the phrase “six degrees of separation”? The idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by just six links. I’m not quite sure if it will work for cats, I can’t even remember how many siblings I’ve had before my mommy adopted me. But apparently it’s quite possible for humans and books to create a chain of only six links between everyone and every book.  But I’m getting side tracked here. Back to the meme: […]
