It’s the first Saturday of the month so that means it’s #6degrees of separation time! This month’s starting book is How to Do Nothing – Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell.
You can find the details and rules of the #6degrees meme at booksaremyfavouriteandbest, but in a nutshell, on the first Saturday of every month, everyone has the same starting book and from there, you connect in a variety of ways to other books. Some of the connections made are so impressive, it’s a lot of fun to follow.
This month’s book is one that I would never read. I don’t read a whole lot of non-fiction anyway, but is this a self-help style book? It sounds a bit like it from the title and blurb. The cover is pretty though, so I’m going to create a chain based on books with floral dominated covers such as this one.
First degree: Paris Savages by Katherine Johnson
Second degree: In the Garden of Fugitives by Ceridwen Dovey
Third degree: Her Last Words by Kim Kelly
Fourth degree: Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
Fifth degree: The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood
Sixth degree: Gulliver’s Wife by Lauren Chater
All the beautiful floral covers! Pretty basic chain, I know. I didn’t read the starting book but I have read all of the links in my chain – that should count for something, I hope!
Until next month! 🙂☕📚
