Six Degrees of Separation is the brain child of Kate over at Books Are My Favourite and Best where we all start with the same book, and head down the rabbit hole to add six more, and see where our links take us!
Follow the hashtag #6degrees on Twitter to check out everyone else’s chains. Six Degrees of Separation is normally done on the first Saturday of the month, but procrastination has meant I am posting a week later.
The book we are starting with in July is Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss. Eats, Shoots & Leaves is a witty nonfiction book about grammar, punctuation, and the importance and use of things like commas and semicolons.
That lead me to a book I have been wanting to read for a while called In The Land Of Invented Languages by Arika Okrent. In The Land Of Invented Languages is said to be an interesting look at the nature of language, with a few tidbits about klingon thrown in.
That brings me to From Elvish To Clingon by Michael Adams. This looks at all invented languages, everything from Tolkien’s Elvish to Simlish.
Tolkien leads me to The Hobbit.
The Hobbit leads me to another fantasy book I want to read: Elvish by S.G. Prince. Elvish is a fantasy romance where it is forbidden for humans and elves to date, but there is always the potential for rules to be broken.
And finally onto Soulbound by Bethany Adams, which is another Elvish fantasy on my TBR.
So there we have it, I got from grammar to elves.
Have you read any of these books? Let me know!
