Reija | 307 comments THE CHAIN REACTION
Duration: January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018

Let's create a Chain of Books. For this challenge you will decide the number of books you would like to link together. Start by picking a book, any book, and note the things you find interesting. Once you finish that book, select a new book that links with something you found in the book you just finished. Keep doing this until you have a Chain Reaction!

Example:

Start with Norse Mythology.
This is a fantasy book that revolves around mythological creatures such as Norse gods, dwarfs, and giants. The dwarfs were really interesting!
So the next book will be The Hobbit.
This book is a classic fantasy book that has a hero, dwarfs, and a dragon. Time for another classic!
So the next book could be 1984. Find things that are interesting and go from there!
And so on and so forth.
The length of the chain is totally up to you!

Have fun!

1. Past time refers to a something like a hobby, sport, or other pleasant activity, simply a phrase referring to something being late, a /

Past time Out There: A Scientific Guide to Alien Life, Antimatter, and Human Space Travel on tämmöinen oma kiinnostuksen kohde, ilmeisesti mitään avaruuskirjaa ei voi ohittaa lankeamatta, kaikkeen sitä aikaansa tuhlaa (vaikka tämä oli ihan hyvä)

pastime: literally helps time to pass in a pleasurable manner, old-fashioned, belonging to another, former time
pastime The Order of Time käsitteli aikaa (jota siis ei kai sinänsä ole) vaikka täytyy myöntää että Benedict lukemassa tätä oli mulle se parempi myyntivaltti.. kattelin just Patric Melrosen ja fanitus ei ainakaan vähentynyt

2. Self/shelf:
self Eduskunta: Ystäviä ja vihamiehiä on yhteiskunta pienoiskoossa eli joku siellä edustaa kai muakin

shelf My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues muistelmat lukemien kirjojen perusteella. Yritin joskus pitää lukupäiväkirjaa mutta ehkä parin sivun Neitsari listasta ei saisi kovin kummoista kirjaa. Oispa tämäkin ollut enemmän kirjoista

3. Wander/wonder:
Wander Kätken kirjeesi patjani alle : kirjeenvaihto 1971-2002 - tyttö oli välillä vähän eksyksissä

wonder The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir oli mystisesti nimensä mukaisesti ihan erillisen lapsen murhan ja muistelmien yhdistelmä. Hämmentävä mutta aah niin koukuttava, en ole mikään murha diggari mutta tähän oli pakko palata vaikka kuinka väsytti (tää oli siis mun nukahtamiskirja). Yhdistäviä asioita löyty ja kirjailija teki hienon työn saadakseni mun välittämään asiasta. Joskus vaan mietin että onko ainoa tapa saada kirjoittaa muistelmansa että on tapahtunut jotain järisyttävää.. en ole vähään aikaan lukenut edes kaunopuolelta yhtä hyvin kirjoitettua kirjaa

4. Macro/micro:
Macro Kolkko hiljaisuus: maanulkoista älyä etsimässä eli taas kerran pienten vihreiden miesten metsästystä. Tällä kertaa arveltiin päädyttiin koneälyyn

micro Älykäs suolisto Mosleyn matkassa olen kokeillu 5:2 ja hiitiä. Tää oli selvästi huonoin sarjasta, en jotenkin jaksanut välittää miniminimikrobeista. Ois kuitenkin pitänyt pysyä Mary Roachissa, häneltä on Gut odottamassa mutta tää tuli vastaan kirjastosta
