My recent reading has resulted in a literary brain chain. Links include non-fiction, mystery, historical fiction, and young adult books, old favorites and new finds. Here’s how they’re connected:
Harry Peak as described in The Library Book
Reminded me of Jacko, a character in Ordeal by Innocence
Which includes a ferry ride that reminded me of Once Upon A River
That has a live-in river boat which reminded me of Clutch of Constables
Whose journal-writing character Miss Rickerby-Carrick reminded me of Harriet the Spy
Whose life in New York City reminded me of The Black Stallion
Which describes a match race that reminded me of Seabiscuit: An American Legend
Which is compelling non-fiction, just like The Library Book.
These are all great books for wildly different reasons. I was surprised that I could connect them all. Have you read any of them? What do they remind you of?

I’ve read the Black Stallion, but I remember very little of it. It seems inexcusable that I never read Harriet the Spy?? I love connecting books like this.
(I used to organize my shelves with a “train” in this way – my roommates thought it was a superpower that I could tell which book was missing at a glance, but I just knew which link was out of place!)
How cool that you’ve done this before. I’m just getting started thinking this away about books. It would be an interesting way to organize your bookshelves for sure!
