Booking Thru Thursday


There are certain types of books that I more or less assume all readers read. (Novels, for example.)

But then there are books that only YOU read. Instructional manuals for fly-fishing. How-to books for spinning yarn. How to cook the perfect souffle. Rebuilding car engines in three easy steps. Dog training for dummies. Rewiring your house without electrocuting yourself. Tips on how to build a NASCAR course in your backyard. Stuff like that.

What niche books do YOU read?

I had a harder time with this question, I'm not sure I really have a niche. I'll stop at browse at anything that grabs my eye but usually just stick to my normal reading genre. There are some books I can't resist but wouldn't necessarily think they are a niche.

Books with images of photography/art. I just love reading these, mostly it's just looking. I seldom am able to walk by this section of the store without stopping to look through at least a few. I also love how to draw books. I stink at drawing and they always catch my eye. Haven't bought any yet tho. One day maybe...

I don't got looking for specific niche books but if I see one on history, dogs or ones with photographs, I usually pick them up.

I had to think on this one too! I've never been able to draw.
