Booking through Thursday
This is today's discussion ---
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?
On my book shelf I have a few books I dip into occasionally,
Books on Catholicism including prayer books , one dating from 1890.
Old nursing/midwifery books from my nursing days.
A couple of general sewing books and also embroidery books that belonged to my Mum.
Gardening books, although you'd never think I owned them if you saw the garden, lol!
I think the largest collection is cookery books, they seem to breed I'm sure as I have so many and I don't remember buying them.
All of the above get an airing from time to time.

Now tell me what books do you read?
