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 think a lot of people probably read the same “niche” books as me – on cookery, gardening, health, nutrition, travel and crafts, such as knitting, cross stitch and so on. I also have quite a lot of books on yoga, religion and philosophy and also on creative writing. Looking on my bookshelves I see I also have books on photography, which I’d forgotten about – Digital Photography Handbook and Learn Photography in a Weekend, now those sound useful.
I’m much better at reading these books than I am at putting them into practice.
