Booking Through Thursday - Niche Books

Deb at Booking Through Thursday asks:

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?

Looking at my Library Thing tags, there are 118 books I've tagged Spirituality. These cover a pretty wide range within that category including Buddhism, meditation, paganism, tarot, recovery, goddess religion and yoga.

I'm beginning to collect quite a few books on photography, my newest passion. They're mostly how-to books and some on specific types of photography, such as macro and portrait. And I have a fair number of gardening books, even though I've mostly just photographed the garden in the last couple of years.

And, yes, Dog Training for Dummies! Since the puppy will be arriving in a few weeks, we've been boning up (pun intended!) on how to raise the little bundle. Dog ownership has changed over the years - now it's more like adopting a child, including doggy day care! So we have much anxiety about doing it right and have checked out a bunch of books and videos from the library. Wish us luck!
