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 recently purchased Nourishing Traditions, which is mostly a cookbook, but also has a lot of information about health benefits for certain foods, as well as foods to avoid.

Since we are in the process of adoption, books about adoption and the Philippines also interest me, although I have not read as many as I thought I might on these topics. The ones I’ve read about adoption had helpful information, but were not written in a way that made them fast reads…

    Have you read No More Bull by Howard Lyman (the mad cowboy) or Michael Pollan’s the Omnivore’s Dilemma? They’ve been on my reading list for awhile, but I haven’t gotten to them yet.

    Congrats on adopting.
