My niche books

btt2This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is: What niche books do you read?

I think I read lots of niche books (when a niche is novels generally), but I certainly don’t think of them as niche books.

I read:
knitting books,
spinning books (as in making yarn).
I read
word books [such as this book I posted about and They Have a Word for It, which I recently acquired after adding it to my wish list immediately upon its release, nine years ago.] and
gluten-free cooking and baking books.

What types of books do you read that not everyone reads?

  1. Have you read Word People by by Nancy C Sorel? It’s about people whose names became part of the english language (as in common nouns) and how that happened. Pretty interesting.

  2. Ooh, I’d love to have a go at making my own yarn. I’ll have to keep that in mind.

  3. Spinning books..my mom can spin yarns. I never learnt that art from her!

  4. Word books – I’m going to have to look into some of those. Here are mine: (1) and (2)

  5. I’ve always wanted to try knitting but have never taken the time to learn.

  6. I have found myself reading craft books on occasion, which is odd, since I don’t do anything crafty, ever. Word books probably fall into my category of eccentric reference materials.

  7. Word books are close to one of my niches, grammar and language books.

  8. I also like to read books on language and linguistics (I’ve reviewed The Unfolding of Language, The Professor & The Madman, and Stories of English).

    I read and review a lot of books about religion, because I double-majored in English and Comparative Religion. I know that not a lot of people will read those, but I try to guide people towards the better ones if they are interested in it.

What do you think? I'd love to know.
