Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

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 never considered myself a niche reader. My personal library runs the gamut from non-fiction to fantasy to romance and back. However, I am addicted to recipes. I clip them from newspapers, will spend hours searching the Internet for ones that sound interesting. I subscribe to Taste of Home, Food and Wine, Kraft Kitchens, Food Network Magazine, and I’m contemplating yet another cooking magazine. I also have been known to pick up a cookbook or two at the bookstore. I currently have so many that they no longer fit in one of my cupboards and one of my summer projects is to organize and purge. I have cookbooks I’ve never opened, much less used it to prepare a recipe. I have enough recipes to cook a new recipe for every meal for at least two or three years without repeating. Recipes seem to be my niche.
