What’s your favorite genre that other people might not read? I mean, mysteries, romances, real-crime … these are all fairly widespread categories. But real readers don’t usually limit themselves to just the “big” genres … so what’s your favorite little-known type of book? Books on dogs? Knitting books? Stories about the space race? Mathematical theory?

I like to read knitting books--mostly they are series books, some are cozy mysteries. The book that got me into knitting, The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club by Gil McNeil, is the first in the Jo MacKenzie series. And because it's a series, I had to read the rest. Then I started reading cozy mysteries that feature knit shops or knitting. Then I moved on to the Friday Night Knitting Club series by Kate Jacobs. Which then led me to the Sugar Maple series by Barbara Bretton. Which led me to a list of knitting cozy mysteries that looks like fun, I've bought several firsts in series but have yet to read them.

I don't think I've ever read any knitting fiction. Non-fiction instructional books, yes. I didn't realize there were knitting mystery novels!
