Trees of Reverie September Readathon Daily Bookish Challenges Day Seven

What are the genres or types of books that you read least often or not at all?

Self-help books.

These drive me crazy. Every once in a very rare while I’ll pick one up that is interesting, but for the most part, they all just seem so superficial. Maybe I’ve seen too many movies, but I always have an image of someone doing self-affirmations in an old broken down car after watching a terrible infomercial. And then on the flipside, the big haired, too much rouged (male or female both), over the top self-helpernator.

I know they aren’t all like that. But that’s what I see in my head when I walk into that section of the book store.

Political Non-Fiction

My husband loves politics. He’s one of those guys who has an opinion about everything. I both love and hate it when he gets on fire about a subject because 1) he’s super intelligent and it’s kind of sexy when he gets excited. But 2) I usually have no idea what he’s talking about. I’m learning though…and often times…we don’t always agree. Whoops.

Current events, though, has never been my subject. I am much more of a history buff. I am not good with understanding policy, and and I can never remember which side of the teetertoter everything falls on. Sometimes, it all just seems like everyone is arguing the same points.

So, when R buys books about politicians or current events…I feel like I should probably read them…but I never do. They may make it into the order eventually, but they are not the priority.
