Does every reader hold an unexpected fascination with an unlikely subject? I’d like to think so, and I know mine—I’m fascinated by urban planning.
I love to know how things are made, why things work the way they do, and how our physical spaces shape our behavior in ways both positive and negative—and how they do so whether or not we’re aware of it.
I’ve been meaning to share a list of favorites here on the blog for ages now, and am finally doing it now because the second category for the 2019 Reading Challenge is “a book about a topic that fascinates you.” I know what my topic is, and if you share my unlikely obsession, add one of these titles to your list.
But most of you will choose a book from an entirely different genre. Please tell us in comments what subjects you find fascinating, and what you are therefore contemplating reading for this category. We’d love to hear.
