Top Ten Things I've Wanted to Learn More About After Reading About Them in Books
1. Shepherding! Ohmygoodness how badly do I want some sheep in my life? I've read a number of books about them, including A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 by W. Phillip Keller and Adventures in Yarn Farming by Barbara Parry.
2. Antique book collecting. I first read about it in Used and Rare by Lawrence Goldstone and continued to read more about it in The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett.
3. Honeybees. I read about them in Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobsen and in Scouting the Divine by Margaret Feinberg.
4. Weird really old photographs. I encountered the photos in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs and had to do more research into them!
5. Parkour. I read about it in What We Saw at Night and What We Lost in the Dark by Jacquelyn Mitchard.
6. The back storage stacks at the New York Public Library. I first read about their rare/special collections in Bibliocraft by Jessica Pigza.
7. Book censorship. I read about it in The Zhivago Affair by Peter Finn.
8. Robert Louis Stevenson. I read Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan and learned so many interesting things about him- I wanted to know even more after that!
9. 1920s NYC. It's the setting for The Diviners and Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray, and I love the parties and the slang!
10. WWII internment camps. I first read about them in Dear Miss Breed by Joanne F. Oppenheim.
