  1. I never would have thought of including the home canning book, but it is educational! haha. That John Stewart book has been on my "read it someday" list forever, I need to get serious and actually buy it!

  2. I like your take on this weeks' prompt! This is a great list. I'm pretty sure I need to read that adulting book. xD Also, so much yes to America (The Book)! I loved it! The only thing I wasn't a fan of were the annotations. They bugged me.

  3. I want to read Smoke Gets In Your Eyes. It sounds really good! If you like learning about unique topics, have you read The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries by Marilyn Johnson?? It's all about the topic of obituaries and was a very interesting read.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/08/top-ten-tuesday-back-to-schoollearning.html

  4. Unmentionable looks fascinating! I'm going to add it to my TBR right away.

  5. Great list! Unmentionable and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes are both books I need to check out.

  6. I just requested The World of Lore from my local library. Wow, it looks good. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by there earlier today.

  7. Unmetionable sounds like it's reallly interesting.

  8. Oh! I'd forgotten about Smoke Gets in Your Eyes but this is one I absolutely want to read. Thanks for reminding me. Great list!
