History and Genealogy

Sports is running America. Sometimes it's hard to find a hole to hide in when the TV comes on for a sporting event. It's not always safe to be in the room with avid sports fans as they can be dangerous. I leave all the books on sports for their reading pleasure. History can be very boring. I do better reading historical fiction. I need people in what I read. I've learned the hard way to stay away from politics and religion. Neither of those subjects do well in public conversation. Both were subjects I was passionate about in my younger years. I've laid them down now and no longer read on those subjects because I can't keep my mouth shut in public. Genealogy is a very interesting subject but I've found people's eyes glaze over quickly if that's not their interest. If it is their interest they likely don't want to listen to your family stories. They'd rather listen to their own family stories. Genealogy drops like a rock in public conversation. Cooking is another popular subject. My eyes glaze over very quickly on this topic. I don't cook. I don't want to cook and I don't want to read about cooking. Now I have a problem. I could go on and on about reading interests but this post is already to long. What do I enjoy reading? I'll be back tomorrow to tell you. What topics do you enjoy reading?
