Welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays: a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic of July 26, 2016 is: top ten books that you want to learn after reading a book or have learned after reading a book…this should be an interesting topic.
A little late for posting, but better now than never 🙂
*Want to learn, haven’t learned yet
**A skill in-process
1. Krav maga** | City of Bones by Cassandra Clare — I’m still very much a beginner, but I have picked up a few useful things
2. Pigpen cipher | The Hanging Hill by Chris Grabenstein — Useful if you’re hesitant about journaling in public spaces 🙂
3. Architecture / design* | Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein
4. Apparition* | The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling — Sadly I do not think I will ever learn how to
5. Writing well** | Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott — This one is in process
6. Learn Greek or Ancient Greek* | Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan — Unfortunately the few Greek words are not words that you would use in a day-to-day conversation (I hope)
7. Learn Old Norse* | The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini — The same thing that can said about my Greek can be said of my Old Norse.
8. Archery** | The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins — I know the basics, but I am no where near Katniss’s level.
9. Fencing* | Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas — I’m interested a little in learning how to fence from Throne of Glass, but I’ve never gotten around to it.
That’s it for this week–what books do you have on your TTT this week? What have books inspired you to go out and learn? Feel free to leave a link to your TTT in a comment
