BTT: Inspiration

Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?

Well, I guess I could take this question two ways. First, what inspires me to read in the first place and second, what inspires me to read what I read.

I read because I love it. I've always loved it and probably always will love it. I love being taken into another place or time and getting away from my daily worries, concerns, or happenings. It clears my mind, frees my spirit, and all sorts of other feel good things! :)

As for what I read, it's pretty much a mixed bag. I usually have a shelf of "To-be-read" books that I've heard of through blogs, the nest book club message board, barnes and noble (and the like) reviews, or from family and friends. When I need a book, I go to the shelf and just stand there for a few minutes, looking at the choices. Then I'll pick one up, read a few lines and if it draws me in, I keep going, if not the process just gets repeated. Sometimes I like to just wander around the bookstore or library and find books that speak to me in some way. I like to read about drama or mystery or science, and occasionally, I let the cover art speak to me. Yup, I am guilty of occasionally judging a book by it's cover. But don't we all every once in a while?
