Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
This is a really nice question. But I am not really sure how to answer it. The one line answer would be ‘I love reading’ so I don’t really need an inspiration. But that’s not entirely true right? Let’s say like most of the readers I am inspired to find new authors, new stories and new worlds that are far different from my own. That’s the exact reason why I love to read memoirs and travelogues too. I love to learn something about different cultures, different cities through books.
My reading is also inspired by my mood. Like yesterday I was in a mood to read some classic. So I browsed through all the classics I have and picked Jane Eyre. Some of you guys have been raving about Jane Eyre and that’s why I picked it over others.
So it also means that I am inspired by my fellow bloggers and the suggestions I keep getting. That has in fact broadened my horizons as far as reading is concerned.
I am also inspired to read about things I love. For example I love to watch documentaries about wildlife and nature, so if I get some book related to that or set in such an environment I would love to read it.
What else? Book stores inspire me too. Whenever I am on a reading block and even my favorite genre is unable to get me back on track, I go to a bookstore. Just being near so many books and browsing through them gets me back to my reading. Mostly. What inspires you?
