Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
Lots of things:
This means you. In fact, my tbr pile is all your fault. I find plenty of interesting books by reading everyone’s blogs.
Technically, they’re people too. :-) But I’ve been known to pick up a book by a particular author just because I’ve enjoyed their previous work.
I like travel memoirs. I’ll go on binges with these books, especially when I have a hankering to be an ex-pat. Not that it would happen, but I can dream, right? Or live vicariously through others.
This is hard to explain, but I’m guessing you know what I mean. I like variety, and depending what I’m in the mood for, my reading tastes vary. Also, when I'm browsing through a bookstore, my mood affects what I end up bringing home.
I’m a sucker for a beautiful cover. There have been plenty of books purchased because their covers caught my eye.
I'm sure there are other inspiring things, but that's what popped into my head for now.
