Booking Through Thursday

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

This is so funny, my hubby and I were just discussing this just this past weekend. He asked me what makes you want to read? He being one that never picks up a book. In the past 10.5 years that I have been with this man, I've only seen him read one book and it was an audio version of the DaVinci Code. That's it! Nothing else! Ever!

I don't know what my inspiration persay is... but I will tell you that I love going into a book store and looking at the shelves and knowing that I've read half or all the books there. It's just such a good feeling to be able to say... "ooh, I read that!" I love being caught up in a good book. I feel learned (I'm not sure if that explains it) but it's just a feeling of accomplishment to read a book and know what it is about or being able to discuss it with someone who has read it too. If nothing else it makes me happy!

Not to mention I get fueled by this blog (having something to write about), reading all of your blogs and those nifty challenges I'm in also push me to read more and more - all these things inspire me to read.

Nice answer. Challenges? What challenges?

It does give on a sense of accomplishment. Asked what have you done with your life, I can point to a stack of thousands of books.

My husband used to be a reader, but I haven't seen him pick up a book in at least five years.

The funny thing is, my DH and I are both English teachers, but he hardly ever reads. He even "teases" me for how much I read! Men ... :)

I like your answer. I understand what you mean when you say you feel learned. I do too!

Good answer. I think a lot of us are inspired by blogging and the books it brings into our lives. I agree with you on reading making one happy and what a great inspiration that is.

I get that feeling of accomplishment as well. Love it!
