Since “Inspiration” is (or should be) the theme this week. . . what is your reading inspired by?
Before I discovered the world of book blogs, I would’ve said my moods. I just read whatever struck my fancy at any given time. However, since I’ve become active as a book blogger, the answer to this question is more complicated. Now I read primarily for the challenges I’m involved in. This is not a bad thing. I’ve yet to endure a book I just hate; in fact, I’m pretty sure I’ll never do that. I just can’t imagine reading something I have no stomach for just to fulfill an obligation. Right now I am reading books for the Semicolon Book Club and various 5 Minutes for Books challenges, not to mention my own rather copious TBR list. In January I have also participated in the L.M. Montgomery Reading Challenge, and I might even try to squeeze in another L.M. Montgomery novel before the month’s end. I like having direction in my reading. It gives me a goal and a reason to persevere through the dry patches. Anyway, if I ever run out of the aforementioned books to read, there’s always my More Books Mondays lists!
