Inspired to Read

22 Jan

This week’s Booking Through Thursday prompt is:

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

My answer:

My reading is inspired by a lot of things.  I am usually inspired by a recommendation of some sort.  For example, I read most of the books on the Florida Teens Read list, because a lot of teachers at my school recommended them.  Sometimes, I’m inspired to read because I see a review in a magazine or on a book blog, too.

Other times, I’m inspired by other things I like.  For example, I read the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris because I love TrueBlood on HBO.  Then I read her Lily Bard mysteries because I had enjoyed the Sookie books so much.  I also want to read the Dexter books because I love Dexter the tv show.

Mostly, though, I’m inspired by my addiction to reading and my desire to keep doing it.  I’ll read almost anything, if it’s good. 🙂

    I’ve just heard about the Sookie Stackhouse books, and I think I’m going to have to give it a try, especially since I don’t get HBO. 🙂

    Reading is a great addiction isn’t it.
