Since “Inspiration” is (or should) [be] the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?Good question! My reading is mostly inspired by a combination of friends and my own stumblings through the internets. I'm basically a sponge, and it takes very little to get me to try a book. If you like it, or if you think I will like it, I will likely put it on the TBR pile. Alternatively, I read a lot on the internet as well.
When I lived in Hamilton, I used to go on the public library website and search through the new books, placing holds on things that looked interesting, or just writing them down on my list to come back to another day.
And when I worked at Chapters? Those were heady days...I never had so many recommendations from people in my life! It was truly amazing working in a bookstore because I got to talk about books with everyone (apart from those poor souls looking for webkinz.)
These days a lot of inspiration comes from the challenges I've joined, and the people at work who love to read as much as I do.
So you can see, my inspiration comes from many sources. Every book has potential, as far as I'm concerned.
