This week Booking Through Thursday asks:
Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
Reading is an escape for me most of the time. So I like to read fiction that takes me to interesting places with characters I can connect with and get wrapped up in their story. I like experiencing places and cultures I haven't been to before but I also like reading about places I have visited/lived and connecting through nostalgia.
Since the world has too much violence and foul language and perverse things I don't want to read about it as well. Books that contain those things turn me off and put me in a bad mood. Not that what I read has to be light and fluffy by any means, just not foul. I am inspired more by a good story especially if it's romantic, suspenseful, or historical. I also like books with humor woven in where I can't help but laugh out loud.
As far as non-fiction, I get inspired by books that pull me out of my tunnel vision and help me grow spiritually. One of my favorites is Beth Moore. I love how she is on fire for God and inspires others to do the same.
