My reading is inspired by many things. First and foremost it is inspired by the books themselves and the authors who can put these wonderful works out there for me to enjoy. I love that a book picks me up from my world and deposits me squarely in another. They are my escape.
Secondly, I am so inspired by the blogging world and the wonderful group of people I’ve met through it. I’ve always been a voracious reader but now with blogging I’ve met others just like me and I love it. My blog inspires me. I want to try to bring good reviews to the people reading and make it a place that they like to visit.
Reading brings people together with a common bond of books. What could be more inspiring than that?
I love books that place you squarely into another world. Fantastic.
I agree 100%!

Book Lover Lisa says
I agree on both counts. Blogging brings book reading into a whole new realm, dosen’t it.
Beth F says
I love books about other times, other places!
I totally agree about being inspired by the books themselves. If it weren’t for that, well, I’d probably watch more TV. 🙂
Great answer, Dar!
Arm chair travels, I love that books can transport you to different times and places!
No question about it Dar, your blog does inspire. 🙂
Very well said, Dar! I totally agree!
Hi Dar 🙂
You are so right, books are a great place to escape, to travel into an other world. Thank God for the authors who have this gift…
Our blog community inspires me to, there are many books I would never have thought of where it not for our blogging friends

Excellent post Dar!!
Your blog inspires me!!! 🙂
Our answers are very much the same, Dar! 🙂
Books are certainly a lovely escape!
Perfectly put, Dar!
Thanks to all of you who commented on my Booking Through Thursday post and those who said my blog inspires them-I’m flattered.
I get a lot of inspiration from other bloggers as well–not only to reach beyond my normal boundaries but also to write better reviews. I don’t know if my reviews have gotten any better or if they’re just longer, but it’s funny to look back at my first few months of posts.

Great Answer, Dar. This was a challenging question. I find books a wonderful escape as well. Your blog is definitely one that inspires me as well!
I agree with you. Books themselves inspire me as well. i also like to find out more about the authors of book I just read, sometimes their lives or some details from them seem like the last piece of the puzzle
So glad I met you through blogging 🙂
Trish, your reviews are awesome. I really enjoyed your latest format with Twilight.
Bonnie, thanks. Your blog is one of my faves-you know that.
lilly-I agree. Sometimes knowing more about who wrote the book makes it even more inspiring.
Lenore, back at you. I’m really happy to have met you too.
