Booking Through Thursday

This week's question...

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

My answer:

A few things are an inspiration for my reading...

First, I love to escape to another world. Sometimes I just want to "get away from it all" and I can bury myself into another place, sometimes even a different time. It makes me feel good and relieves the stresses of a work day.

Second, I get inspired by reading fellow book bloggers recommendations for books. Reading how a book may have touched someone's life, inspires me to read it.

Third, the books I choose can often be inspired by mood. With a TBR that literally numbers in the 1000's, I have so much to choose from and all my various moods are well covered. LOL

Fourth, the last thing that I can think of that inspires me - is trying to cut down that TBR that numbers in the 1000's. Of course I have to also stop buying and adding to Mount TBR, but that's a whole other story.

In honor of the return of one of my favorite TV shows last night, Lost, a picture of Josh Holloway as Sawyer.


  1. Well, that's certainly an inspiring photo. Of course, the inspiration has nothing to do with opening a book!

  2. I forgot to add the old TBR pile. Happy BTT.

  3. Ooo! Thanks for the "inspiration"! LOL. :P ("Sawyer" = yummy!)

  4. I love LOST as well! I was kind of disappointed that he appropriated Frogurt's shirt!

  5. Hummmm. The photo has inspired me to reconsider the show. I haven't been watching. I wonder if I should put it on my NetFlix queue!!

  6. I am enjoying reading everyone's responses to this question, hoping it will help shape my own. Is that cheating? Haha!

    I agree with each of the points you make in your post. You've definitely inspired me to add books to my wish list and TBR collection with your reviews. :-)

    And I know all about that ever growing TBR pile we keep trying to decrease to no avail.

  7. Lost is a good inspiration for reading I have heard Sawyer has read a lot of interesting books on the show.

  8. oh so many in the list. i hope you can cut the numbers down.

    thanks for checking mine.

  9. wooohooo!!! hellooooo sawyer! lol.
    how funny that last night he was shirtless for nearly an
    damn that Frogurt for giving him a shirt to wear!

    I agree, what I read next depends on my mood and also on fellow bloggers book recommendations.

  10. Ah yes, the ever increasing TBR pile, that is certainly an inspiration :)

  11. Fellow book bloggers definitely inspire me too!
