Get Inspired To Read!

Booking Through Thursday question of the week:

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

My answer:

Now how do I answer this? I know that reading inspires me absolutely but what's my reading inspired by or what inspires my reading, to put it simply.

I guess it's inspired by a lot of factors like by other book bloggers who review great books that I think I shouldn't give a miss.

It's inspired by my pursuing to be someone of great knowledge and intelligence. (ahem!)

My reading is also inspired by what I'm learning at the moment. When we were covering the topics about freedom and technology, my lecturer mentioned 1984 by George Orwell and I went to the library and borrowed it. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered reading it. It's an informative book, by the way. Rather disturbing too!

Besides that, it's inspired by the fact that people don't read as much now. Thanks to the television, the Internet, and a huge amount of homework, young people especially, don't have much time to put aside just for reading.

It's happening to me too. Last year, I spent more time online than with my books! It's preposterous! :D When I think about it, I cannot accept it but what's happened has already happened and it's no use crying over spilt milk.

This year, I'm going to make up for lost reading time. My resolution of reading more books this year will be my main inspiration for reading.


  1. I agree with what inspires you inspires me as well. Happy Thursday!

  2. I spend way too much time on the internet too!! I'm trying to balance that out with my reading time!!

    Good post!

  3. confuzzled shannon: That's great! Happy thursday to you too.

    Staci: Good luck with that! I'm trying it out over here too. :)

  4. I too spend way too much time on the internet, I could be reading or drawing with that time! I have tons of books and big box of colored pencils/a notebook staring me in the face!

  5. huhnjill: Thanks for your comment otherwise I'd have forgotten about this post and my resolution to read more this year.

    You like to draw? Cool! Then get off the computer right now and start drawing! :D

    The same goes for me too. Reading, I meant.

  6. You're welcome Josette, always glad to talk to a fellow book worm! :D

    About the drawing, yeah I would but its kinda late and I'm going to be watching a movie soon...maybe tomorrow ;)
