Inspiration: Booking Through Thursday (01/22/2009)

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

My reading list is not inspired by much. Just different recommendations from people or things that I saw that looked good.

But I am inspired to read because when I was younger, I couldn't read that while. In fact my reading was so bad that in the second grade I use to have to leave my class and go to the first grade class during their reading time. I did not catch up until I was in the fourth grade. But that experience had a positive influence on my love for reading now.

Also, my reading is inspired by my grandmother. I lived with her through most of my life and she felt that my difficultly reading was more due to a lack of interest and opportunity. So, she always brought home books that she thought that I should read. I hated most of her selections until she brought "The Boxcar Children" series through the mail. I loved them and would wait for them to arrive.

So, thank you Gwen.


  1. My reading was inspired by my parents who read nursey rhymes to me over and over thinking I was not listening stopped reading. And then when I was bored I repeated them completely.

  2. It's very interesting how adults and their attitude to reading effects children.
