It isn't so much reading that inspires me but some thought or idea that appears in my mind. The reading helps develop that inspiration. It can be anything too. Blogs, Newspapers or a novel.
Very good poetry.
Mostly fiction stories mainly romance but due to my dyslexia I get tried easy but sometimes I can get little bits and come up with big ideas. It depends on the print the book how long I last reading it.
Anything written well. Of course sometimes I read something and it is so bad that I know I can do better and I do.
I love to read but as an adult (especially as a mother with three kids) I don't have as much time to read as I once did. I often have to choose between writing and reading. Since writing pays, reading doesn't, my choice is clear.
Anything. Article, short stories, novels, and even film and television. Inspiration can come from anywhere.
Memoirs inspire me to write the most. There is something about reading what is real that is more inspiring than anything else.
Generally its not something I read that I has inspires me its something I hear on the news or something someone says.
As a news junkie and a critical reader, I find inspiration in topics that engage, even anger, a wide spectrum of people—that are the talk of the town and of the world, so to speak—especially think pieces. I'm particularly interested in opinions, essays, the editorial voice in all its many colours and shades. I am a great admirer, for example, of Lewis Lapham's Notebook commentaries, which appeared monthly during his long tenure as the editor of Harper's Magazine, and of the work of such provocateurs as Christopher Hitchens.
The Al-Qur'an is my primary inspiration.
Tom Clancy style stories. I think he is great and he really does great research for his books.
I like writing that I can escape into; authors who do a great job of evoking an extremely believable fictional setting. That sort of story inspires me to try to do the same sort of thing. I also love good characterization.
Lately it's been paranormal romance, but I also write when an article in a magazine, or something in the news hits me too.
Human interest stories of people over coming great barriers to let others know that even the human condition can be changed from what we may deem as impossible and or improbable will rise to meet the best in all of us. Cream always rises to the top is one of my fav sayings
I like to read both non-fiction and fiction. Oddly enough, the non-fiction gives me more idea and inspires me more. Probably because I write science fiction...
