A book inspires me

"I pick up a book by, let's say, an essayist. What I find that inspires me, or moves me, animates me, gets me excited, intellectually—if I'm in the mood to receive—is not simply a matter of information, it's a kind of spirit that you feel through the words: a sense of discovery; a sense of making one's way through material that suddenly impresses you as original or important and significant." [Edward said: Parallels and Paradoxes]
