I generally tend to switch between phases wherein I hate to read anything and prefer solitude... like to think independently....uninfluenced by any other idea/thought/opinion and phases where I go all out and pick people's brains and read almost everything in the hope that some random statement will trigger an unexpectedly creative idea in me. That's not just a long but also defensive statement. Why? I have been rummaging through old posts and old material that I did not catch up with earlier. I found this list on Shawn's....which I quite like.
