How to start off my curiosity for reading?

I want to begin reading more in order to inspire my creative abilities as a musician and lyricist. Anyhow, I don't know where to start. The only books I've read are (cliche) the Harry Potter series.

Anyhow, besides that, I don't quite know my taste. I started reading Invisible Man and found that a bit interesting and have read The Catcher and The Rye (all these being books that I've read of my own free will. I have also read Of Men And Mice and other tales due to school).

Recommended titles, genres, etc... would be appreciated.

    I honestly like non-fiction. Books that teach about God. Religion, those sort of things. I find it a fascinating subject. To learn new perspectives.

    The Pearl by John Steinbeck is one of my favorites. Short, but very powerful.
