There's no better way to inspire you to get some reading and writing done than to surround yourself with great works of literature. Simply having a well-stocked library nearby can make a writer feel more like writing. And if you're a reader, having a library at your fingertips is a must. Reading a few passages from a favorite book can also serve as inspiration for the writer, so stock the shelves with your favorite classics. And remember that books were around as research tools long before the Internet, so use them to get yourself in the proper literary mindset.
