I’m in inspiration mode now, and one of my favorite things to do is browse the new hardcover books at the local bookstore. In my search for great reads, I jot down my finds. As soon as possible, I add the titles to my library holds queue and eagerly await each book’s arrival.
I look to the public library to meet my literary needs and inspirational whims. It works out quite well, borrowing; I don’t have the space or the budget to purchase new books. Plus, there’s just something about giving the library my business. There’s a sense of resourcefulness that comes with checking out books from the library.
