"If the riches of the Indies, or the crowns of all the kingdoms of Europe,were laid at my feet in exchange for my love of reading,I would spurn them all."~ François Fénelon
Well, those are big words and I love the poetry behind them, but I also have to give myself their hypothetical challenge. If someone were to write me a check in exchange for giving up reading, would I have a price? Ten-million? A Billion? I know money can't buy happiness but if this were a serious proposal, I'd be a fool not to consider the offer. A hefty sum like that could solve several issues (of both personal and world-wide natures) and I could exchange reading about far off places for actually visiting them... Could your love of reading ever be bought?
