Because I have a limited perspective.
Books that have stood the tumultuous test of time, survived the harsh critiques of the ages, and gloriously emerged in this modern era as a "Classic."
My savings have been drained to dangerous levels by my book purchases.
Wall Street’s lust for wealth would probably be easier to satiate compared to my lust for books. To me, books are beyond amusement. I do not read books to kill time; I kill off other activities simply to have the leisure of a good read.
