Re: NFC: Proposed NFC Auction list

What's the point of owning it if you can't enjoy it?  And the only way to
really enjoy a book/magazine/etc. is to read them. :)  Although, after
you've read it... perhaps putting it away somewhere better than
"carelessly scattered in a pile of books" would be a good idea --
especially for a FIRST EDITION of Treausure Island. :)
