I don't agree with that statement (not directed at you - I know you are quoting someone). Authors want their work to be read by as many people as possible. Stories and books are there for everyone to read. Surely it must feel great for people to love your work so much that they need/want to share it with others?

Despite not using the library as much as I should - Im always lending books out to trusted friends. I can't imagine books only being available for those privileged enough to afford them. That just seems inherently wrong to me. Like the burning of books.

I can definitely see that side of it too. That's why it's something I only hold myself to. I've never even told anyone else I feel that way about it.
