But at what cost?

This week's Booking Through Thursday is:

If I could give a brand new, really good book by your favorite author (living or dead) RIGHT NOW, what would you be willing to do for it?

Ooh, tough one. If it's by a living author, I'd have the patience to go through the normal channels and pay standard retail prices for it. For a genuine newly-discovered Charlotte Brontë or Jane Austen, though, well... That would just be the most amazing thing, and having something like that in my hands would just be priceless. Add to that the fact that it actually WOULD be pretty much priceless, as something that unique would fetch a vast sum from the right people.
