    If I win, I will hide the books (all 20 of them) in a secret compartment in my house, and I will let you look at them only if, when I open a random volume and point at a random word, you can spell the word correctly and give me its meaning.

    OK, actually that’s not true. I’ll share, because if you win, I don’t want to fight you to look at the books. I want to sit in your living room with you and just stare at the books awhile delighting in them, and then I want to sit with you and ooh and ahh in delight as we look up new words and explore etymologies.
