Some people walk into a bookstore, grab the book they want, take it to the counter and leave. Others take their time, consider many books and choose one. They choose one, but that doesn't mean the other books they considered were unworthy of reading. The latter isn't exactly uncommon. But even of the former, are they really so committed to getting that book that they will pay any price for it?
