$50 million dollars -- I succumbed to temptation and bought a ticket. It cost me $11! Ouch. By which you may guess, I'm not a gambler.


Then again, writing fiction and hoping to make a living at it is proving a HUGE gamble. So there's that.


Anyways, I've decided to win that $50 million dollars tonight just to prove to myself that someone can be rich and sensible.


I'm planning to buy a lot of books. That's my definition of wealth: so much money that I never have to think whether I can afford a book, or ten.


I think buying books is a sensible plan. Maybe I'll also buy an island ... http://www.privateislandsonline.com/islands/the-duke-group-archipelago
