This chapter is about readers who are able to finish the story or reach the end of the book. It comments on an assistant university professor who decided to scrap his library after being offered a job in Hollywood. It argues that leaving academia doesn't require leaving one's books behind, nor does quitting teaching necessarily suppose a disaffection with literature.
