  1. Once you complete a nice rainbow set, you will buy new books on Kindle. This is bad for the publishing industry, but good for Amazon. Did you hear that Jeff Bezos went to the moon? So neat!

  1. You will finally learn to appreciate the color “millennial pink.”

  1. You will sell all your possessions.

  2. The Strand will pay you fourteen dollars for your two hundred and fifty-one books. Even the millennial-pink ones. The Uber to the Strand will cost sixteen dollars.

  3. You will move to a remote cabin. As an act of self-reliance, you will print your own books, from memory. They will be bound in birch bark and organized by smell.

  1. You will be much happier. It’s like J. K. Rowling once wrote: “Happiness can be found in the darkest of places, if only one remembers to smell for wolves.”

  2. Even though you have never felt more at peace, the urge to check Instagram will suddenly seize you for the first time in months. You will log on and see that your friends have turned their books into TV stands. The TV stands will look chic as fuck. You will abandon your new life of simplicity and self-sufficiency, re-purchase your books from the Strand (for nine hundred and eighty-one dollars), and buy a new TV.
