Holy shit! I bet that Paradise Lost goes for a pretty penny.

Good find. Hold onto that stuff. In all honesty, I'd consider it priceless.

I'd be so torn if I got those, on whether to sell or keep.

GREAT haul, either way!

I am extremely jealous of you.

Congratulations on the treasures you were given.

Cherish them, or I'll hunt you down. Mr. Green

Yeah, that's really neat. Odd reaction I had reading this but I can smell the old books. That's a smell you don't forget.

A movie adaptation of PARADISE LOST is actually in the works at Legendary Pictures with Alex Proyas currently attached to direct from a script by, most recently, Stuart Hazeldine. I, too, think that it has great cinematic potential and hope for the best.
