If you could spend one day in a great library studying anything you wanted, what would you study?

People don't read and think for themselves anymore. Maybe this is an age-old problem, maybe not. Regardless, I hope that asking this question will spur people on to think about what interests them, what makes them curious, and to go and actively pursue knowledge on that subject.

To help people read, think and speak for themselves again -- that should be a goal of every human capable of thought.
