Professor Zulmiro started the lesson with the following words:
"Today I will present you a new book with a magnificent story. It is a very special book, for it is a book that reflects your personality."
"Is it an heavy book Professor?" timidly asked a frail looking student with a big bag, almost as big as she, by her feet.
"I know you already carry a lot of books to school. This book in particular will not add a gram to your backpacks" reassured Zulmiro.
The Professor walked among the desks and started distributing the books. The students' hands reached avidly forward to receive the mysterious offer.
"It's true! The book is weightless!" mentioned a student when receiving the book. "Look! If you leave it midair it just stays there floating like a hot air balloon!" and the student pushed the book around with one finger while it undulated without support.
To Zulmiro, the book's weight was not the point he intended to focus on. However, before he could resume what he was about to say, someone raised a hand in the back of the classroom.
"I am sorry Professor, but there is a mistake! My colleague's book has a different text on the same page."
"Why did you look at your colleague's book?".
"Because I wanted to find out if you had given him a better book."
Zulmiro smiled, internally amused.
"There is no mistake whatsoever in the books' distribution and no student got a worse book. I have already told you that this book reflects the reader. Other books are a revelation of the author. Not this one. This book reveals you, your values and your mood. It adapts to each individual reader. Each page you make a decision and the fate of the story is altered accordingly."
Students were surprised and at the same time confused.
"How will know if we made the right decision?" one student asked.
"It's like real life. You don't know."
We have one of the books Zulmiro offered reserved for you! What will this book reveal about your personality? Will you choose the path of white or black magic? Or simply, will you opt for the path of your self interest? The choice is yours!
