A chance to BE!!!  WOW!!!  If I had the chance to be a book I think I would

How much do they want for it?  Beware of etymological dictionaries- they can
be a bit misleading simply because the root meaning of a word is not
necessarily the way a word is used in a text.  Meaning is assigned by
context, not etymology.
