I'm confused. That position isn't logical. Why spend money storing them,
if that someone isn't going to read them again. Why not sell them?

[or is that a dangerous idea that should not be suggested to the someone]

Apart from exploring that route of "when and why are they going to come
out of storage?" I have no good idea. And the silence suggests that everyone
else also can't comprehend the mindset sufficiently to know how to reason
with it.
