website advice needed

Hey everybody,

I own, and have been paying to keep the rights for like 10 years, but have never done anything with it.

The best idea I've had was to make it into a fund raiser for the ACLU or Comic Book Legal Defense Fund by having librarians read their favorite dirty passages from books outloud...first minute free, after that charged to charity...but I don't really know how one could make that there are probably copyright issues anyways.

Should I just let it go and stop throwing money down that well?

Could I make any money selling it?

Could I develop a GoodReads type site where people rate their favorite erotica?

I still like the idea of owning this, but am beginning to feel like I'm wasting money.

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.
