Would you pay to go to a reading at a bookstore?

Bookstores are facing troubling times. People are buying less books, and if they do decide to buy a book, they buy it digitally.

This is a problem if you are a book seller. A way to combat this problem is by charging admission to readings.

According to the New York Times, more and more people are going into bookstores, and wandering around. Then, when they find a book they want to read, they go home and buy it online.

Do you think it is wise to charge admission for readings? Would you pay to go to a reading? How much would you pay? Do you think it will help at all?
