It’s a Digital World

Without a doubt, reading is my favorite pastime.  I always wanted a library room with walnut shelves and one of those ladders you pushed around to reach the highest shelves.  Instead, we have a thousand books scattered around our home, in bookshelves large and small, and various boxes in the attic.  And an old set of the Encyclopaedia Britannica in its special bookcase in an upstairs bedroom.

This morning I read that after 244 years of publication, the last printed sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica have left the pressroom.  From now on it will be digital.

How many college students tried to earn a buck going door-to-door selling the Britannica?   I tried it.  Hated it.
