    1. The word encyclopedia instantly takes me back the college library with several of them around me just trying to find information on the history of Genghis Khan. 🙂

            1. My son’s first computer in the mid nineties came with Encarta Encyclopedia by Britannica, which is now a free download.

              He ask if I had a computer when I was growing up as a child. I laughed so hard he thought something was wrong.

              When I explain to him what an encyclopedia was, he never grasped the idea until I took him to the library. LOL!!

    1. I use a pen from time to time for a nostalgic feeling. Lately ,I have penned letters to family member using a quill and pen. I don’t think they notice. 🙂

  3. Neither Mom nor Dad were college educated. They were however, pretty smart . We always had books and I can remember Mom reading to us at bedtime either from Mother Goose or from another of several different story books. In our small Pennsylvania town the grocery store offered a basic set of encyclopedias at a low price per piece with the purchase of a certain amount. I used those until the edges were worn and wish I still had them today. Thanks Mom and Dad.

    1. I think in the near future an original set of encyclopedias will only be found in a museum.
