I received a set of encyclopedias at the age of nine. I went through those suckers like poop through a goose. I loved those books. Now, the internet seems to have replaced these wonderful tomes.
After I got married I threw them in a trash dumpster because I didn't need them anymore. My wife already knew everything anyway.
I do. I have two World Book sets: 1954 and 1991. Some of the info is out of date, but they are so fun to look through. Every time I open one up, I learn something about a subject I had never thought to study. My kids love them too. When we go on vacation, they often bring an encyclopedia or two along. They always amaze me with the knowledge they glean through the hours of looking.
I use the Funk & Wagnalls new encyclopedia from 1986 to keep up to date on current events.

I'm trying to expunge my account of all EBay products since I just realized they don't pay a commission and instead only pay pennies on large sales. Is there an easier method than going hub to hub and deleting...
