I must come in just under the wire Ron (@41) Because as a kid I not only had a world book encyclopedia, but I actually read it from a-z!Originally posted by Ron Eggers:
Jay, you must be older than you claim. Most people under 40 only know about encyclopedias on CDs or DVDs. Not much weight there.
My parents still have the full set of World Book encyclopedias on the shelf in their library from the mid 50's. The 'D' volume falls open to the illustrated article on Dogs.
I can't imagine why.
Bob- I know you don't like searching online, but you may be able to find a replacement for your missing volume on a used book site such as www.alibris.comAt our dump's "swap shop" there was a set of encyclo's. Needless to say I brought it home for my kids! Only problem, its missing C-Ch!
