My mystery for today

I can remember having Encyclopedia Britticana and World Book for years. Loved World Book. Used it alot while in school. No computers then--not even electric typewriters--only manual ones. I still have my old Royal typewriter and have it displayed in my house. Had it in the case for years but got moldy so cleaned it up and displayed it. Also have our thermos from grade school displayed also.My typewriter is about 65 years old and the thermos a little older. This puzzle brought back memories.

I recall those books as well. We had the World Book series. The series had a stand too.

We had both of those sets of books. World Book had its stand and my dad built one for the Encyclopedia Brittanica.

We had Brittanica only. It had a lot of words but not many pictures. I always liked the World Book better. I used that at the school library.

Yes, I liked the World Book set better too. How many students do you suppose that set of books helped over the years? Do young people now have such a reference other than the internet? One can't, it seems, even always depend on the internet to be correct.

You're right about that. I think Google is the new encyclopedia. It's great in some ways, but there is so much bad info on the internet too. They have to know how to discern bad from good. Maybe teachers only allow them to use certain sites for reports.

I don't like Google. I use Bing.

Yeah well Bing can have incorrect answers as well. My husband asked me a question about a cast member from the movie The Breakfast Club. He wanted to know the blond actors name from the movie. I looked at Bing and the actor wasn't even listed. The actors name was Anthony Michael Hall.

Yes, I know none of them are perfect. But I prefer Bing over Google.

My husband and I went over to the UK to visit his family. It was our second visit. We were told to leave room for big books. We did. And....we came home with their set of World Book. My husband had it in his room when he was going to school so they wanted him to have it. And now it resides in the bookcase in the upper hallway.

I've been to London a couple of times. The 2nd time I went my father took the grand kids. He hired an european travel company. The name is so cute and they took care of everything. Air, hotel and even restaurant reservations. They also took care of the tickets at the attractions.

My family and his family live in the UK. His parents are now deceased. My parents are still alive but both now have cancer. Father and stepmother in the UK and mother is in Canada. Finances will not allow me to go to the UK and maybe that's better as I am Daddy's girl, even now.

You have that right cannj. I love hearing pages turn and the smell of books. Everything is so high tech anymore. I think it takes the joy out of actual reading. I know there are people in the church I go to use electronic devices. Our pastor often says he loves the sound of pages from the Bible being turned. Nothing like that beautiful sound. Have a blessed day.

I can't imagine reading the bible on an electronic device! The pages of a bible have such a special feel to them. I love having an actual book to read, reading on the laptop gives me a headache. Blessings.

Amen to that cannj. I hate ereaders. Books are so much better.Have a blessed day.

And I like both. I don't lose books to folk who forget to return them when it's on an ereader. Plus I can read at night as the screen lights up. I don't need a light when reading on the way home in the car. No, no headache here!
