The amount of information we have now is incredible. You can type anything in your browser and get thousands of hits. Five years ago, I finally donated my encyclopedias, but I kept the two-volume dictionary. Mainly because I have a lamp sitting on it for decoration.
Surprisingly, my granddaughter asked me if I had the encyclopedias that came with them, stating, “I wish you still had them. I love reading these things. Knowledge is fun and empowers you to do the things you are passionate about.
