I’ve been avoiding books till I summon up the courage to make some hard decisions. The Encyclopedia Britannica set was an exception. Not only was it published in 1961 but it was missing the “C” volume – probably used as a booster seat years ago. Who uses hard copies of encyclopedia anymore? I called the library for advice – one of the excellent free services of our society. They of course could not use such a dinosaur but they suggested that I donate it to their Friends of the Library sale. No, most bibliophiles would not buy an old encyclopedia either, BUT, they said that some realtors buy such books to use as display pieces in condos or model homes. Some developing countries may be able to use the books also, but shipping them would be expensive. I was happy to have a better use for these volumes than recycled paper.
