    Yes, back in the days when if you wanted to read a book, you had to go to the library or bookstore.

    Sigh. Small penguin versifier intimidated by large library of unread books….

    I think someone’s been reading Dr Seuss.

    Such a long, long time ago.

    I took my TV out in the back yard, wrapped a blindfold around it, taped a cigarette to its screen, and shot it. A couple days ago, the Cox guy came by and tried to sell me cable TV. I told him what I had done, and asked him why I should buy their cable service. He told me about the low introductory offer. I asked him what I would get; he said over 200 channels. I said, no specifically what will be ON those channels? He didn’t know. By the end of our conversation I had him talked into getting rid of his TV and Cox cable.

    Twain would have found the quitting of tv to not be difficult at all, as easy as the quitting of smoking. Something he proved over a thousand times….

    latest reports would suggest that twain did indeed refrain from watching tv.

    One of the fondest memories I have as a child was when my mom would take me to the library. Lived in a small town outside of Pittsburgh so our library was a focal point. Loved it! Introduced me to Grimm Bothers, Aesop, etal. Still use our local library, frequently, but now in Ypsilanti, MI. Hooray for libraries!

    Poor Opus. That fifth panel looked like Heaven to me!

    That didn’t last very long, did it Opus!

    All those books made me remember, “It’s not fair! There was time now! There was time…”

    The first summer with my grandparents, my grandmother, Mama-Walls (Big Mama was her mama, so we couldn’t use that name), took me to the library with her. She had to get another double arm-load of her “nurse’s stories” (Harliquin romances!) and told me to find something that interested me.

    I found Walter Farley’s Black Stallion and have been an avid (my husband would say rabid!) reader ever since.

    Same here :-) I grew up on a farm in rural Manitoba, Canada and I did a lot of reading of the books my parents had and the ones I bought to read :-)
