    Two dollars? I FOUND a set of Funk and Wagnells. By the curb, next to an old mayonnaise jar.

    Sad but true story:

    A local guy was going to open a new Resturant called “The Library” so he went around to all the 2nd Hand Book Shops and bought up whatever was cheap to use for “Decor.”

    Unknown to anyone, until opening day, he cut them off two inches back from the spines and glued them onto super-skinny Shelves so it would LOOK like a Old-Fashioned Library, even though all the books had been destroyed and were unreadable in any way, shape, or form!

    Karma stepped in, though, the palce crashed and burned in short order.

    Sad and Tragic.

    A used bookstore is one of my favourite places in the world.

    On my vacation a few weeks ago I went book shopping

    I was down to my last book except for a box with incomplete series in it so I made a list

    Been carrying around a Barnes and Noble gift card since Christmas so I hit that and then a used book store

    Found a dozen books filling in enough holes to give me about three dozen books to read and I barely went over budget

    Great for you, my mom does not like to read, so sister and I had plenty of summers when no school of absolutely no reading material. To this day she thinks reading will harm the eyes. Me I stocked up on reading books.

    The local library in my town won’t even take sets of encyclopedias as a donation for their annual used book sale. No one needs or wants them with the internet available.

    Second hand bookstores and the library. I find all kind of treasures for pennies on the dollar.

    Have a set of 1924 encyclopaedias. Makes for fascinating reading, actually, as many topics considered arcane now are covered in depth, while many “theories” for future inventions are discussed.

    Encyclopaedias are great – I miss the Britannica set we had when I was a teen – besides using them a lot like I do the web today, to look up anything and everything I didn’t know, I would just leaf through sometimes and come across all kinds of neat stuff. You can do that online, but SEO means you tend to be directed along similar paths to what you’ve done and seen and written online before.

    Lila and Boyd look like they’re about to do a “cheers!” toast in the last panel for some reason. Or maybe that’s just what I would do after hearing Boyd’s zinger.

    My family had a 1901 set. So brilliant. Had to leave it. So I took some pages out to save but over time last them too. Well before Pluto’s discovery in 1930.
