    Me too!!!!!! These were our "Internet" - I remember the set of World Book Encyclopedias that my parents bought. I used them for many, many school reports and my Mom would always use them to look things up that we were discussing, just like we Google today.

    Encyclopedias. These were our "Internet" and oh how I hated them so! We had about 70 on our shelf and it would take most of your homework time just trying to figure out which book the required information was in and oftentimes you still couldn't find anything very helpful! #Childhood Memories #1970s #1980s
