      World Book Encyclopedia. We didn't have the internet in the 80s. Elementary school

      Encyclopedias...This is where we did our research! And they cost a bundle. My gram bought a set so we would have them to use. Computer of the 70s

    • Author Diana Fletcher

      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

    World Book Encyclopedia...got so much use out of our set...

    Rolling down the hill - best fun ever This is so true and we never got hurt or broke out necks, but I bet most kids today have never enjoyed this simple pleasure. Too bad as adults we can't just go out on break at work and roll down the nearest grassy hill!!! :-)you have to yell AS YOU WISH

    couldn't read enough of these, but not sure why my class doesn't like them

    Encyclopedia Brown - this used to be my nickname (it was meant to be mean by the other kids, but I liked it!)

    Remember when... checking out books. I used to like reading all the names below mine.

    I remembered playing this but couldn't tell you how to play it now.

    Clearasil - wouldn't have made it through my teenage years without it - I still remember that smell.
