    Pat had an old set of The Britannica when I married her in 1975. From time to time I would pick up a random volume and read a random page. I also loved having a reference where I could look up so many things I wanted to know about.

    When Pat died in 2000 I downsized, and I gave our Britannica to one of our sons for his young family. If I had a brand-new up-to-date Britannica in my house now I might occasionally look at it. Or maybe not.

    P.S. The Brintannica, IMO, was a wonderful idea whose time had passed, unlike the King James Version, which was bludgeoned to death in its prime.
