Do you have an encyclopedia set? Or are you like a lot of people and have gotten rid of them due to the easy access of information online? I bought this set many years ago at a yard sale, of all places. I think I spent $5 or $10 for the set. It is missing one book, and as stupid as it might be, it's always the one book I want to look at. It's the "Sa-Sn" book -- go figure.
We really don't use the set all that much. It's from 1986, I believe, so it's a bit outdated. Nathan uses it every now and then for his Language class, so that's good. I have no intention of getting rid of them yet, even though the books are heavy and take up a lot of space. I suppose I keep them mostly for nostalgia sake. I grew up with a set of World Books and it would just feel weird not to have a set of encyclopedias in the house.
How about you -- have a set, or are they a thing of the past?
