Not my father's encyclopaedia

What should I do with my complete edition Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1961, white leather bound, gold leaf trim, which I inherited?

Perhaps ship it off and donate it to Jimmy Wales... or Tim Berners-Lee... or Google... ;)


uh - save it! you're going to need it for heating when oil prices hit 200 / barrel.

(oh - that joke doesn't work here in quebec when we call get heating from hydro)

Dude, before you get rid of it, you have to read this book.

No need for that bro.

Totally a school library somewhere. Still plenty of kids who either don't have regular net access ($100-laptop-prototype notwithstanding) or who aren't allowed to use internet sources in their reports.
