No More Encyclopaedia Britannica Books

Do you remember this guy?  He was in commercials for Encyclopaedia Britannica in the early 1990’s.  It seemed he always had some report due for school!  How do you think HE took the news that Encyclopaedia Britannica was discontinuing their print editions after 244 years?  I guess the internet has rendered those books outdated…much like this guy’s mullet!

The company WILL continue to publish their online edition – for a fee, of course.  The full report is HERE.

While I never had Encyclopaedia Britannica, my family did buy a set of World Book encyclopedias from a door-to-door salesman in 1982.  I think they are still on my dad’s bookshelf…dusty!  I spent many a long night using them for school.  One time, I wrote notes inside with a pen.  I can STILL feel the punishment!

    Hopefully we will still retain enough information to never have that haircut come back into fashion again.
