Hard copy libraries are a treasure. When you visit most peoples homes, where’s the library? Where are the books? Where is the music?
Used to see this a lot in estate sales. Tv replaced books and music for many. Never could understand it.
My problem is running out of shelves.
I still have vinyl records.
You can put THOUSANDS of books on a thumb drive. [Gutenberg.org, for example]
You can put THOUSANDS of songs on a thumb drive or MP3 player.
Well I'm glad I kept that one on my bookshelf. Makes for much more chilling reading knowing that there are many in our country today who would happily roust Trump supporters and other patriots out of their beds in the middle of the night and take them to concentration camps.
Going into other people's homes, I take note of what books (if any) they have on display and take the measure of their intelligence based on that.
