Come with me and let’s get away from the blue tubes, big screens, flat screen, mobile devices, social media, etc. and let’s go back to the way things were, back to books, real books, with the excitement and anticipation of turning pages. Kids, adults, family members and everyone we know would sit down with a book and read or complete school assignments and projects. The joy of seeing color, text, graphics and ultimately the fulfillment of acquiring knowledge the old-fashioned way.
Going back in time, I remembered all or some of our textbooks were handed down to our siblings, and somehow the books stayed in great condition, because we kept each textbook covered with brown paper, until they started making fancy colorful book covers, and of course we used those too.
We were taught to preserve textbooks by not writing in them except with a pencil which could easily be erased, this way our textbooks looked new and slightly worn. We are proud to say that 85% of our books are used and in great condition and sold as-is.
