It was lunch and I was with my kakis, Val and Justina. I can't recall what we were talking about but some how our conversation drifted to some of the books we read when we were kids.
Val and I got really excited ... because of a series of books that we had when we were kids: Charlie Brown's 'Cyclopedia. It had 15 volumes in the series and each volume dealt with a different theme, from the Human Body, to Energy, to Stars and Planets. Oh, we have such fond memories of these books.
That afternoon, I sat myself down to search for these books. It was quite a task because these books are out of print and it was quite impossible to get brand new ones. I managed to find a seller in the U.S.A who was selling her books at a pretty reasonable rate.
C was really excited when she saw a huge box and in it, all 15 volumes. That every evening, she started on volume 1 and didn't stop until I reminded her that it was late. The next morning, she brought another volume down to the car as she decided that she would occupy her time wisely while Daddy drove her to Art class. :)
