The Encylopaedia Britannica is not going to be printed again. They’ve decided to only be availble digital. Therefore, the 2010 edition will be their final.
You can buy it here for $1,395.00.
Though I’m not surprised by the announcement, I still find it a touch sad. The Mister and I have a lot of books, magazines and print. I thought about buying an e-reader but I haven’t been able to do it. I’m sure I will buy one, someday, but it could never replace my love of having a print version. (I tried reading a magazine on a Nook and found it maddening.) Plus, you have to have books for a bookshelf and encylopedias look chic.
