Found an out-of-print HB astronomy book I loved in 5th grade (I'm 71)! Author (James L. Pickering) wasn't even on Wikipedia, but there's a Pickering who was an astrophysicist--I'm guessing a son. Plus I love the idea of recycling books to school systems/libraries in need.
I just found out (via investigative report in "The Nation" that Bill Gates, whom I thought was such a good guy, is trying to destroy public education--this is right out of the Trump/Mercer/Koch Bros playbook. "Let private charities support the schools"; & "I don't want MY taxes educating other peoples' kids (i.e. exposing them to dangerous ideas like evolution & critical thinking)".
Plus, let's give poor kids IPads in kindergarten--"You need them to keep up w/ the rich kids on the other side of town." Did you know that NONE of the SiVa billionaires lets their kids have screens until they're like 10? THEY know the brain/emotional damage 7 hours a day watching a screen can do to growing minds.
So keep those books out of the landfills, and FIVE CHEERS FOR BWB!
