The Human Internet

J-next-door appears ...

J: Do you have any books I can use for my science homework?

Me: What do you need to know about?

J: Hydraulic systems

Me: ... after a brief search ... "Will this do?" (giving her a science encyclopedia with two pages on hydraulics)

J: Great! I was stuck ... our internet's gone down ...

I am, apparently, the human version of the internet. Put something into my search engine and I can provide the answer. In book form.

I love the internet ... but I love books more.

Me too! I mean about loving books more. So far no neighbors have come tapping on my door, though several potential homeschooling moms have borrowed homeschooling books from me.
