You know I don't like to brag, but I was reminded by the postal newsgroup that I was the very first customer to send out a mail order catalog. It only happened 300 years ago, so I nearly forgot. I had a list of science and technical books available from the libray (that I founded too, by the way.)
It was just my way of getting information into people's hands. And, a trillion or so catalogs later, it still works.
They said the Internet would make them obsolete, but some days, my satchel is pretty heavy with them.
What do you think of catalogs? Do you shop with them and why?
Drop me a note.
