    not to spam, so no titles will be given, but you will be shocked,
    to see how many esential books for every Black household,
    are "not available" or out of print,


    and many now with hard cover prices out of the range of the average family , some in the hudreds,

    so please buy for yourself, family, children and grands, and comunity library,
    cause when these books are gone

    they are gone!!!! and at the rate these state cuts are going,
    who knows what wil happen to public libraries

    Write to the publishers to support the digitization of those books. They'll be immortal at that point.

    we have been publishing on hard copy for over 5000 years acciording to ancient paparus,

    and we need something there for our progeny when the electric runs out or fails

    But you do have a point, we do need our own publishers cause anyone could wipe out a brother or sisters database of Black knowledge

    Digital forms are what have been producing hard copies for the last 3 decades. A person can make a hard copy if they're determined to do so themselves, or use many of the various services (copy shops, print-on-demand) out there .

    You do have a fair point about accessing it in digital form without power, but storing them doesn't require power, and it'll have plenty of redundancy if backed up on the Internet (gmail inbox, dropbox etc.).
