When I scanned this catalog I swore I wouldn't write notes for each of the 100 pages. Yet here I am on the education page, always my least favorite section of these. Maybe there's some weirdo who's really into this stuff, I don't know.

For the rest of you, go ahead and scroll down to the bottom to get to the PlayStation games and stuff you actually care about.

I still can't rationalize how that Barbie Hair Styler made the front page of this catalog.

The old Carmen Sandiego games were fun for all types of gamers. Seriously, dig up an old Apple II one and give it a try. The modern series has no real resemblance to the original.

In addition to Electronics Boutique, I also worked at a bookstore that Christmas of 1997. Those Wishbone books were hugely popular. I can't say the same for the software.

I've never put any serious effort into learning a foreign language. As you can probably tell from this site I have enough hurdles with English already.

Mercifully the education section is short so we can both move on to fun stuff. Hey, why is that Game Programming Starter Kit here and not by the games or productivity applications?
