Cory Doctorow: Alinsane sez, “I am in the process of digitizing and Flickr-posting the entire 1979C edition of the Sears Wishbook. Every year, my siblings and I would pore over the pages of the Sears Yearbooks, selecting the scores of items we hoped to get for Christmas. For many, the Sears Wishbooks were the (then) modern day equivalent of A Christmas Story’s Higbee’s Department Store front window.” Link (Thanks, Alinsane!)

If they had maybe 1981 or 82, I think I would recall specific pages I had earmarked and sweated over — mostly in the star wars and legos sections.
