RIP Donald J. Sobol

Did you grow up reading Encyclopedia Brown books?  I did.  I was in love with those books and always learned so much.  I was deeply saddened today when I heard the news that Donald J. Sobol, the author of those wonderful books of my childhood, had passed away on Wednesday at age 87.  He will be greatly missed, but his work lives on.  Encyclopedia Brown has NEVER been out of print and has been translated in various languages.  Rest in peace.
