Sorting out books

As part of our packing we are sorting out stuff like books. Conversation with my 8 year old son.

"2001. This book is 8 years old."

"Well, actually, that book is much older. It is so old that 2001 was, in fact, the far future."

"What is it about?"

"It is about a time where we could travel into space and to the moon base and beyond."

"Umm, I think that is still the far future. Maybe it should be called 2039 or 2040."

We'll see.
