    It’s the fault of the solicitors and spammers — no one wants to be listed anymore for fear of all the ads and junk calls.

    Too bad they don’t still distribute phone books. I can still find a number faster with with one of them compared to phone, tablet or PC

    As someone who worked decades for a newspaper, I never thought I’d see the day when I didn’t read a newspaper or use a phone book. But sadly, that day has arrived. And when the phone books come (and they still do – what a waste of a tree!), they go from my front porch directly into the recycling.

    Used to like watching those big muscle guys rip phone books in half, now it’s just not the same watching them rip tablets in half anymore.

    When I was a city mail carrier we used to deliver them a couple times a year. Lots of labor. I always hoped that people would recycle them rather then throwing them. Lots of complaints about them

    I much prefer the phone book to using If you’re not sure how to spell the name, you could run your finger down the column until you found it. Now, unless you know how to spell it, you’re sunk. And if you don’t know the zip code – aka the name of the little berg when they live – WhitePages can’t find it, anyway.

    And I love the way they give you alternate suggestions. Look for the local hospital, and you get numbers for two interior designers and a veterinarian. Yeesh.

    Reminds me of those annoying Yellow Book commercials.
