300,000 numbers in quadruplicate

Trying to do a little thinning of the accumulation in the house. I found FOUR full-size 2008-09 phone books, all by different phone companies. (We also have two reduced-sized copies.) My phone's camera really couldn't capture their true essence:


So I got out the big guns!


According to my Division of Government Communication's ruler (Isn't it ironic, Kfuj?), I have SEVEN inches of 300,000 phone numbers in quadruplicate. Where were all the tree-lovers before all these phone books magically appeared on my porch?

as soon as a phone book arrives on my porch, it goes into the recycling can. that's what the internet is for!

What is with these darn phone books constantly arriving. I have these too, David will bring them in and drop them on the dining room table. I don't get it!

I'm with y'all on why we need all those phone books. I completely use the internet for finding numbers anymore.

We must get 3 new phone books about 4 times a year. I keep one or two, just for the novelty of them, and the rest go in the circle-file. :)

I'm over 50 and I do use the phone book from time to time. Plus they are great booster seats for little grandkids. Auntie Em

They would make good booster seats for kids birthday parties.
