The phone book seems to be going the way of other things no longer needed or of much use. I actually have a drawer full of phone books, no doubt some ready for the recycling bin. Recently my brother called to ask for help in finding the number of a local business. Being near the drawer of phone books I checked and it wasn't listed anywhere. Walked to the other room, quickly Googled the business, and voila there was the number. I feel rather like that drawer of phone books, outdated, unused and ready to be recycled.
