I wonder if you can opt out of phone books at this point. They still show up on my doorstep on a regular basis, like four different volumes. Who uses an analog phone book anymore? A monumental waste of paper. Mine go right into the recycling bin — I save one for using as scarp paper for gluing and craft and modeling projects.
