The end of the printed phone book?

Unwanted phone books
I've been seeing these orange plastic bags of phone books around town since last week. They certainly do appear to be unwanted, and they're going straight to the recycling bin in many homes and businesses. I wonder how many trees had to be sacrificed to produce this latest unwanted batch.

Is this the beginning of the end of unsolicited printed phone books? I sure hope so.

These are some of my favorite on-line directories.

What are some of yours?

Online directories are helpful, but there are some reverse phone searches that can come in handy as well when you're trying to identify unknown numbers. Anywho has this feature but it's database is really limited so finding numbers is really difficult (I couldn't even find my own number or my university's number there!) ... try this reverse phone look up, it's pretty accurate and cheap.

superpages is my favorite but mostly you can just use google and find what you need. pretty easy in the long run.
