You know, I had guessed telephone book, but I also thought of other answers. What about a checkbook?

my answer was checkbook but after reviewing the teaser i must admit a telephone book was a better answer. a library probably has a telephone book but you cant check it out. Wonderful teaser.

There should be pictures of the emotions next to the comment box. Use click one of them to add it the your message.

Same here, ace. REALLY good one! I didn't figure it out, because I didn't know telephone books were only for the
"rich".

I've got a ka-jillion phone books, some dude just keeps droppin' 'em by every year. Why would I (or ANYONE) want to check it out at a library? Very interesting though!

i thought bible too. That is because before Gutenberg invented the printing press was invented, the bible was hand written by monks of the time and, therefore, were very valuable.

If we wait long enough, telephone books will be obsolete. Just look up everyone on the internet, the site of your choice.

Bibles have long since been available to everyone, you can buy them in bookstores and borrow them from a library. Apart from those minor issues, it's a perfect answer!
