It wasn't that long ago when I could rattle off just about any phone number that I needed. All I had to do was think of the person and the number just came to me. Sadly, those days are slipping away. I guess that's why someone invented address books. They must have been getting old and forgetful.
This book was a gift to me and I've used it for years. It still looks good after years of being handled.
The front section of the book has a place for emergency numbers and also maintenance and other numbers you might not recall by name.
Besides the typical things most address books list, such as name, address, home phone, work phone and e-mail, this one has a place for notes beside each name, which comes in handy when I know a birthday or anniversary is coming up but can't remember when.
In the back, there is a "Dates to Remember" section which gives me a more organized place to list those birthdays and anniversaries, especially if it's for someone I don't usually call. Each month name also has the flower and birthstone of the month listed beside it.
Behind the dates section is a "Holiday Card List". I love this part. It has a place for the name and address and you can keep track of cards you send and received. This section covers 5 years. I love this feature.
The last part is "Directions". With GPS systems becoming more widely used, this may not be necessary for many people. But, for those that do, it lists the destination address and phone number, plus travel time.
This is a hardback book and has rings like a notebook so more pages can be added.
This was a wonderful gift for me and one that I use regularly.
