Phone book Firelog
Around here we have 4 different phone books, two for our area, and two for the neighboring big city. Every year we get new phone books and this year we even received repeats. I hate throwing things away you should know that by now =) So I found a way to reuse the phone books. I personally don't have a fireplace, but I know plenty of people that do. I rip off the covers and any glossy pages roll them up and tie them with string. We've have burned a few phone books in our burn pile and they burn forever. I'm sure these will to, put them on the bottom and keep adding the wood on top to keep you house toasty warm. I know I'm talking about a toasty warm house in the middle of summer, but hay winter is right around the corner.

*Although this is a way to reuse phonebooks, should you go ahead and use this idea, I take NO responsibility to those who use it. When fire and life is involved please be careful, and use common since.
