What am I supposed to do with my large PDR?

Like many U.S. physicians, I receive a free copy of the PDR (Physicians' Desk Reference). Who still uses this large book? I've been using the Internet or a PDA/smartphone for many years and I don't know what to do with these large books. They could be saving thousands of trees by saving these books and sending CDs or a pamphlet that includes a hyperlink and a special code.

Speaking of the PDR, the mobile version of the PDR called mobilePDR is coming back! It used to be available, then it disappeared, and now it's coming back. It will be available for a variety of smartphones including:
Apple   Windows Mobile  Palm  Blackberry  Symbian  Android
Apple iPhone; Windows Mobile; Palm OS; BlackBerry; Symbian; and Android

Do you still use a PDR?
PDR Network combines the Health Care Notification Network (HCNN) and the Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR) to provide prescribers with a complete, end-to-end service. The PDR is the leading provider of print and online pharmaceutical information to physicians, and the HCNN is the only FDA-compliant network that electronically delivers specialty-specific product safety notices to prescribers. Improving patient safety and reducing physician liability requires prompt, expert delivery of important patient-safety information: PDR Network (formerly Medem) is ideally suited to fulfill this need.
