Has the internet made travel guidebooks obsolete?
Are guidebooks dying out? Has the internet made travel guidebooks obsolete?
Arthur Frommer has been publishing travel guidebooks since the 1950's. Rememberů.."Europe on 5 Dollars a Day"?
I still use guidebooks. But Frommer's will no longer be published. Google purchased Frommer's in 2012, and now it seems that the plug is being quietly pulled on Frommer's print travel guidebooks. :(
