Heh. I HATE not being able to read in the car. I remember when I was a kid, and swinging and reading (yes, I did that, too) started making me sick... I was SO BUMMED.


At least Josh can be fought off with, you know, driving. I generally just puke on the people trying to take MY books...


I also hate not being able to read in the car! My sister can do it just fine, and I would always nag her out of jealousy ("Oh, you're gonna get sick. You're gonna give yourself a monster headache. You'll be sorry later."). I've always been the first to get car sick, with or without a book, since I was a kid. I even get motion sickness watching movies sometimes. It kinda sucks.

Now I'm not one to endorse excessive drug use, but I swear Dramamine (or a cheap generic equivalent) is a total life saver. I take one for any lengthy car ride, which is pretty much any ride over 45 minutes, and now I can take along a good book.


I can read in the car, but only for a little while before I start feeling nauseous. I hate Dramamine, but I found a different solution: audiobooks! An Abundance of Katherines on CD got me to Grandma's house and back for Christmas.

Oooh! I'm so glad you reviewed this. I'd been debating whether to read it or not. Now I think I will.


ooohhh you are so bad for me. do you realize you are personally responsible for making my to-read list a mile long?

I wonder if one can get a more convincing and funny recommendation, "must read even if I puke."


I'm glad my mother was out of the room when I read this post, because I laughed so hard I got spit all over her laptop screen. I'm also now very much inclined to read this book.
