Ramblings of a Coffee-Addicted Writer!
When I was a kid, I would sometimes read comic books in the back seat of my parents' car, but I couldn't always concentrate. My two sisters were a huge distraction, as we sometimes had fights in that back seat. Lol.
Now, as an adult, I'm usually able to read in the car, but only nonfiction books or ebooks, as well as short Internet articles. I can't read fiction at all, because it's impossible for me to immerse myself totally in the world created by the author. Besides, my time in the car is too short anyway -- it's when my husband takes me to and from work, and when we go for Sunday drives.
On longer trips, like when we drive down to Key West, I can concentrate much more easily, so it's possible for me to read either fiction or nonfiction. These trips are rare, though....
In the past, we've gone to Orlando by Greyhound bus a few times, and I tried to read on the bus, too. Now THAT was totally impossible! No matter what I tried to read, I would always fall asleep. Needless to say, this bothered me a lot! My husband used to laugh at me, because I would stuff two or three books in my backpack along with some clothes, and we usually spent only weekends in Orlando. Lol.
