Back to reading spree

When I am travelling (read: while not driving/riding), I can do only two things – reading or sleeping. Continuous movement of the vehicle feels like a cradle to me. If I don’t have a book in my hands, and even if scenery outside the window is breathtaking, I can keep my eyes open for few minutes or maximum half an hour.
