If you can tolerate audio books, then you can at least make *some* use
of time otherwise wasted while driving a car, but I can't. And even if
I could it couldn't be anything other than pap, because there's no
opportunity to refer to footnotes, or easily go back a page.
Not that there's anything wrong with reading pap, I do it all the time,
but sometimes I like to read something meatier.
My normal driving background noise is mp3s of the Subgenius radio show.
