For a couple of months there, I listened to Stephen King audiobooks nonstop.

It seemed like a revolution in my life.  Now all the time spent in my car would be Productive Time.  Now I would be reading!

Stephen King proved excellent for driving. The plots were quick and not too difficult.  The stories made me want to finish them.

 

Salem’s Lot

Misery

Christine

Dolores Claiborne

Carrie

Cujo

 

I made it a game.  Could I finish this book by Thursday? Or Friday?  How quickly could I get to the next?

I had it all figured out.  Driving for the rest of my life!

 

And then I didn’t.

I can’t pick out a specific turning point.  It was some time during The Shining.

I found that I didn’t want to turn the book on anymore. I didn’t want to turn any book on.

I downloaded a few podcasts, and then a few more.

 

This American Life

Anna Faris is unqualified

Women of the hour

Dear Sugar

Modern love

 

Suddenly my driving time was Productive Time.  I was listening to Important Things!  I was smart, interesting Podcast Girl!

I had figured it all out.

Driving for the rest of my life!
