What Do You Keep In Your Trunk For an Emergency Read?

In Case of a Reading Emergency, Pop The Trunk: Brian Doyle researches what people keep in their car trunks to read when they get the opportunity. The article makes for a fascinating read in itself.

I have to confess that it never occurred to me to keep something in the trunk of my car—I just usually grab whatever book I’m currently reading on my way out the door when I’m going somewhere that might provide me with an opportunity to read (e.g. doctor’s office).

Maybe I should prepare for a possible reading emergency after all. Something by James Joyce might be a good plan; I’d certainly never read him otherwise.

    I’m like you, I just grab what I’m currently reading. No matter where I go I take a book just in case there’s a minute or two. I do like the idea of having a book in the trunk, though. If I kept something by James Joyce in my trunk, I may resort to sleeping instead!

    You’re right–Joyce would likely have the same effect on me.
