While Driving to Work

whie on teh way to workFinish the Sentence FridayThis week’s sentence is “A funny thing happened on the way to…”

While I was driving to work I saw a woman driving in her car and she was laughing so hard. Seriously she was busting a gut, laughing like a lunatic. She finally pulled the car over, trying to catch her breath. What could have been so funny?…Oh wait that was me when I was listening the audio versions of these books.

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened – Jenny Lawson

While I was driving to work I saw a woman screaming and violently hitting her steering wheel. What could have made her that mad? There was no one else in the car? Maybe she’s mentally imbalanced.

So obviously I’m the crazy lady in car reacting to audio books as I commute to work. What books have you recently read that have caused the biggest reactions? Isn’t amazing the power of a book? My son enjoys books as much as I do and I hope when he’s older, we can listen to his chapter books in the car…how awesome would that be?

  1. I love how you tackled this one and seriously love that you listen to audiobooks on your way to work. And yes I am glad I follow you on Goodreads, too! By the way, I just finished, “This Is Where I Leave You” and if you want a good laugh totally recommend and will be highlighting this one soon on my blog, too 🙂

  2. I love a great audio book. When I first moved to DC from Colorado, I used to drive home for the holiday and spend a few weeks there. It’s a 25 hour drive and audio books SAVED me. Secret Life of Bees is one of my all time favorites for touching and David Sedaris’ “Me Talk Pretty One Day” for funny. I have read a few on your list and will check out the rest! Great way to finish the sentence this week Karen. You rock.

  3. I’m a HUGE fan of audio books. I highly recommend the audio versions of the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series. Lorelai King does an awesome performance.
    For a good cry, might I recommend “The End of Your Life Book Club” or “Still Alice”?
    I’ll have to check out Harlan Coben. A coworker suggested Coben, but I haven’t got around to reading any yet.

    • I started to read another of her series of books…but the second book was hard to get into, I’ll look into it. OMG… I don’t know if I can cry again, LOLOLOL…it was bad showing up to work sobbing.

  4. Love this!!! What a great idea for this prompt! I’m a huge Harlan Coben fan. One of my problems is when I can’t remember whether I’ve read a certain one of his books, and then I end up rereading it! Ha! Oh well. Loved Gone Girl. I HAVE to read Jenny Lawson’s book. What is taking me so long? Great post, mama!

  5. I have not read as many books since I’ve been blogging. I’m cutting down on blogging but I still don’t seem to have the time. I’ve tried a couple of books on tape but haven’t gotten into them. Maybe I just picked the wrong books.

    • I know how you feel…I am so behind with reading blogs and cant keep up. If I had to read at home, I wouldn’t have the time…the only reason I read so many is because of my commute..

Would love to read your thoughts
