And I can't forget the books. Ever since I was a kid, I also always had a book with me. I had an hour bus ride to and from school, so I got a lot of reading done. (A girl can get through the Lord of the Rings series pretty fast when you've got two hours of solid book-time every day.) A good book is still my favorite way to pass traveling time (sorry, magazines -- you're my second love). Here's my recommended green reading list for your next trip. (Some of which I've read; some of which I've been meaning to read.) Remember to pick up the paperback versions -- they pack better!
