Libraries don't really fulfill my reading needs as they don't stock much in ebook/audiobook in science fiction or fantasy. I do read crime/mystery and they do fairly good on that mostly because the librarians read the same stuff. (I can't read paper books).

Paul, I sympathize. My late sister was a big reader and she also could not read in a car without getting queasy.

Near as I understand the discussions the politicians in this area have had about autonomous cars, the driver is going to be required to be paying attention and ready to override if needed when/if they are allowed on the local roads.

OTOH, we still don't have Uber/Lyft/whomever due to political issues with the taxi companies, security issues around criminal record checks and potential human rights issues. I find myself agreeing that Uber/Lyft/whomever are going to follow the same rules as the taxi companies. So full criminal record checks, compliance with human rights legislation, etc. which at the moment seem to be issues for Uber at least.

Oh, I'd be good for at least a decade. Easily. If the power went out and I lost access to my ebooks, I could probably get a year out of just the dead ents piled up at the foot of my bed.

(counts, multiplies, estimates...)

Okay, maybe eight or nine months before I'd get into the boxes under the main stacks. The boxes would probably take up the rest of the year, but that's harder to estimate; there are several hardbacks in those. At any rate, food would become an issue long before then.
