read a book, get rid of your car

Save Money, Breathe Easier, and Get More Mileage Out of LifeOn the Bike Skirt blog, Elisa reviews the book How to Live Well Without Owning a Car by Chris Balish, with some interesting followup comments.

Another book with similar topics but a different approach is Divorce Your Car by Katie Alvord, which is reviewed on the BikeCommuters blog. This review suggests that Alvord’s book tells you why to get rid of your car and Balish’s book tells you how. BikeCommuters has a whole series of book reviews at, where another book Traffic by Tom Vanderbilt is reviewed and recommended.

Unfortunately you won’t find these books in the Carson City Library, but I have copies of the Balish and Alvord books to loan.

If you all have books to suggest on transportation alternatives, please pass them along.
