The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks

I am officially giving up after three months having read nearly 200 pages.


There is just so much damn dialogue about the most banal uninteresting things. There is absolutely zero chemistry between anyone. Everyone is so one dimensional and I have no idea how anyone found them interesting enough to pursue a relationship, let alone write about it. The romances were the most uninteresting, blasé things I have ever read, and I have no idea why anyone thought they would make a good book?


Maybe I’m too used to reading interesting (if sometimes Mary Sue) characters in my regular literature, but there is nothing interesting about any of the characters or their situations and resolutions. This book may as well be called ‘Life’ and it’s boring as fuck (it’s literally called ‘The Longest Ride’ because life is the longest ride). Regular issues that regular people go through? I don’t find that interesting in fiction.


But I watched the movie, so does that count? Also Scott Eastwood is gorgeous, so was the scenery, and I liked the changes the film made from the book, it made it a better, more coherent story.


Here’s some Scott Eastwood appreciation:

2018 Ride Sharing Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Status, Trends, and Forecasts 2025

The global ride sharing market is projected to reach USD 169.82 billion by 2025.

In order to meet the rising demand of transportation services, new age technology solutions and adoption of such solutions by the population has given birth to innovative mobility models, such as ride sharing and on-demand cars in developing countries. For instance, from 2016 – 2018 in Myanmar, four ride sharing companies are catering to the rising transportation demands, two of them are domestic, and while other two are international.


For riders, the first advantage of ride sharing and on-demand cars is the omnipresence of car rides at their preferred location and time, leading to better service levels. The second advantage is with the drivers, who get the flexibility to work as per their convenience and chose the customers they wish to offer the service. The technology ensures that the number of trips is maximum with minimum idle waiting time, subsequently, leading to optimized benefits. Hence, these factors have driven the global ride sharing market.


Further, ride sharing has reduced environment pollution such as air, land and noise. The carpooling services launched by ride sharing companies are helping to curb the emission of CO2 into the air. For instance, in 2014, Uber launched its first Uberpool service in San Francisco where people started sharing their ride who are travelling in same direction in order to save cost. This service also helped in the reduction of 120 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission in San Francisco alone only in one month time.

The benefits of ride sharing technology are showing impacts in the healthcare industry also. This includes delivery of real-time data, immediate feedback of patient, notifications in case of driver delays and the reduction of driver’s waiting time during appointments. Thus, resulting in an overall improvement of patient care with greater safety, efficiency, and reliability.

U.S. dominated the overall North America ride sharing market in 2017. However, Canada is witnessing demand for ride sharing services with the increasing population due to migration of people from abroad in search of education and jobs. In 2015, 20 ride-sharing services were operational in Canada servicing over 336,000 members and with a fleet exceeding 5,200 vehicles. Between January 2014 and January 2015, car-sharing memberships grew by 50% in Canada.


At present, the comparative landscape of the global ridesharing market is consolidated. However, over the period of time the market is expected to become highly fragmented which would include more global and regional companies. As there are no major barriers for new entrants many new players are entering into the market.

Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck (Southern Eclectic Novella)
Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck - Molly Harper, Amanda Ronconi

If you read the Southern Eclectic novels, this is a prequel back story for one of the characters, Marianne, and how she ended up with Carl.


It's short, but it covers all the bases, introducing most of the family, including one character that dies before the full-length books begin.  We get a bit more insight into Donna, Marianne's curmudgeonly mother.  Less funny than most of the other books, it's sweet in its way and since I went in already invested in the characters, I enjoyed it well enough.
