    Motion sickness. Your equilibrium is set by the mechanations of your inner ear. Sometimes, some people are more sensitive to motion when reading in a car/bus. Looking out, toward the front of the vehicle and focusing on the farthest point straight ahead in the line of travel can help.

    Motion sickness caused by the equilibrium in your inner ear. I have that problem even in a car, if I'm not driving. It's an awful feeling and I hate it a lot.

    Motion sickness. It's from focusing on one thing while other things are moving around you. You can prevent it, though. If you have an IPod or some kind of music devices with ear buds......seriously....the bass from the music pushing against your eardrums will keep you from getting nauseous.

    Motion sickness caused by the conflict between your eyes focused on the page (which isn't moving) versus what you're seeing out of the corner of your eye (which is moving quickly).

    When you are focusing on something printed, and you are moving- it's the combination of the two that make you sick. The feeling of yourself moving, and the stuff outside the window that appears to be moving by makes you sick.
