    Wow! The correct usage of a commonly used word instead of the incorrect usage of a commonly misused word.
    Caulfield is “nauseated.” “Nauseous” describes something that MAKES one nauseated. Riding in a car is nauseous to some people and makes them nauseated.

    So commonly ‘misused’ that it’s not incorrect any more. That train left the station decades ago. Personally, I just use ‘nauseated’ and ‘nauseating’ and interpret ‘nauseous’ from context.

    I would think that with a mind like Caufield’s, he’d never be bored….All you have to do is think of interesting things…or read a book……

    Number 1 definition of nauseous:

    affected with nausea; nauseated: to feel nauseous.

    The two literal senses of nauseous, “causing nausea” ( a nauseous smell ) and “affected with nausea” ( to feel nauseous ), appear in English at almost the same time in the early 17th century, and both senses are in standard use at the present time. Nauseous is more common than nauseated in the sense “affected with nausea,” despite recent objections by those who imagine the sense to be new. In the sense “causing nausea,” either literally or figuratively, nauseating has become more common than nauseous.

    These comments are making me sick.

    He’s in class. Most teachers don’t approve of their students reading books in class, other than the current text book.

    Caulfield today sounds like he was written by Tim McCarver.

    Answer to Caulfield’s question: Meniere’s Syndrome.

    @Edward Tonry

    I used to read in class a lot. Usually not the book that we were supposed to be reading. The teachers were actually pretty tolerant of it, although every now and then they’d tell me to put the book away. I think they may have been glad that a kid was reading for fun :)

    Caulfield at his desk appears to be anything but motionless.

    I have never seen anything like that in my entire life. In my public school we did absolutely everything but read. In my neighborhood people didn’t even read at home.
