As we speak, I’m in the air over the Atlantic Ocean, heading back to the United States for a brief visit. Of course, I don’t entirely get a holiday, as I’m meant to finish my third dissertation chapter before I get back, but it will be nice. Meanwhile, I have to find a way to occupy myself on the flight over. Plane reading is always something I deliberate over. Do I want to bring something light and entertaining, or something a little more difficult since I’m a captive audience with no access to the internet? I tend to bring a variety, although I seem to have gone more in the direction of purely entertaining lately. Here’s what I have with me this time:
- The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough
- The Luxe, Anna Godbersen
- Flint, Margaret Redfern
- Shadow of Colossus, T.L. Higley
What kind of books do you bring with you when you travel? Or do you occupy yourself in other ways?
