I flew to the Festival of Faith and Writing last week, and choosing great books for the plane was a high priority. I’m a nervous flyer (shocking, I know) and so I like to read fast-moving, plot-driven books on the plane. (Guilty pleasure books are also high on my list.) I love gorgeous, lyrical literary fiction, but not at 30,000 feet.
It’s also about time to make the final selections for this year’s summer reading guide, so my reading list is long–good timing for air travel.
For this trip, I loaded up my Kindle Fire with:
For backup, I bumped these ebooks to the top of my queue:
• Eat with Joy (because the author was speaking at FFW, and I bought it ages ago)
And in case I had to turn off my electronic devices during takeoff and landing (horrors!), I packed Snobs by Julian Fellowes in hardcover.
Tomorrow is twitterature, but on Wednesday I’ll tell you something Anne Lamott (who was amazing) said about the families we grow up in. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts. (Is there anything else you want to know about FFW?)
What do you consider good airplane reading? If you knew you’d be stuck on a plane for a few hours and could bring any book(s) you wanted–regardless of cost–what would you choose?
