Airplane reading

As the departure date for our highly anticipated trip to Amman approaches, I found myself discussing with Jeff the other day the very important issue of airplane reading.

We went on an on about what to take on the plane and what not to.

My top recommendations were: Harry Potter and John Grisham — both are page turners and very engaging.

As a matter of fact and as preparation for the upcoming trip, I have already begun reading John Grisham’s The Pelican Brief (No, I haven’t seen the movie) and it is as I expected: a page turner and very engaging.

  1. it’s a two/three hour trip… enjoy the in-flight entertainment and bala falsafeh 😛

  2. Qatar Airway flight entertainment is not always entertaining especially if you are flying to an Arab destination.

    On some occasions they tend to run Egyptian movies on Arab flights!

    I guess the philosophy is third world movies for third world countries! No thanks I pass! Back to Grisham.

  3. Well, when the in-flight entertainment is boring, there’s nothing better than a nice book to shorten the flight.
    As for The Pelican Brief, I didn’t read the book but saw the movie, and I really liked it, so I’m guessing the book is even better.
