The last few days I have been on vacation with my mom, sister, niece and nephew and we are currently on our way home. More on what we did and saw later this week, but for now I want to talk about airplane reading.
I know quite a few people who don’t like to fly, but I absolutely love it. Which camp are you in? I think one of the reasons that I enjoy it so much is that it gives me a couple of uninterrupted hours to read. There are actually some books that I associate with the trip that I took and read it. My favorite books to read while on an airplane are mysteries–or at least, books with a mystery involved. But I’ll read anything, really. Here are some of the books that I associate with trips that I took:
Out of the Shadows by Kay Hooper. I credit this book as the reason that I like to read mysteries while on an airplane, because it’s the first book that I remember truly losing myself in while traveling. I read this in high school when I returned home from Washington DC. I started it on the plane and by the time we landed I only had about 100 pages left. I finished the book as soon as I got home that night. It’s the third in a series, but I read the first two shortly after.
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. I went to London for spring break my senior year of high school and on the plane ride there I read this book. Reading this on a plane felt like the perfect time to read it, as Robert Langdon spent time on a plane in this book too.
The Pact by Jodi Picoult. This was the book that I read on my way to Senegal after I graduated high school. This is a pretty intense book to read in general, but I was already emotional traveling to Senegal by myself for a few months.
This time, I sat by my niece on the airplane and we both pulled out our books to read. I read The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult and she read Wild Born by Brandon Mull. I haven’t decided what I’ll read on our way home yet.
Do you like to read? What do you like to read and do you associate any books with certain trips that you took?
