Random Musings on Chicago Hawaii 2008 trip (1)

One of my joys of travelling is that I have time to read. Although I do complain about plane delays, I also enjoy the long flights. Squashed into the seats and packed like sardines, there are however, certain benefits for me. For one, during the journey, I am totally in the hands of the pilot and the crew. I am not expected to save anyone's life, or salvage anyone's soul, or to change the world; squashed in this tin can in the sky. There is nothing I can do about it. I just let go and enter the moment. The food and drinks come at regular intervals. Though there are in-flight entertainment, I normally do not use then . I prefer to read or write. I find the hours of the journey great because it allows me time to read uninterrupted. Above are the books I read for this trip.

Wow that's a lot of books to bring along even on a long plane trip.

Speed reading I suppose!

Hi blogpastor,
You should have seen the books he brought along for the Greece trip - not only for the flight but for the travel in the coach as well!!

hi blogpastor and kar yong,

I love reading and would have brought more but I am limited by the airline luggage weight limit and the thought of lugging all these heavy books around.

I do read fast :)
