Weekend Assignment #70: Suggest a book for a long trip. You know, something to keep me from banging my head against the plane wall as I'm bored out of my skull at 36,000 feet above the chilly North Atlantic. I'm open to fiction and non-fiction, and I like to read from all genres. I don't mind something challenging, but this should be a book for enjoyment; I'm not planning to study for a test or anything. Please don't recommend a book that's sold over, say, 5 million copies, because that's waaaay too easy. So no Harry Potters or DaVinci Codes or the Five People You Meet in Heaven or most primary religious texts or stuff like that. You know what I'm talking about, here.

Extra Credit: If you have any special tips or techniques you used for dealing with long trips, I'd love to hear them.
1.I take my I-Pod loaded with pictures and Audio books.
2. I take a sleep mask from Brookstone. It's soft and blocks out all light.
3. I take a notebook and write longhand...thoughts along the way. It takes longer to write longhand and time passes faster.
4. I take plenty of snacks in my carry on bag plus bottled water.
5. I never go anywhere without my sound machine!!!!!!
Have a great trip!
