[Reading Writers] What’s the best kind of book to read on an airplane?


I’ve spent the last few weeks on the road, which has its good and bad points. It’s not so good in that I’m away from my family a bit more than I’m accustomed to. It’s good in that air travel is ideal for reading! But what’s the best kind of book to read on an airplane? Today, Emily joins me to talk about my most experience with this on Reading Writers.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • The name of the worst book I’ve purchased at an airport;
  • Why Emily wouldn’t let me purchase Norm MacDonald’s memoir; and
  • What I believe is the best sort of book to read when you’re traveling.

A few of the books discussed in and inspired by this episode

Note: in mentioning these books, I am not saying I approve of all the content within their pages.
