Heading off to Germany for a few days, I packed my iPhone with a couple of audiobooks and threw a Ken Follett paperback into my carry-on as well.
I was going to get some good reading time in on the 8-hour flight.
My plan was to play some solitaire on my laptop to kill time until my battery ran out, then I could switch over to the MP3 player until THAT battery ran out, and if we hadn’t landed by then, I’d resort to the paperback.
As it turned out, I still enjoyed the MP3 player (because I love audiobooks), but I discovered that these days the big planes have full wireless internet and an AC plug to boot. Ha. Little pun there.
Anyway, I ended up playing solitaire till I got bored, ignored a couple of IMs from my boss, and lost $20 playing poker online.
Then I listened to audiobooks until we landed (thanks to the AC plug). I’m glad I don’t own shares in any lumber companies.
No more paperbacks for me! But I AM going to go add some poker audiobooks to my bookshelf.…
