Reading On A Transcontinental Flight

Yesterday I flew into Seattle and needed something light to read on the plane. I didn't have much time to read because I needed to do some work and take a quick little nap. I needed something short and entertaining.

The last time I flew to Seattle my friend, Julia, gave me The Guernesy Literary Potato Peel Pie Society to read. I devoured it on the plane on the first half of the trip! What a read! I really enjoyed- the history and of course the beautiful love story. It was a quick, easy to read on the plane – that was just as entertaining as watching a movie.

Luckily this time I had People and Us Weekly! I have to say that I do love me some celebrity reading. I reserve most of it for plane trips. My friend Barb says that she is going to Guest Blog about her reading life about reality TV! I can't wait. Bring it B!

In this week’s issues a few things stand out to me that I would like to comment on

#1 Why are we still obsessed with Jen’s divorce of Brad- GET OVER IT! Already!

#2 What is so interesting and fascinating about the Kardashians? Please explain.

#3 I’m heart broken to hear about Corinne Bailey Rae's loss of her husband. How incredibly sad. I am so happy that she has made a new album. Writing really can be a life saver.

#4 Haiti

#5 I know why I don’t like Kate Gosselin.

#6 I am a huge fan of Drew Barrymore. Glad she won for Grey gardens, but I loved, loved Whip It! I also love that she is still dating the apple computer man, Justin Long!

#7 The two Kates and Halle always look amazing! I love the red dresses on Cameron and Beyonce. And Rachel McAdams definitely looks great in her black lace dress.

#8 Looking forward to Damages Season 3.

#9 Notes From the Cracked Ceiling looks appealing, a "might read".

#10 About the Conan scandal, I say "Go Conan!" (even though I have never watched a full episode of either of his shows.

#11 I think that US weekly this week actually provided more information than People this week!

Enjoy your travels! Enjoy your celebrities! Happy reading to you!

  1. When you travel with friends, you can think across texts using US Weekly, OK Magazine, and Star, like a book club might do. Trust me - it's fascinating - and fun!
