As the departure date for our highly anticipated trip to Amman approaches, I found myself discussing with Jeff the other day the very important issue of airplane reading.

We went on an on about what to take on the plane and what not to.

My top recommendations were: Harry Potter and John Grisham — both are page turners and very engaging.

As a matter of fact and as preparation for the upcoming trip, I have already begun reading John Grisham’s The Pelican Brief (No, I haven’t seen the movie) and it is as I expected: a page turner and very engaging.
