Daily Post asks: Terminal Time: You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is (sic) working. How do you pass the time?
I pull out my paperback and continue reading. If I finish it, I pull out the next one in my bag. Alternately, I head direct to the bookstore at the airport and buy a book, grab something to eat, might stop and have a cocktail, meet people, get into some fabulous conversations…
I will say I was on a week long cruise, reading the second volume of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. The first was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; the second, The Girl Who Played with Fire; and the third, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I tore that ship, all 10-14 stories tall, apart looking for the third book – nothing, nowhere – everybody had the first and the second. When we landed and I made it to the airport, I went immediately to the nearest bookstore within the airport and bought the third one, hard bound… and settled into at least a four or five hour wait, distinctly content to sit and read. What a tense, nail-biting series that was!
Update: my initial picture had the books out of order – agh! Replaced with one that showed the correct order. Heavens! That was a close unforced error!
