Airport Novels


That's right people. The Airport Novel. Serious stuff.

According to Wikipedia: "An airport novel is typically a fairly long but fast-paced novel of intrigue or adventure that is stereotypically found in the reading fare offered by airport newsstands for travellers to read in the rounds of sitting and waiting that constitute air travel."

I've spent a few hours huffing and puffing in a sad attempt to run from terminal to terminal trying to catch the vomit comets. So I have a total 15 minutes of experience looking in the airport bookstore. All I did was grab a magazine to cut out letters and glue on a ransom note.

But that's a whole other post.

I thought I would put together some titles of airport novels I'd like to see:

1. 1,001 Uses For Your Used Earplugs.

2. Airplane Etiquette: Why Bathing Is NOT A Sin.

3. Airport Recipes: How To Make A Recipe From Peanuts, Stale Coffee and Mint Flavored Toothpicks.

4. Murder In Bathroom Stall 9,804.

5. Deciphering Flight Attendant Lingo: Please Have A Seat = Sit The F*ck Down, I've Got 300 More Idiots To Strap In Like Drunk Three Year Olds On A Merry-Go-Round.


Happy Writing!!!
