Plane reading

I am off to Tidewater VA this weekend for a quick turnaround trip. I plan to bring the gigantic Wages of Destruction on the plane. Despite the books physical weight, I think the plane is the ideal place such an intellectually weighty read. These are the sorts of books that require long periods of concentrated reading and what better place than the airplane? Too much reading time is 10 minutes snatched here and 20 minutes there, ideal for essays, travel or other short light pieces, but not for something that requires a bit more engagement.

I could be wrong though. That's why I am packing a mystery or two as well.
