Cover Spying at the Airport.

I'm on my way to the National Lawyers Guild Convention, where not much reading or blogging will happen. That's fine, though, because the panels look amazing, and I'll be meeting up with some great friends.

In the meantime, I'm stuck on the plane. On the tarmac. Engines off.

Fortunately, I'm nosy, so I will fill up in on what books my fellow passengers are reading. Without further ado:

Man, 50s, suit, American flag pin. Finger Lickin' Fifteen, Janet Evanovich.

Woman, 50s, blonde curls & glasses. When God Whispers Your Name, Max Lucado.

Woman, short blonde hair, early 20s, Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law supplement. Joining me at Convention?

Male, early 20s, with friend, holding Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code in paperback.

Woman, dark curly hair, glasses, 50s. A Buddha in the Attic, Julie Otsuka.

Male, 30s, body builder type. The Ask, Laura Fredricks.

My choices, David Grossman's To The End of the Land, an the November issue of Runner's World, are pictured.

Love the people-watching log! I love looking at other travelers' reading material. I'm going on a trip next week and am already debating what books to bring.

Enjoy your trip!

Oh, this was a great post! Fascinating. It says a lot about people, what book they'll take with them on a trip, almost as much as you can learn by seeing what books they have on the shelves in their office or at home. Hope the conference goes well.

I love cover spying! I've read and love "When God Whispers Your Name" and I want to read "Budda In The Attic"!!!

This is fun. I usually do this: wanting to know what others are reading. Perhaps unconsciously comparing if you have similar tastes or you have a superior one. lol

@Rayna: Thanks! The trip is going really well. I think I managed to read 10 pages of my book!

@JNCL: I love checking out people's bookshelves at home. *so nosy*

@Vern: I read The Buddha in the Attic, but I've yet to write my review. I'm so behind!

@Nana: I think it's probably consciously in my case!

@winstonsdad Hi Stu! I've actually had a really hard time getting into "To the End of the Land." I've heard only good things, so I don't know if it's that I'm distracted, or what.
