Booking Through Thursday
Quick! It’s an emergency! You just got an urgent call about a family emergency and had to rush to the airport with barely time to grab your wallet and your passport. But now, you’re stuck at the airport with nothing to read. What do you do??
And, no, you did NOT have time to grab your bookbag, or the book next to your bed. You were . . . grocery shopping when you got the call and have nothing with you but your wallet and your passport (which you fortuitously brought with you in case they asked for ID in the ethnic food aisle). This is hypothetical, remember….
The books, at the airports I have frequented, are less likely to be discounted and are from a limited selection so purchasing one would be highly unlikly. I also would have already listened to my "American Life" or "NYC Radiolab" podcasts. At this point I would buy a magazine and then buy the local newspaper.
