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….
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

I'd buy a book at the airport bookstore. Or I'd read the airplane magazine, or the directions for safety procedures, or the ingredients on the cracker wrapper or.....

I'd still read, somehow.


  1. I've flown quite a bit, but every time I get on a plane I still read the safety directions. I mean, what if they change? :-)

  2. I would also read something - anything! I love reading the airplane magazine, and the safety instructions whenever I fly, even if I have other things to read.

  3. Yup, I'm with ya! I think most of us bibliophiles would grab anything we could. I know that I resort to the shampoo bottle in the shower. :)


Thanks for commenting, so nice of you to visit.
