Time to read again
By user13366129 on Okt 03, 2007
On my way to the US again this year, it's been time to read. 11 hours on a plane can get boring... So, I went to the Airport bookstore in Frankfurt and skimmed the available englisch paperbacks. I left the store with three books, more on that later...
During the first hours, I finished reading Peter Glotz's book "Von Heimat zu Heimat", his recollections of his political career in the Fed Rep of Germany. The last chapters sounded a little bit disillusioned and skeptical as to the future of the political class worldwide.
Then I started to read one of the books, I bought at the airport store, the new book from Elizabeth George, What came before he shot her, because the text on the back did imply it to be a new Lynley book. I'm one third through, but Havers nor Lynley did appear so far, still it's interesting and a good read.
In the airport store I did meet a biologist from Chicago also scanning the books. I did propose to read Frank Schätzing's The Swarm, but he said, that he doesn't like to read science fiction, so I recommended Henning Mankell's Chronicler of the winds, which he took. Sadly, I didn't exchange addresses, so I will not know, whether my recommendation suited him.
I also used the time on the plan to read very old newspapers that kept piling up on my table at home...
With that I arrived refreshed at San Francisco and drove to the hotel.
