10 Mesmerizing Books Perfect for Long Flights || a tipsy gypsy life #explore #travel #traveltips

Not having anything to read on a flight is my personal hell. Even worse is getting pumped up for a book only to get 5 pages in, realize the prose is terrible, and spend the entire 5-hour flight flipping through SkyMall whilst fighting back tears of regret.
