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….

This is REALLY hypothetical, because I would NEVER leave without anything to read! Mais, si vraiment je me retrouve dans une situation désespérante pareille, je cherche des revues dans l'avion, ou une librairie dans l'aéroport avant d'embarquer, pour être sûre d'avoir quelque chose à me mettre sous la dent ! Mais si le temps de vol est court, genre moins d'une heure, je crois que je pourrai survivre sans livre...
