7 Books To Keep You Entertained For The Long Flights To Those Three Hour Stopovers!

Article By: Zarmeena Ali


As much as we all love vacations, we also dread those long flights and those stopovers! Now, we’ve had our food, we’ve looked outside the window, mostly have analyzed the people sitting next to us and then what’s next? A person cannot watch five movies in a row, now can they? Or just keep on listening to the music and getting all fuzzy in the end of the ride! We’re not objecting to these things, but we also believe a person should spend a little time curled up in the blanket reading something which can provoke one’s thinking ability. Books soothe a person, it’s another world altogether. Similarly, tired of sitting through those boring stopovers with nobody to talk to or keep you company? Exhausted your resources of eating and exploring the duty free? We thought so too.

Don’t worry, find a comfy spot in Starbucks or Costa put your phone on charging and read these recommended books from our list!


1. The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck By Mark Manson

This book is every bit worth the hype. A friend was recently traveling to Bali and isn’t much of a reader, but she couldn’t put this one down. If you haven’t already read it, please do. It is an eye opener to how much ear we give to our society and what it has to say about us rather than keeping ourselves happy, exploring our full potential. It is quite entertaining and speaks directly to our train of thought. Since, the writer is mostly directly talking to the reader throughout, hence, making it a little too difficult to put down.



2. The Alchemist By Paulo Coelho

The constant theme of the Alchemist is to pursue your dreams and follow what your heart desires. During the journey of the story, there are lessons to learn and live by. And honestly who doesn’t crave a book by Paulo Coelho? Even if it is an old one!



3. The Power Of Intention By Wayne Dyer

This amazing read guarantees belief into the power of intention. Wayne teaches us that intention is not just something we do, but an energy, something that when we tap into, becomes a cocreator of opportunities in our lives. This inspirational read will change your life bit by bit.



4. The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read By Philippa Perry

This book is about how we have relationships with our children, what gets in the way of a good connection and what can enhance it. It is a must read on parenting and will help you to connect better with your offspring and how they connect with the world.



4. The Lean Startup By Eric Ries

The Lean Start Up offers entrepreneurs a way to test their vision continuously to adapt and adjust before they start. The author provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful start ups in an age where companies need to innovate more than ever. It’s for challenging your thinking and to grow the business simultaneously.



6. How To Win Friends And Influence People By Dale Carnegie

This book made it to Times Most Influential List. It is a self help book and that too a really good one. It teaches you how to be more genuine in your ways and to be a good listener. Winning people over not by winning arguments but practicing the best way to avoid an argument. Never say you are wrong to the other person but using a more tactful approach to the point in question.



7. Think And Grow Rich By Napoleon Hill

This is a personal development and self improvement book. Claimed to be inspired by a business magnate and later philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.



Flying offers the opportunity to enhance your mind to pass away the time rather than engaging in the same mind-numbing plethora of notifications day in and day out. So, try our recommendations and trust us, you certainly will not be disappointed it. Happy reading!
