Questions About Caleb Carr

Books for the plane?

TravelReadingFilter: My wife and I will be crossing the Atlantic next week. I need some reading material for the six hour (plus) flight, so I'm turning to the AskMeFi collective. Recommend away. One condition, no hardcovers, as they take up too much bag-space. Trades are preferred. Another condition, nothing too academic, as I’m going to be reading these books under whatever conditions the plane provides. What I Like: Neil Gaiman, The Devil in The White City, Robert Rankin, The Men Who Stare At Goats, Warren Ellis, The List Of 7, Caleb Carr, and several others.
