Good Reads For Long Flights?

I'll be doing several longhaul flights over the next few months, which was one of the reasons why I got a Kindle. I like reading on planes (when I'm not sleeping), but there isn't much space in the seat pockets for anything more than a Penguin paperback. Lugging the Steve Jobs biography back and forth across the Atlantic in December was "fun".

Next month I'm heading to Orlando via a rather circuitous route, so I'd love to have a couple of good books to read on my way.

So what would people suggest or recommend?

  1. From Kevin Murphy:

    Have you read Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle trilogy? At about 3,000 pages, it seems to be designed for Kindle.

  2. From Will Knott:

    Check out Charles Stross, Accelerando (sp) is open sourced but I think you would get a kick out of Rule 34.

    For Orlando, if you haven’t read Doctorow’s “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” it would be an ideal time.
