You’re probably going to see a number of book reviews as I’m not going out to experience “life in Singapore” much at the moment.
Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase is a compilation of facts and funny stories by the author and others about flying. All of the stories are super-short, so this is a great one for parents to read or to keep in the bathroom. Many are quite literally “laugh out loud” funny…just ask my husband, who I kept pestering to share “just one more…it’s too funny!” The facts also kept me reading…did you know that the wingspan of a Boeing 747 is longer than the first flight of the Wright Brothers? I didn’t.
The author is actually the host of a regular podcast by the same name (look for her here or on iTunes). I have not, as yet, listened to a podcast, but I’ve added her to my twitter feed and plan to subscribe on iTunes. She has a wide enough listenership (is that the right word?) who urged her to write a book. She even asks for your funniest stories at the end to share on future podcasts or include in future books.
So whether you’re a frequent flier or just dream of being one…I highly recommend Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase. (Link is to US Amazon, paperback is 9.99 and I read it on Kindle for half that).
