So far, I've snagged three travel books for the trip:
- Wallpaper* City Guide Beijing 2012
- Lonely Planet Beijing (City Travel Guide)
- Rough Guide Mandarin Chinese Phrasebook
Of course, I've also downloaded the Mandarin version of the TripLingo App, which my friend James helped create. I've messed around with it a little so far and I'm really excited to fully put it to use when we land... or on my 20 hour plane ride (yikes).
And I'm a little intimidated by the thought of spending a whole day in the air. I've done a few trips across the Atlantic but always had a layover somewhere in Europe so I've never been on a plane longer than 8 hours at a time. Which means, I need to stock my iPad with a lot of books and movies for the roundtrip flights.
I would really appreciate some recommendations. Any books you've recently read and loved and would like to share would be wonderful. Right no, I plan on getting J.K. Rowling's new book but that's all. So please, please give me some recommendations.
