Long flights are perfect for those types of books because you have very little distractions and all the time in the world to read a book of your choosing. Skip the quick romance novels or cheap thrillers for a book that will improve your life. You can choose to read them through the old fashioned paperback medium or on a convenient e-reader. You'll be allowed to use the e-reader in flight but won't be able to access it when the plane is taking off and when it's landing. Handy Earphones Image Source: Thinkstock Remember to bring along your earphones so you don't need to borrow one from the airline to use with your personal TV or radio on the plane. You'll save money by bringing your own because sometimes you even have to pay to rent the headphones. This cute Paul Frank earbud ($19) is a cute yet helpful item. Media Players Image Source: Thinkstock Bring on gadgets that will be able to play all sorts of media such as an iPod, tablet, or laptop. You can listen to books, lectures, watch movies or TVs on the players. Another good idea is to use it to fill your ears with white noise. There are plenty of smartphone apps for White Noise, or you can purchase an album featuring white noise track that'll help you relax and sleep.
