Flying offers the opportunity to disconnect from the internet — unless you pay for it — and turn your mind off from the constant barrage of phone notifications.

For this list we selected an array of lengths, from a 64-page book that’s perfect for your hour-long flight, to a 320-page book that would fit the bill if you fly coast-to-coast.
Below we’ve listed them in order of length, from shortest to longest.
