How Many US Airport Bookshops Stock Titles by Noam Chomsky?

Any guesses?

Mine is ‘not many’.

~~

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 849th straight, was snapped on 25 April 2016 at Istanbul Ataturk  Airport, Istanbul, Turkey, where I spent nearly eight hours in transit today.

I’ve been through this airport quite a bit over the past few years and remain perplexed as to why they don’t even offer a way for non-residents to purchase wifi time. Outside of Starbucks and a couple restaurants that offer it gratis, you’re out of luck.

The upside? More time for reading a book.

      You’re probably closer than I am. I doubt that it’s a double digit figure.

    As we connect the CIA and NSA are hunting down the last copies to remove them 🙂

    Ah! Noam Chomsky! Brings back memories of my psychology degree when I studied language acquisition. Chomsky had lots to say about that, but I don’t think I would want to read any more of his books. I’ll be at London Gatwick airport in a couple of weeks, so I’ll look in the bookshop and let you know if I find any….

      Please do. My guess is that his work will figure about as prominently in Gatwick as it does at US airports.
