Good books/movies for a Plane ride?

Heading out to Cali tomorrow. Have Amazon Prime.

Any suggestions for good books/movies I can dump on the Kindle for the flight?

Long Way Round. Also do a search for motorcycle travel. I can usually find some interesting books to sample on Kindle.

I'm flying tomorrow too so I'm interested to see what others say.

Actually have those in real book form and DVD. Just re-read Long Way Round recently.

Should be fun to see the suggestions...
