On a number of ocassions, The Deal Mommy has written about a series of books called the Go Nomad Plane Readers. I finally took a look at the GoNomad website, and found the Plane Readers – ebooks that are supposed to be good to read at the airport or on the plane on ones way to a destination. These books are supposed to contain stories and tidbits of information to get you excited for your upcoming trip. Thus:
When you’re thinking of traveling some place, do your research, get excited and get the information and ideas you need to make your plans. GoNOMAD is now publishing a new line of ebooks called Plane Readers, which are perfect for reading in the airport, on the plane, and on the way to your travel destinations, on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
We compile more than 30 articles and hundreds of photographs in each 300-page book, and we also include every tourism office all over the world to help you find more information to plan your trip. The articles are written by travelers like you–no promotional fluff, no boilerplate same-old, same-old, instead, unique feature stories about adventures all over the world. We find the best foods, the most interesting local people, and the places you just have to see and have incorporated them into each of these new ebooks.
Yes, these books all looked quite interesting. A Spain Plane Reader, an Italy Plane Reader, a Cuba Plane Reader, an England Plane Reader, a Central America Plane Reader, and quite a few others in the works …..
And then I looked closer at the books. And then I saw it. Another Plane Reader title, this one a little different than the others: Naked Travel – Things to Do Without Clothes! (edited by Max Hartshome).
Well that sounds like some rather fascinating plane reading, doesn’t it? Amazon, which sells the Kindle version of this book, writes:
Naked Travel – Things To Do Without Clothes is a GoNOMAD Plane Reader ebook for travelers who truly want to travel light. Have you ever wanted to check out a nude beach, or even spend a weekend at a clothing optional inn or a nudist resort? GoNOMAD’s writers have done it all, and in this new ebook we share many details and tips on getting out of your clothes and enjoying life around the world in your birthday suit. It’s not about sex, it’s about freedom, and today’s naturists are law abiding citizens just out to have fun.We begin with an essay profiling a nudist resort in the California desert called DeAnza Springs. We meet many men and women there who have chosen a nudist lifestyle and look forward to each weekend when they come out to the desert and strip off their clothes and their cares, and hang out with fellow nudists. We go hiking in the nude in Washington ‘s Cascade Mountains, and find a cute country inn nestled in Vermont’s Green Mountains where nobody has to wear a stitch of clothing. At night they dance naked in front of a roaring fire.
The chapters also include a visit to Sandy Hook, New Jersey’s famous nude beach near New York City, and Haulover Beach, which some consider the country’s finest nude beach, located near Miami Florida. The top ten nude beaches in the world are reviewed, along with updated detailed guides to the United State’s best nude beaches.
Ok, I’ve spent numerous summers on the clothing-optional beaches of Mykonos, Greece, and I’ve been to many other such beaches in Europe, but I never knew Sandy Hook, New Jersey, had a nude beach. Maybe that’s where the Naked Man at the Sheraton Meadowlands Hotel goes? Neh, I doubt it. I once ran a marathon that began in Sandy Hook — the Jersey Shore Marathon, 2001 — and I guess I was running fast in those days because I never noticed nude people on the beach.
I have to admit, I have not yet read the book. It might be entertaining to read it on a plane – maybe I wouldn’t notice the turbulence? The Kindle edition is only $2.99 – sounds like a bargain to me.

And, if you are interested in running a nude race, here’s an article from Runners World entitled No Clothes, No Chafing, No Problem!
