What a ride! Made me laugh out loud throughout. Never thought I would relate to the character of a robot more than that of humans. What a ride!

The original (and best) Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent, from the TV series of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the only book (to date) that I have ever read twice.

The Hitchhiker‘s Guide To The Galaxy is perfect if you‘re in need of a laugh, as I was when I read it. I‘m not sure I‘d read it again, I didn‘t love it that much, but I‘m glad I did. It made me think a lot about how sci-fi is often maligned, and how varied the genre can actually be, unbeknownst to the readers that look down their noses at it.

#HappyHour by the Housemartins. I remember this song playing during Freshers‘ Week, when I started a Bath Uni. Hugely popular song, the nightclub DJ was asked to play it again and again, until he refused to do so until the students calmed down😂. And the full HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy, a trilogy in 4 parts, was first published in that same year.

Talk about another trip down memory lane. I remember really enjoying this when I 1st read it back in high school. I listened to the audio this time (read by Stephen Fry 👍) and while I still enjoyed it immensely I would have to say I definitely have a greater appreciation for & understanding of it now as an adult.

Book #36: Continuing on my "I'm going to read some "funner" books on this list" trend, I dove into my first outright humorous book. Prior to this I was not much accustomed to "British humor", having not watched much of British comedy shows or movies before. But afterwards I became a convert. I thought this book was absolutely hilarious, and...

Finished HHGTTG audiobook last night. One of my faves, but 1st time on audio. But while I normally like Stephen Fry, I wasn‘t crazy about his narration, mainly because I will always hear Marvin‘s voice as Alan Rickman & Zaphod as Sam Rockwell. 💜 This was audiobook 5/6 for the #BookFitnessChallenge

I started the Bear & the Nightingale audiobook this morning, read by Kathleen Gati, who so far is a fabulous narrator.

bewareofwords That‘s fantastic! I love HHGTTG to death haha. You‘re doing great! 👏🏽 6mo
mabell I had the same experience! I listened to Hitchhikers after I loved the movie, and even though the narration was great, I missed their voices. 6mo

A sci-fi classic, this book has the right balance of adventure and tongue in cheek dry humor to keep you entertained for the duration of the book. A great go-to when life is throwing a lot at you all at once and you're feeling overwhelmed.
