DONT PANIC🐬 temporary abandoned my other book to start this series , in dire need for some comedy ✨🌌
Week 11: A book set in space
Read: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Love this movie and they followed the book so well.
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...
Who doesn‘t love this book. Such a FUN read! If you haven‘t read it, do yourself a favor and make it happen. Even my fiction-hating husband loved it! 🎵 So long, thanks for all the fish. 🎵
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.
Yesterday was towel day! Take this fun quiz to see which character you are. I‘m Trillian. https://bookriot.com/2019/05/25/quiz-which-hitchhikers-guide-character-are-you/
Thanks @Joriebooks thanks for the link to this fun quiz. Of course I‘m Arthur Dent 😂. Now, where‘s my towel ! 🐟💫🚀🛰
In honor of Towel Day yesterday(5/25), here is a quiz from Bookriot. I got Trillion. Who will you get?
Happy Towel Day! I was inspired to draw this after seeing @wanderinglynn ‘s post, but I‘ve been a big fan of Hitchhiker‘s Guide since I was twelve and I knew I had to commemorate this day somehow! Note the towel at Ford‘s back as he drags Arthur off to some crazy new adventure! #towelday #hitchhikersguide #hitchhikersguidetothegalaxy #douglasadams
“A towel it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.”
I‘ve got my towel. Now if I just had a copy of the guide, a Babel fish, and a Sub-Etha Sens-O-Matic, I‘d be ready to go! #hhgttg #towelday
2. I rejoined my local running club. I‘d forgotten how welcoming they were.
3. Italian, because pasta!
4. 2, one on each side of the family.
5. Hi to new followers @krf1101 @Sic_Corneille @Wolverine551
1. One of the funniest books I‘ve ever read. #TeamMarvin🤖
3. I can‘t answer this. I have a lot of stomach issues so there‘s not one style of food that I could live on really. I do love Chinese & Thai but I also love Italian. And a good steak🥩.
4. Yep. 23 I think.🤔
5. @Robothugs @Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm 💖💖💖
The President in particular is very much a figurehead — he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it...
1. Yes, I‘m good with any genre except horror.
2. Douglas Adams
3. No, I lean toward eclectic, so I‘m good with weird & creative.
4. BTVS, all things Gaiman (that‘s a fandom, right?), Sherlock
5. No triggers, but I have a hard time reading horror.
6. Sweet (dark chocolate)
7. As long as its not so much to obscure the text
10. Enamel pins, magnets, miniature books, foreign coins
Reread, because book group is tonight. I‘ve read it approximately 42 times before (see what I did there?). It‘s fine, utterly ridiculous but fun. My camera doesn‘t appear to be working, so here‘s a pic of my dogs instead.
Much better read during lunch than pregnancy and lactation drug labeling regulations. 🤣🤣
Which Great American Read Are You? This was my result! 😁
@wanderinglynn tagged me so thanks!I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do if I'm tagged so just doing the tag I guess? 😅
1. I like to believe I relate to Liesel Meminger
2.Nesta from the ACOTAR series. I did not like her character one bit
3. Theatre Corner
4.Tagging everyone who was nice enough to welcome me and show me around

4. 👋🏻 to some of my new followers: @christine_reads88 @nafisa_18 @Michaelbmontes @baes @girlwiththeglasses
I have finally read this classic of science fiction! It felt like I already knew most of the story and jokes going in because it‘s so saturated in pop culture, but this was still a fun read and I‘d like to continue on with the series.
I couldn‘t fully get focused on this and enjoy it. It was a bit much for me. But, I do have a lot of respect for the creativity and imagination to make this story happen.
I remember when Radiohead released their breakthrough single #Creep I liked it at the time, but it was their following album The Bends that really displayed their originality & turned me into a lifelong fan. Sprinkled throughout their discography are literary references, such as the following lyric from In Rainbows, "Mephistopheles is just beneath/ And he's reaching up to grab me." My personal favorite is their song Paranoid Android, ref. Marvin.
I'm on the third book of this series right now and I was planning on just reviewing the entire thing as a whole but I'm starting to forget the beginning so I'm just going to review as I go. This book was incredibly entertaining. Douglas Adams has this wry almost dry ironic humor that really just pushes all the right buttons while still being complex and mad scientist intelligent. It makes you look at the world (and the Universe) differently.
My fortune cookie, not really a fortune.....but I feel like I need a towel now.
1. I've considered it, but have never done it. My TBR, though! 😲
2. A fall in the 5th grade. There was mud. Lots of mud. Omg.
4. Ohio in May, Colorado and Utah in July, considering Oregon in Setember/October.
I finished it. I can cross it off my reading bucket list poster. Other than that, not much I would recommend.
For some, this might be a very funny book. To me, it was just a random thought process that went nowhere through the vast unknown reaches of space and back again. Escapism? Fantasy? Who knows?
Which might just be the point...
