#FriYayIntro 👋🏼 Sorry, I‘m late but I had such mentally-asking week, I was hors de combat yesterday.

1️⃣ The last I really remember was “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”🌌

2️⃣ I was born to be a strong person and loved the story. (Okay …)

3️⃣ If any apart from Snooker, summer.

4️⃣ More acknowledgement than compliments – to those who made my week better without knowing how 🤯 it was. @ljuliel @thebookbutterfly1 @BaBaBaBillyAndTheBooks

ljuliel Thank you for the acknowledgement 🙂. It‘s been great talking to you, also. 1d

Why have normal nightstands when you can have bookshelf nightstands!?

I'm not sure which books I'm putting on my side yet, but my husband's side has his entire Douglas Adams collection.

Crazeedi That is perfect!!! Want!! But I'd need a step ladder to reach!😉 3w
Literary_Siren I need these! 3w

GondorGirl @Literary_Siren It's a nightstand with a bookcase in top. Both from IKEA. We just shortened the bookcase enough to fit and screwed them together. We're going to add crown molding around the entire room, and it should make the bookcases look like built-ins. 3w

TheAromaofBooks One of the reasons I joined Litsy was because of the fact that they start everyone at 42 instead of 0. My kind of people 😆 3w

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! 👏🏽 8mo
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. 8mo
