Every so often I threaten to read those Hitchhiker's sequels, yet I never get around to it.  Maybe over Christmas I'll finally do it.  It would be a great excuse to re-read the OG.

They're good.
I've read nearly every published word from Douglas Adams and I honestly wouldn't be the same person had I not.

Ditto.

Also, Restaurant is hardly some later 'sequel.' It's the second half of the story begun in Hitchhiker's Guide. They're basically one book. Only with the third book, Life the Universe and Everything, does the story, and writing style, go off in a new direction.

And it's a worthy direction, imo.

Just finished this one today, which is the third in the Broken Earth trilogy.  Really enjoyed the hell out of it.

My mother in law got me the Beastie Boys Book.

Of course it rules.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I just finished "The Lunatic Express".  Great book if you haven't read it. Currently reading "Of Human Bondage."

Yeah read that a couple months ago, great book. Got me interested in more books on screenwriting and TV production so I picked up The Wire All the Pieces Matter and been making my way through that. Not as well written as the Simpsons book, its more just a collection of interviews with the cast/writers.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.
