I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams To read more reviews and fun things go to my blog; Drugs Called Books!I've got the edition of the entire series of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but because I wanted to have a record of when I finished each book, especially because I probably won't be reading the entire thing at once (my jaw can't take it. Too much laughing ain't as healthy as people would like you to believe. Feeling like my jaw is going to drop from too much laughing can't possibly be a good thing.) I figured I'll rate them separately as well. And I might not like all of them the same, too.So... this has been a wonderful read. I've had the books for quite some time now. Actually, my best friend let me read the couple first pages of this book while at school, and I went and bought it myself the next week, because I just knew this was a series I had to have. Plus, she won't let me borrow it.*coughcough* anyway…By an unfortunate turn of events, I got to page 100 and had to stop. Why? Because some horribly stupid and insensitive people decided studying for my final exams was tiny bit more important than reading. I disagree, but my parents don't. So I put it aside, and it took a while to get back to it, partly because I got engaged with other readings I had to do and partly because I had to read the entire thing from the beginning again (At least that's what I always do when I stop reading a book for a long while), and despite loving this book it took a while to convince myself to complete this task. So, this week (8-12 of July, 2012) I went to London. I had to choose a book to take, and decided on Adam's. I had barely any time to read because we had a busy trip filled with sightseeing and touring London by foot (my poor feet!). And yet, somehow, I managed to finish the first book - just like that.It was one of the more amusing and entertaining books I've ever read, and one I kept laughing while reading - not to mention making my mother nuts with all sorts of quotes (My favorite being Zaphod's:“If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.”) and random moments of talking about things I've read in it.It was also very educating.For example: Did you know a towel is the most useful object to have? Or that the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is simply forty-two (haven't worked out the question, though)Or that Mice have been experimenting on humans for millions of years now?Oh, and Earth isn't a planet, not a real one anyway. Someone ordered us. Mice, if you want to be precise. And Time is an illusion.Always knew that one.Yeah. Very enlightening! I also loved the fact I could find the names of all the future books in the first one. It made me smile and feel all smart and everything. Wonder if that makes me stupid... nah.Anyhows, loved it to the extreme and will read the next one soon.Also, am I the only one who kind of wants Tricia and Arthur to be together??
