I thought it was about time that I read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (trilogy of five) as I love the film and the BBC series, and have only heard good things about the actual books. Train journeys are useful for making good reading progress; I am about halfway through number three now, the whole of which is pretty trippy. I am particularly intrigued to learn that "there is an art, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." Brilliant.
