I work for a software company, and the head tech had a dialogue going with one of our users regarding this book. I remarked to her that I had never read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Well the other day I received this, The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the entire collection), in the mail at work as a gift from our head tech.
How I have survived six years in a tech office without reading at least the first book in this series, I have no idea. However I will be starting on this collection sometime this year, and begin my journey through the galaxy! If I disappear for awhile, you know where I'll be!
