Hitchhiker's Guide

Today was a long day. I had to wake up way too early, go to my aunt's house to celebrate her 50th birthday, give gifts to my grandfather, go to Nacogdoches to pick up a few things for my car, vacuum my car's floor, handwash my car, and do loads of laundry. Even though I enjoyed doing a large amount of that stuff, today still seemed to crawl by slowly. Later tonight I'm going to try to continue typing up information concerning a project I'm working on with a few floormates.

Because none of the above stuff is really that interesting, I will instead talk about an incredible series of books I have read. Considering some of the people that I know read this blog, I am sure a review is totally unnecessary. However, you are getting it anyway. The series started with a little book called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Absolutely incredible. I enjoyed all five books in the series and would highly recommend this series to anyone who asks me about it. For any of you who have not been fortunate enough to read this series, you should know that it is a science fiction series. I have generally not been a fan of science fiction novels so you should give the books a shot even if you don't like sci fi. The books are very funny and have several good quotations. My favorite is given by Mr. Ford Prefect in the third book of the series, Life, the Universe, and Everything:

"My doctor says that I have a malformed public duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fiber," he muttered to himself, "and that I am therefore excused from saving Universes."

Anyway, if you haven't read the books and think that you might, I highly suggest reading them. You won't be disappointed.
