No other Throwback Read will be as appropriately matched to this GIF the one I chose for today. I honestly can't believe it didn't make the list sooner. Douglas Adams is one of favorite human people out there! From the books he wrote to the episodes of Doctor Who that will forever hold a special place in my heart. I own the HUGE book that holds all of the Hitchhiker books inside. I've read most of Dirk Gently Series. Listened to all of his radio plays. I'm a fan! So it only makes sense that the very first book I read by Douglas Adams should grace my Throwback Reads meme. Honestly it should have made the list sooner.

What other old school sci-fi books does everyone love? Anything I should add to my TBR?
