The 12 Days of Bookmas Countdown - #12

My goal this year was to average out at reading one book each month to supplement my many hours of television and movie watching. When I was younger, I tended to read the works of Steinbeck and Hemingway along with other classics of American Literature. But this year I delved pretty deep into the Fantasy genre. I guess I am no longer afraid of getting beat up for reading books with dragons on the cover. Anyways, before the year is up I will present the 12 I read in a ranked order with a few quick thoughts on each. Comments are always welcome.


The Restaurant at the End of the Universe - I had always been curious what the big deal was about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Last year I read that book, and this is the sequel. While the first book was ok, this one seemed to drag. This one had a ship in a pocket, an alternate universe and a time trip to the origins of man on earth. If nothing else, these books sure are "zany." I don't know, maybe I just don't "get it," but even with a cliffhanger ending, I may not be continuing to part 3 Life, the Universe, and Everything.
