Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy e-book Deal

HHGTTGHey, great news if you're a fan of the late, great Douglas Adams! Palm Digital Media has now released all 4 of Adams' "trilogy" titles in Palm Reader e-book form: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything and So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

Even better, when you buy book 1: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you can buy book 2, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe for half price. Same deal applies if you buy book 3, Life, the Universe and Everything; you get book 4, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish for half price. The total for all four e-books comes to about $24 (less for Palm Digital Media subscribers).

If you've never read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and its sequels -- it's a story about an unsuspecting guy who lives in Islington, London, UK, Earth, who's snatched up by a spaceship along with his friend, Ford Prefect, who turns out to be an alien. Through the story Dent learns the truth about the universe and the earth, while meeting kooky characters and finding himself in tough situations all across the universe. Adams provides funny anecdotes throughout the narration of the story.

I recommend The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" of 4 books highly as a great read with many, many laughs. Douglas Adams was a very funny writer, who had a great way of making the future funny and not as picture perfect as other sci-fi writers have the tendency to do. Oddly enough though, the books actually followed the BBC radio series, which Adams did initially (available in audio CD format).

Have a great weekend all!
