  1. I love the Hitchhiker’s Guide, I read all 4 books in the series many years ago plus his Dirk Gently books. Happy New Year and wishing you lots of good books in 2021.

  2. The Hitchhiker’s Guide is such a great series. It’s one of my husband’s favorite series. I am glad you enjoyed Emerald Blaze! It’s been ages since I last read anything by Ilona Andrews. I love their books and need to get back to them. I hope you enjoy your current books! Have a great week, Bev. Happy New Year.
