Throwback Thursday


Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Jenny at Take Me Away who says, "It is the time each week to recognize those older books… an older book you’ve always wanted to read, or one that you have read and love; maybe one from your childhood; or review an older book -- how about even a classic!"

So, I'm pitching in this week with my selection: I've picked up books recently that have either been written by authors who have been compared to Douglas Adams of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fame or have quoted/made reference to the book(s). I'm excited to add that I received an email yesterday advising me of its imminent shipment! Considering that I've read so many of Kurt Vonnegut and Tom Robbins over the years and have recently added Christopher Moore and Victors Gischler to my repertoire, it's amazing I haven't picked this one up sooner. Now, I just have to locate some Thomas Pynchon books.
Leave me a comment below with your throwback pick and of course, head over to Take Me Away to give props to the host.

I haven't read Douglas Adams either though it's one of those "classics" i feel like I should.

I haven't read any of those either! I have a bunch of Christopher Moore books (hubby reads them) and I've been meaning to try reading one of those.

Thanks everyone for coming by!

Sumana - I've got a few ARC's to get out of the way, but hopefully before the end of the year I can get into it...it's a trilogy in 5 books, lol.

Michelle - I never realized it was considered a classic, but I'm giddy :-)

Jenny - If your hubby has Lamb, READ IT! I reviewed it on my trial/first blog here: Much a'blog about nothing
