42 Books to Love for Towel Day 2015

Towel Day has been an annual tradition celebrated on May 25th to honor the work and remember the life of author Douglas Adams. Best known for probably the best science fiction book ever written, “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,” Mr. Adams had a career that would endear him to the soul of the even the most casual reader and science fiction connoisseur. His work was imbued with a humor that was rare and an idea that life is to precious to waste. Hold your towel close today and if you’re looking for a really wonderful read, be sure to check out my list of recommendations below. Thank you, as always, to Rangewoman Inc for her tireless work in helping me format this post and be sure to check out her page for special events and interviews to celebrate the day.
