    Salmon of Doubt is a phenomanal douglas collection. Made me cry as well as laugh as, since he died of a heart attack at the tender age of 50 out of the blue, this fourth book of the hitchhiker trilogy never was finished, and is more a collection of random things from his hard drive (including my FAVORITE- a letter sent to a non-responsive Disney regarding the movie making).

    I have An Unquiet Mind on my wish list too! Great, unquiet minds think alike, hey. I also have “A Brilliant Madness”- cowritten by Patty Duke.

    I hope nobody tags me with this thing…I can’t remember the last book I read. I admire readers…like you gnatty. See you later.

    I’ll trade you Life, The Universe and Everything (hardback) for When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops:)
