    Hello there,
    In another thread the idea was mentioned for a bunch of us to read a book at the same time. So what about this book? Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams...
    Let me know if you think it's a good choice, or if you've already read it (I hope not!). And give suggestions if you have another idea you think would be better.

    ps: I've always wanted to use this ninja face :bandit: ...awesome

    There is a long tradition of Great Detectives, and Dirk Gently does not belong to it. But his search for a missing cat uncovers a ghost, a time traveler, AND the devastating secret of humankind! Detective Gently's bill for saving the human race from extinction: NO CHARGE.
    Looks good to me, nice choice. I think the "Ask a Ninja" Ninja would be proud.

    Yes, raspberryh, ninjas do exist. (ok, REALLY bad ripoff of the classic Virginia / Santa Clause line, so sue me)

    I remember reading that this was a really funny one... I will, however, have to get a hold of it. Who else wants to join the crazy nerds for reading? :-P

    So it's decided then? If so, I'll pick it up tonight on my usual pre-haircut tradition.

    by Douglas Adams


    Hmmm..... I assume this has nothing to do with web design? :-)

    Guess what I DIDN'T find today at the bookstore?
    Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

    What did I find (other than some mags)?
    The Infinite Book: A Short Guide to the Boundless, Timeless, and Endless

    300+ pages isn't a short guide IMHO, but it looks good.
