Lots of different books, lots of different genres. For a rather precocious child who read everything he saw who wasn't yet 9 this was heaven! Then I saw it - a paperback with a blue cover and different coloured letters making up the curious looking title - THE HITCH HIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.
I did what I always do before reading any book, I read the blurb. It sounded amazing. And it was cheap! I could afford to buy it right there. So I gave the people my money and took my new book away with me.
Little did I know it was about to change my entire life. 1979 was about to get a whole lot more interesting.
