Towel Day

"A towel... is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have."
Make sure to have your towel handy tomorrow, May 25th! Towel Day is the annual celebration of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Trilogy, and this year is perfectly timed to coincide with the start of Adult Summer Reading. Our 2011 theme, Novel Destinations, celebrates the ability of books to transport readers to different times and places. In honor of Towel Day and Novel Destinations, we've compiled a list of Science Fiction titles new and old, classic and acclaimed, guaranteed to show you a whole new world.

Check out some Science Fiction today: Reading Suggestions for Towel Day

As a further celebration, we encourage you to post your very own Vogon Poetry in the comments. The Vogons, if you don't recall, are renowned as the worst poets in the galaxy.
