These books individually and as the complete hitchikers guide are available all over, for less.
I've got them (legit) free on my Nook from B&N

It does seem fitting to have these books on an electronic device. I bet Adams would love it.

I'm curious, what is Neil's name doing up there? Did he write the foreward?

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."

"Why, what did she tell you?"

"I don't know, I didn't listen."

What I always think of every presidential election:

The major problem — one of the major problems, for there are several — one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.

@wakingmind: Yes, Neil Gaiman wrote the foreward.

Time is an illusion... lunchtime, doubly so.

I've got the original BBC radio serials on vinyl :) but still in for one.

Douglas Adams = Best Fiction Author EVER!! or at least the funniest

Does it come with a towel?

Also - this is a must have for any reader. One of the best series ever written.

What is young zaphod about? I already own all of these books individually and am strapped so I can't afford to buy this. Is there any place I could possibly read just the bonus?

OK, Roberto, I'll bite. How did you get them for free (legit) from B&N?

vote-for2vote-against

Yeah, $6 is my ceiling on ebooks.

For those who prefer Google's eBook store (for Android phones or tablets), here is the same eBook at the same price:

What Gaiman wrote is the foreword. There is no such word as "foreward".

Very tempting. Have all the books, autographed (got to meet Douglas when he visited my TV station, very nice guy)
Would be nice to have on my Nook Color for reading under the stars while camping, especially if any Vogon constructor ships come to take me away. (please please please)
I also have "Don't Panic" as my wall paper for the Nook. Unfortunately the letters aren't friendly but are rather large, will have to work on that...
