Towel Day 2021: Bibliotherapy Read-a-thon #2

“Towel Day is celebrated every year on 25th May as a tribute to the author Douglas Adams by his fans. On this day, fans openly carry a towel with them, as described in Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, to demonstrate their appreciation for the books and the author.”

Greetings from the Universe and welcome aboard the second read-a-thon to be hosted by Project Bibliotherapy this summer.

[Edit on 22nd May, 2021- Covid hit home the day after the launch of this read-a-thon. Such is life. Don't have the mental bandwidth to commit to posting daily at a stretch as planned, but will be adding to the DNA Goodreads every now and then. Till then, take care. Stay safe, stay sane - Nitin]

Receive one Froody internet goodie revolving around the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Douglas Adams for the next 42 days.

DON’T PANIC during this season of madness and keep your towels at hand, you hoopy froods!! Happy reading :) ~ Nitin

DAY ONE - 14TH APRIL, 2021

“We don't have to save the world. The world is big enough to look after itself.

What we have to be concerned about is whether or not the world we live in will be capable of sustaining us in it.” ~ Douglas Adams, 'Parrots, the Universe and Everything' (April 5th, 2001 || University of California - Santa Barbara)

This video still has less than a million views. HOW?

This was his last public appearance before he tragically passed away a month later.

One hour, twenty-seven minutes of pure wit and intelligence - available a click away for over 12 years, yet still only experienced by a handful of people. Let's change that?
