Hello :) I'm so impressed when people say they buy books and then read them. It shouldn't be shocking, but I'm more of a hoarder, which is why my shelves of books to be read is enormous and hugely out of control. I don't think there's any shame in discovering John Green or his books recently. We've all been there at one time or another!
And more classics is always a very worthwhile goal, good luck to you! :)
How fantastic that you recieved Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for Christmas. I read the first part a few years back and loved it, I've really been meaning to read the others in the series. Thanks so much for commenting on my blog post and happy reading!
