JUST BECAUSE I SUPPOSE IT'S DOUGLAS ADAMS DAY HERE ON OXBLOG: 'I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.' (From M. J. Simpson, Hitchhiker: A Biography of Douglas Adams)

People who appreciate the Hitchhiker's Guide books should consider reading "Last Chance to See." Both very funny and quite powerful, it's a non-fiction account of Adams and a zoologist friend touring the world in search of endangered species. Especially funny is the chapter on Komodo Dragons, entitled: "Here be Chickens."
Thanks Milan! Does that mean you're lending?
