Zaphod Beeblebrox’s Summer Reading List

Rob Parmley
Assistant Manager, Central Library

Do you know Zaphod Beeblebrox, If so the following list of books might be for you.  Like Mr. Beeblebrox these books are somewhat eclectic but filled with their fair share of humor, pointless drivel, imagination, and possible a lesson or two.  So sit back and enjoy a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster and one of these fine titles, Mr. Beeblebrox would definitely  approve.
