30 days of me meme - day 4 (delayed)

Delayed again. In fairness, the last couple of days have been...interesting I think is the correct word...

Already happened:
Day 01 → Your favorite song

Day 02 → Your favorite movie

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

Day 04 → Your favorite book
Less easy. I used to be a really voracious reader, but now I hardly read at all. In fairness, I used to do most of my reading whilst travelling to work. When I was commuting to London, I could get a good 30/40 pages done in the morning and the same in the evening. When I was getting the bus in to Broomfield, this changed to about 10 pages each way. Nowadays, as I'm driving to work, I don't manage any reading. I'd like to, but it tends to be frowned upon for drivers to be distracted from the actual business of driving. *ahem*

And as it is, I tend to focus on the book I'm reading at the moment and not really bother about books I've read in the past.

However, I think there are two that have really stood out. Firstly, Pete Grieg's Red Moon Rising, the story of the 24-7 Prayer movement, which I found to be really inspirational. Grieg's The Vision and the Vow was also really rather amazing.

The other book I'd go for would be one of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. In fact, I'll cheat and go for the first four, because IMO they're all equally great in their own ways (yes, even So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish) and I'd find it hard to choose between them.
