Q: What the heck is Project 42?
A: I conducted a rigorous analysis of the most life changing books (aka I asked my Facebook friends and read reviews on Goodreads) and chose 42 books to read. Some are books I read in high school and am excited to reread as an adult, some are classics I’ve just never read before, and others are complete unknowns I’ve selected based on the recommendation of people I love.
Q: So, what’s with the website?
A: I’ll use the website to share my writing as I move through the project. I don’t know exactly how this will go but I expect I’ll include journal entries, fictional responses to the books, creative non-fiction writing, and whatever else strikes me along the way.
Q: Okay, so why 42
A: Because 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything
Q: What, the what?
A: Put down the computer, go to the nearest library and don’t come back until you’ve read Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. No, I’m serious – do it.
