I just read And Another Thing, volume 6 of the Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy by Eoin Colfer, apparently under license by Adams's heirs. I'm tempted to say the best thing about it was the name of the Vogon ship, the Business End, out-Iain-M-Banksing Iain M. Banks himself.

I also read Strength in What Remains, by Tracy Kidder, The Wind-up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, Adventures of a Cat-whiskered Girl by Daniel Pinkwater (who I thought was dead and I'm overjoyed to find ain't), Complications: a surgeon's notes on an imperfect science by Atul Gawande, and Gunnerkrigg Court volumes 1 and 2 by Tom Siddell. All recommended.
