GIVEAWAY: Win the Entire Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

Well folks, the negotiations are over, the plotting and scheming is complete, and my dearly beloved and I finally have our books on the bookshelves. Combining two people's fairly extensive libraries is no easy task and some duplicates as well. From that, friends, you can benefit, as I'm offering to one lucky winner a very lovingly maintained omnibus edition of The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Mr. Adams is an all time favorite author of mine, and we're keeping dearly beloved's copy of this omnibus because it's hardcover. D'oh! My loss is your gain, though, as all you have to do to enter is fill out the form! If you're not familiar with these books, check out the descriptions from goodreads:
At last in paperback in one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams’s beloved Hitchiker series.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Facing annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.

Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky– so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription conspires to thrust him back to reality. So to speak.

Mostly Harmless
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?
