Y'all?

What's a really funny, fun, will make me smile and laugh kind of book you've read lately that I can read?

I've been reading some great books lately, but they're all a bit apocalyptic and somewhat harrowing and I think maybe I need one that'll just be a laughingly good, easy read.

Have you read the Shopaholic series? They are really funny books and a new one just came out too :)

Book I'm reading at he moment that makes me laugh is "Electronics for earthlings" - probably not your kind of thing tho. Maybe the original Winnie The Pooh? :)

I'm reading
"It's called a Break-up because it's broken"
It has its funny moments. Probably not something you're interested in. It's way better than 99% of the other "breakup books" out there though. Lots of horror stories.

There's always lolcats!?

I just looked at around 100 of my books and realised that none of them are funny. Hmmm, something to think about....
Well if you want an instant smile, I would go for The Complete Far Side. I was never a cartoon girl, but these would make anyone laugh and they're a perfect antedote to all the serious stuff we take in on a daily basis.

Far Side is awesome Nataharri! And you've reminded me, I have a few comic collections I can re-read! :)

Any book by Sue Townsend! Especially any from the Adrian Mole series. Hilarious, laugh-out-loud British humour.

I just read "Syrup" by Maxx Barry. It's a satire of marketing and very fast paced with many laugh out loud moments. Also? Hi! I'm new here...just Googling around :-)

It won't make you laugh, but I loved The Thirteenth Tale. So Amazing.

If you can handle Chelsea Handler, her books are a good, quick read. Ya just never know what'll come out of her mouth...

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (a 4 book trilogy) - Douglas Adams

...yes that's the kind of humour it is. It's an older book series but funny but is a special kind of humour that falls heavily into the 'wilful suspension of disbelief' category. Some people love it and some don't

Nick Hornby's 'About a Boy' is really funny.
But you should totally try to read Steve Toltz'z 'A Fraction of the whole' - so awesome. Funny, original, cynical (but cynical in an insightful way, you know, not something that bogs you down) Who knew cynicism could be so hilarious?!
