It is cold and yucky outside, the post holiday financial pinch is on, and of most anything that can go wrong, IS going wrong. So I figured that a thread about books that make us laugh would be a GREAT thing! What books or authors make you laugh? Which ones make you stand in the middle of the store and just laugh so loud people look at you funny or ask what you are reading? Shelley Laurenston is a favorite author for just this reason. Her books are about shape shifters but they are goofy and hilarious. My favorite 2 titles are "Beast Behaving Badly" and "Wolf With Benefits", but any of her titles just makes me smile. Susan Elizabeth Phillips also makes me laugh. Her characters are outrageous and so are the situations- Especially her earlier books. "It Had To Be You" is probably my favorite. For fast and easy reading, Kerry Miller's "Passive Aggressive Notes" is a riot! My entire family finds "F: in exams" to be hilarious, I guess partly because we have so many teachers! Of course Dave Barry is always funny, but I think the best books (even funnier on audiobook, by the way) are "Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs" and "Dave Barry's Guide to Life". What books make you laugh?
