Booking Through: Recent funnies

btt2Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is nice and short: What’s the funniest book you’ve read recently?

The funniest book I’ve read recently … Well, a few come to mind:

Scoop by Evelyn Waugh and Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome are both very funny, although it’s been a few months since I read either of them. More recently, I read Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall, and while it’s not a humor book — it’s actually quite serious overall — at some points (more than one) I was laughing out loud. Review to come next week; it’s set to be released August 4, 2009.

What books have had you laughing recently?

  1. Three Men in a Boat has come up in several responses today, perhaps I should look it up… Here is my response.

  2. I need some humor in my life, so I picked up Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. There have not been, as yet, any laugh-out-loud bits, but the overall feel of the book is lighthearted and funny and, as such, is doing the trick.

    I can’t get through ANY Bill Bryson books without laughing out loud. It startles people in hospital waiting rooms…

  3. When more than one mention a book as funny, I will be checking it out!

  4. I loved Three Men in a Boat. One of the best books I have read!

  5. Evelyn Waugh has always been one of my favorites, although Scoop is one I haven’t read yet. His sense of humor is a little twisted – just like mine!

What do you think? I'd love to know.
