Since I own it, I really should re-read and post a review here.
It was hysterical!
but he should have!
Speaking of audiobooks, there are two others that made me laugh all the way to work and back for many hours.
The first of these was
Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir
by Jenny Lawson
I listened to the audiobook four times
before returning it to the library!
It is so damn funny!
(Note: if bad words offend you, especially the "F" word,
this is not the book for you! Otherwise, listen to it!)
One of the funniest stories has to do with the cover image!
This woman is hysterical and likable, all at the same time!
I truly respect her overcoming all the challenges life has presented to her.
Then I listened to Yes Please by Amy Poehler!
While this one definitely made me laugh out loud,
I found it to be a bit more poignant and serious in a way.
Amy Poehler is someone I would like to know
well enough to call my friend!
I have much respect for her and all she has
done for her comedic colleagues.
She seems like a down-to-earth real person.
Books from two other series that
always make me laugh:
Alexander McCall Smith's
No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
and the Isabel Dalhousie series
The Sunday Philosophy Club.
The humor in the latter series tends to be a bit more subtle, dryer, while the humor in the
Ladies' Detective Agency seems more overt.
I also laugh at the Corduroy Mansions books, though the humor in these seem to be a bit dryer than the above two series.
I now own a copy of 44 Scotland Street
and want to try this series, too!
I do love this man's writing!
I feel as if I am in Botswana or Edinburgh
while reading the first two series!
He can create "place" so very well!
Another series that made our Borders Book Club all laugh was
Carolyn Brown's Cadillac, Texas trilogy:
The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeño Society Jubilee,
The Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off, and
The Yellow Rose Beauty Shop.
Don't be fooled by these titles. There are some serious issues covered in these books,
but also tons of humor and hilarity!
Carolyn graciously granted us an interview, too! She is a Tex-Okie hoot!
I cannot wait to see what others recommend!
Check them out here!

And happy reading and laughing!
