Funny Friday

Today my brain has already shut off in anticipation of the weekend, so all I'm capable of doing now is trolling the internet for funny stuff.  I haven't read a ton of humorous books, but here are two books which literally made me LOL.

Me Talk Pretty One Day Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.  A friend lent me this book, and it took me a while to realize that it was just a compilation of funny stories - vignettes of experiences in his life.  Once I understood that it wasn't a cohesive story, I fully enjoyed it...and one story in particular had me rolling.  It's sad to admit but it involves poop...because when is that not funny?  Definitely check it out if you want a laugh.

The other book that made me laugh hysterically is Hot Six (Stephanie Plum, #6) Hot Six by Janet Evanovich.  The Stephanie Plum books are all funny, but this one had me chortling with laughter.  Three words: Bob The Dog.  If you're a dog lover and if you've ever seen a dog get sick, especially a big one, well, you'd enjoy this book as much as I did.

Do you all have any books that really made you laugh? 

Also, if you need some funnies for today, check out this and this.  And prepare to laugh hysterically.

Happy Friday!


  1. I am actually reading Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's melancholy at times, but a lot of it is funny too. I know everyone in the universe has already read this, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. :)

    Thanks for the book recommendation, I'm always up for something funny!

    1. Well, everyone in the universe minus one. I haven't read it yet, either. You'll have to let me know what you think of it when you're done. Having lived through high school once, I'm not sure I want to revisit it, but if it's worth it, I'll give it a try.

  2. I need something to make me laugh. I can't remember the last time I read something that was just hysterical. I hope to find something soon:)

    1. Sometimes you need something that just makes you laugh. My parents are having a hard time in this economy and the Stephanie Plum books made them laugh in a time when they haven't had much to laugh about. Laughter really does soothe the soul.

      Hope you find something funny or at least something that lifts up your spirits.
