Some people have this tiny misconception that says, ‘you’re not supposed to laugh at books.’ Films? Sure. Comedians? Without a doubt. The face a friend or relative make before sneezing? Definitely. But what about when it comes to books? They consider books to be sacred and important matters. Do you share that viewpoint? That’s not a good opinion, is it?
If that describes you, the problem is straightforward: you’re not reading the correct books. Because a truly funny book will make you laugh loudly and proudly whether you want to or not.
Enjoy some of the best rib-ticklers ever written, ranging from laugh-out-loud novels to cutting satires to memoirs by certified Very Funny Authors.

In this story, a down-and-out vacuum cleaner salesman devises a great solution to workplace sexual harassment: employ women to poke their bottom half through a hole in a bathroom wall so the guys in the office can have anonymous sex with them! They will then stop harassing anyone once they are pleased. DeWitt is a genius, and she pulls it off with hilarity—a it’s parody of business politics, American inventiveness, and the masculine mentality, as well as a silly, infantile adventure.
Just prepare to laugh until your tummy hurts.
Born a Crime tells the story of a naughty young child (Trevor Noah) who grows into a restless young man as he fights to find himself in a world where he was never meant to exist. It’s also the story of that young man’s connection with his daring, rebellious, and devoutly religious mother—his teammate, a woman desperate to keep her son out of the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would eventually endanger her own life.
The stories in this collection are amusing, dramatic, and genuinely moving at times. Trevor depicts his unusual world with an incisive wit and unabashed honesty, whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during bad times, getting flung from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or simply attempting to survive the life-and-death perils of dating in high school. His stories intertwine to make a compelling and searingly funny image of a youngster navigating a shattered world in a perilous time, armed only with a sharp sense of humor and a mother’s unorthodox, unconditional love.
This is an autobiography that you will like and recommend to your friends and family. It would make you laugh while also making you understand things you had never understood before.
Ayoola, Korede’s sister, is many things: the favored child, the most beautiful, and probably psychopathic. And now, for the third time in a row, Ayoola’s boyfriend is dead, stabbed through the heart with Ayoola’s knife.
Korede’s pragmatism is the sisters’ savior. She knows how to clean blood (bleach, bleach, and more bleach), how to relocate a body (wrap it in sheets like a mummy), and how to discourage Ayoola from posting photographs on Instagram when she should be mourning her “lost” partner. She doesn’t get any credit.
Korede has been in love with a caring, gorgeous doctor at the hospital where she works for a long time. She fantasizes about the day when he will understand she is exactly what he requires. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola’s phone number, she is forced to confront what her sister has become and how far she is ready to go to protect her.
If you enjoy dark humor, this is the book for you.
Simply said, this book will make you laugh. In this collection of essays, one of our time’s funniest writers discusses how her difficult childhood led to a problem with making “adult” budgets, a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father’s ashes, how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now suburban moms, and more.
Arthur Dent is possibly the most commonplace man on the planet, comfortable with the regularity of his life. Until horrible poetry-loving, bureaucratic aliens destroy Earth to build a galactic bypass, and Arthur nearly escapes with a researcher for the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – a completely astonishing guide for space travelers. Arthur Dent, dressed in a bathrobe and with a towel, not only survives the devastation of his home planet, but he may be closer than he believes to learning the solution to life, the universe, and everything.
Despite what Inspirational Instagram Infographics have promised her, Irby is 40 and growing increasingly uneasy in her own skin. She quit her job as a veterinary clinic receptionist, published successful books, and was friendzoned by Hollywood. She left Chicago and moved into a house with a garden in need of repairs and know-how in a Blue town in the heart of a Red state with her wife, where she now hosts book groups and makes mason jar salads. This is a Hallmark Channel fantasy’s bourgeois existence. She has horrible dates with new pals, spends weeks in Los Angeles meeting with “tv executives slash amateur astrologers” while being a “cheese fry-eating slightly wet Midwest person” with “neck stiffness and no cartilage in [her] knees,” and yet keeps past due bills under her pillow.

But when Mei re-connects with her estranged brother, Xing, for dating the wrong woman, she begins to wonder if all the secrets are truly worth it. Can she find a way to be herself, whatever she is, before her web of lies comes tumbling down?
