Too much ? anyone know of some good books that are funny?
It`s for me, I couldn't handle crime or sex.
Perhaps, something teenagy.
I cant afford to buy books but ....I do have access to a large
library.
Even books that are in a bookstore , I could read it in the
store.
Hope this isn't asking too much.
hugs to all!

anything by Dave Barry - whether his collections of short pieces - recycled from his syndicated newspaper columns - or his newer novels! he always makes me laugh!
enjoy!

I really enjoy all the paddington bear stories
written by Michael Bond.
it is laugh out loud funny and there
are over twenty books
by the original author so
there are many to choose from.
but I recommend starting at the
beginning with the first book and
reading in chronological order.
I am such a fan... I made a point of visiting
paddington station in London England when I was last there...
and I bought a paddington station bear stuffy.

great books... and funny too.
you will love paddington bear.

and since you are in kanada,
you might enjoy books written by
Stuart McLean.

he has a long running
clean-humour comedy show on
CBC radio called "vinyl cafe"
and it is always in great taste.
no crime or sex... very similar
to mark twain style humour.
the whole family enjoys his
storytelling, even the teens.
we buy his books.

worth checking out I recommend.

Robert Rankin has some outrageously funny stuff, too. they are hard to describe:

"His books are a mix of science fiction, fantasy, the occult, urban legends, running gags, metafiction, steampunk and outrageous characters."

they also are heavy on satire, conspiracy theories, far-fetched puns, and Monty-Python-style British humour. i have to read them in solitude because i laugh out loud.
