Books that make you laugh out loudThere's a new issue of the Wet Noodle Posse e-zine up for your reading pleasure, and one of the things we cover this month is our favorite nonfiction books in the Top Faves listing. My contributions to that list were a couple of hilarious travel books by Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country (about his travels in Australia) and A Walk in the Woods (about his trek along the Appalachian Trail). Both of these books, along with his Notes from a Small Island and I'm a Stranger Here Myself, made me laugh out loud. I'm talking snorting out the nose here.
It takes a lot for an author to be able to make me laugh out loud while reading, but Bryson always manages to. As does Janet Evanovich in her Stephanie Plum series. Off the top of my head, I can't think of another author who regularly makes me laugh out loud (well, except for e-mails I read from fellow Noodlers Esri and Janet). But I love it when I find them because if you're in a bad mood, these are the types of books to read. Heck, even if you're not in a bad mood, they're great to read.
So my question to all of you is, who are some laugh-out-loud, "snortworthy" authors -- either fiction or nonfiction? I know humor is different for everyone, but I trust you. :)
