Kate Buechler | 10 comments Courage Is Contagious: And Other Reasons to Be Grateful for Michelle Obama made me smile a lot. And cry. But mostly smile. It is essays and a pretty quick read. I recommend it.

I love this whole series! I spend much of the books laughing, and this one had some good laughs. It's a little dark (Serge, the main character, kills people - but only bad people); but it's also a fun adventure around all kinds of Florida history in each book, and Serge saves people from problems and bad guys!

Aileen Swenson | 8 comments The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
I read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last year (just book one) and I remember laughing out loud a few times and thinking how rare that was that a book could actually do that.
This is a bizarre book (and series) but the humor is just so sarcastic and witty it is truly in a league of its own.

I loved this series! (And laughed out loud today when I read that Elon Musk's latest rocket had "Don't Panic" on it! Nerdy jokes are the best ones.)

I just finished reading this book aloud to my daughter. I just love Roald Dahl's ability to make bizarre characters funny and lovable!

In preparation for a Spring Break trip to the Utah National Parks, I picked up this book. It isn't a rolling-on-the-floor funny book, but rather a light-hearte..."


I like this!! Thanks for sharing it; this sounds like something I"d like, and I've added it to my TBR pile!

I like this one!! I recently read the biography of Mara Wilson "Where Am I Now?" - the actress who played Matilda in the movie. It also was pretty funny!
