I just read Vidya Samson's Indian Maidens Bust Loose and highly recommend it. It's funny, but with a serious undertone.

UpHill, by Jody Overend. A wonderful, funny book for the over 50s. A chick-lit romp.
Grungia, by Jan Drabek. A clever account of political silliness in an emerging African nation.

"This is a Book" by Demetri Martin. Hilarity ensues.

The Supply Chain Mong by S.C Lawson. Funny if you regularly make catastrophic mistakes at work, but a bit sloppy in places.

Just finished Tyler Stoddard Smith's Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession. There's some compelling history, but mostly just hilarity. Funniest book I've read in a long time.

Anything by Bill Bryson. If you're interested in travel stories he is a must. And for a bit of self promotion I just published a short story called Dale and the Golden Nugget that you might like:

Would love it if you would take a peek at my latest (okay, my first), A Climbing Stock, published by Daily Swan and distributed by Midpoint. It's reached as high as 66 on the best seller satire list here at Amazon in its first week out.

The Supply Chain Mong seems to have disappeared. Any idea why?

I read: My Daily Insanity: Food for Thought by David Glen Schneider. My Daily Insanity: Food for thought
Excellent sarcastic gallows humor from someone trapped in daily opposing winds we are all victims of, really worth reading - and if only to witness a bachelor learning how to prepare his own rations of food - delicious potato salad or a savory stew and at the same time multitasking and writing applications or cultivating friendships on the internet... ;) Great fun! I bought some for friends, too - an ideal present for those who like a fine sarcastic view on everyday misfortunes.

Had enough of UFO paranoia, scepticism, Sci-Fi hype, and wondering NOT "when are aliens coming to see us" BUT "why on earth, in this pokey stretch of the universe, would they visit and what EXACTLY would they want"? And want to laugh about it?
Then read "Alien Contact and Diplomacy: Get it Right or We Suffer"

I just finished reading a new book called Stung Hard that made me change my pants. Its a parody of the Duggar family and, Sweet Mary, its a blast.

Humor is a facet that spices literature if done in a manner that will not offend readers. Humor, tastefully inserted, in serious scenes in a novel adds to the entertainment value of the work.

I loved the humor found in Electric Times: Rumblings of the Working Class, all the articles provide a humor that is rarely seen in everyday life, I highly recommend it!

Just read a book called Speed Limit Dating: The New Dating Technique Speed Limit Dating: The New Dating Techniqueand I laughed out loud so many times! Having tried and failed with online dating for about 2 years, a friend of mine recommended that book and we both decided to try their crazy "6-week dating plan". I don't know if it's gonna work but I certainly date people differently nowadays...

Be sure to check out the Simon's Cat videos on youtube. I think 'TV Dinner' may be my favorite.

"The Billion-Dollar Girl" gave me lots of laughs, especially for all the savage mockery that the Kartrashians and the rest of the beau monde received.
The Billion-Dollar Girl

p.s. Please, don't forget to put the links if these books are on Amazon; some of them sound interesting, and I'd like to read them (yes, sometimes I am that lazy to copy-paste the titles).
