#BookADay: Books That Made Me Laugh

Which books do you immediately think of that made you laugh out loud?  Without giving it too much thought the following had that effect on me:

Tina Fey Bossypants

David Sedaris Me Talk Pretty One Day

Stephen King On Writing

While I waited for an oil change, I sat in a lounge and read Tina Fey’s book.  Laughed so much that I had to put it down because I drew attention to myself.  As a result, two nice customers talked with me about it and Ms. Fey.  Each said they planned to read Bossypants, too.

David Sedaris’ book probably had the biggest reaction out of me.  I was in my bedroom in the Inner Sunset of San Francisco.  Grateful my roommate wasn’t home, cried happy tears, gasped for air.  Needed a cigarette after I read parts of Me Talk Pretty One Day.

Tried to read Stephen King’s book on a bus and was unsuccessful stifling my laughter amongst the crowd.  Had to close that one, too, till I was safe in the comfort of my home and could make some noise.

I love it when others give me joy, can make me laugh till it hurts.
