A list for Mom: Some funny books

funny book CollageMy mother’s birthday was March 19, and she asked for only one thing: a list of funny books she could get on her Kindle. Mom’s a voracious reader, and she’s a big fan of Janet Evanovich, so I took to Facebook to see if my friends had any suggestions. Boy, did they ever. Here’s the curated list, alphabetical (limiting one title per author, omitting what I knew she’d already read, etc . . .)

*Starred items are currently priced under $10

Dave Barry, Insane City

*Sarah Caudwell, Thus Was Adonis Murdered

Fannie Flagg, Welcome to the World, Baby Girl

*Jim Gaffigan, Dad is Fat

*Liliana Hart, Whiskey Rebellion (Free today?!?!)

*Joan Hess, Malice in Maggody

*Merrill Markoe, Walking in Circles Before Lying down

Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

*Terry Pratchett, The Color of Magic

*Mark Schweizer, The Alto Wore Tweed (99 cents!)

Sarah Vowell, Take the Cannoli

*Betty Webb, The Anteater of Death (99 cents!–getting this one for myself)

And now my amazon recommender-bot is all haywire . . .
