Dear Honored Readers,
Laughter is music for your body and your soul. Laughter is healing for the body. Laughter helps you see things in a more positive manner. Here are suggestions of humorous books to read.
I like http://www.evanovich.com/ Stephanie Plum is an imperfect lady who nabs people who skip out of town while on bond. Janet writes about characters you might have met in person, or would never hopefully have met in person. She makes mistakes…big mistakes and yet she keeps her . The following link on Amazon lists funny romance novels.‘s series. You can find all of her series on her :
Another writer I like who writes humorous romance novels is Sophie Kinsella. Her Confessions of a Shopaholic shows Rebecca Bloomwood going from bad debt to worse debt and feels she must buy everything that calls her from a store. It is hilarious how she gets in and out of trouble. It’s also a movie.
In case you need other funny romances to stir up laughter for you, here is a list from Amazon of Best Funny Romance books. http://www.amazon.com/The-Best-funny-romance-books/lm/1F28HZMOC5Y91. Reading about them might inspire you to check one of them out at the library or to purchase a used copy for an inexpensive price. In 1970 they printed the story in
If you write , have children, or just like to read funny picture books, here are the names of three of my favorites:
1. Mexicali Soup by Kathryn Hitte and William D. Hayes, Parent’s Magazine Press 1970. The mother is fixing the family’s favorite soup. However, each member of the family tells her to leave out something that they don’t like. http://www.amazon.com/Mexicali-Soup-Kathryn-Hitte/product-reviews/0819304034/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1
2. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by is a funny book. It’s one of those when it is happening to you, it’s not so funny, but a day later, you begin to see the humor. You can laugh.
3. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume. Having a younger brother can have its good points and its bad points. This helps children look at things in a different way and helps them survive their own messes.
You can learn a lot about the secrets of writing good books by reading 100 books of best-selling authors. Look for these books in your local library or purchase them from an inexpensive place. Ask your friends what they’ve enjoyed reading lately. Many people listen to books on tape or CD while they travel to work or while they’re cleaning house.
Do something you enjoy for the next hour. It’ll make you feel better.
