Need some ideas for great books to read

I don't know about books to make you laugh, but James Patterson has a wonderful collection of detective novels. The best thing is that they are all available on audio books at the library, so when you are too tired to read, you can still listen. They were a life saver when I couldn't take one more episode of Jerry Springer!

Another suggestion, if you like the legal genre and haven't already read them, is John Grisham's books. Unfortunately, I read them as fast as he writes them, and he hasn't published a new one lately. They are guaranteed to entertain you.

This might not be your cup of tea, but....

I started buying the Harry Potter books for my child, hoping to get him excited about reading, but I've ended up being a bigger fan. When the 6th book came out, it was perfect timing as I was home recuperating from my 7/7 TAH/BSO. I read it in less than 2 days!

I would recommend Greg Maguire. He wrote Wicked, and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. Lots of fun!!!

My surgery is scheduled for Monday. I am looking forward to reading the newest Harry Potter.

I 2nd the vote for "Skipping Christmas" - it is one of the funniest books I've read. The movie was cute, but didn't do the book justice.

And I'm with Herbsandveggies, I eat up the lawyer books that John Grishom writes as fast as he puts them out. I enjoy James Patterson, as well. My favorite book of his (and one of my favorites of all time) is Suzannes Diary for Nicholas. Although if you are wanting something funny and lighthearted - this is not the book to read!

And if you enjoy something really different - I am an avid fan of Anne Rice. I love to read the Vampire Chronicles and the stories about the Mayfair Witches. It's really not a morbid, or scary story that she tells...just something outside the norm.

Happy Reading! And good luck with your surgery!

I'm so glad to hear this, because I bought this book before my surgery and haven't started it yet! This will be the book I start on tomorrow!

"The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love" by Jill Conner Browne. Totally zany--can't exactly describe it. Set in the Southern US. The SP Queens have a website, too, I think.

"A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson. A humourous account of a trip along the Appalachian Trail.

"Molvania: a land untouched by modern Dentistry" by Santo Cilauro. This is a spoof on some of the better known travel guides.

Hope this helps,
Laura

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is one of the best books I've read. Also anything by Carl Hiaasen - he wrote Strip Tease, is hilarious. Happy Reading!
