The Book Nook Needs a Laugh (9/13)

Welcome to the Book Nook! The weekly thread for all book nerds on The Avocado. This is the place to talk about books you’re currently reading, discuss genres, ask for recommendations, and post serious literary criticism.

Posting pictures is fine as long as they are book related, but I would like this thread to continue to be a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone as much as possible. Thanks, and happy commenting!

This week’s (recycled) prompt: What books do you think are funny? Could be a book that was written as humor, or a book that is basically serious but has a funny scene or a ridiculous character, or maybe a hilarious footnote.

Suggestions for prompts are always appreciated!

If you would like to contribute a short (two to four paragraph) book related biography, essay, tone poem, whatever, for the header, please let me know. The topic choice is wide open, as long as it pertains to books or writing.
