10 GREAT BOOKS THAT WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD [SHOWING SLIDE 10 OF 10]

Heartbreak, alcoholism, dead people, religion and military bureaucracy: We know we’re not supposed to laugh about that stuff, but we can’t help it when we read the books by the writers in this week’s list (not to mention class issues, recluses, self-improvement and choking—real gut-busters!). Some books are just funny but these books make us feel all over again like we’re in the back row of 7th-grade science class tittering after the teacher discusses human anatomy. So bring on the dire news headlines—we’ll be laughing all week long.
