    Glad to find another Robbins fan. He is so witty. Which is your favorite Robbins book? I have read Jitterbug Perfume and the 'Cowgirls' and I like the former.

    I can't really pick a favorite. I love Another Roadside Attraction, Jitterbug Perfume, Still Life With Woodpecker, and Skinny Legs and All. Those four stand out from the others for me.

    The Monster in the Box (Ruth Rendell)
    James Herriot, Gerald Durrell, Terry Pratchett and Bill Bryson have made me laugh too many times to count. James Herriot has also made me cry on a regular basis. The story of Honey, the dog with mange, makes me weep every time.

    Lucky Jim...I've never read it (yet :( ) but I've been told it's funny. I might be dead wrong though.

    Thanks for sharing. I could use a good laugh right about now. I'm heading to the library this weekend. Which of Terry Pratchett's books should I read first?

    I would go for The Colour of Magic, then, The Light Fantastic and then Mort. These are all Disc World books, other comedy fantasy I have read by him are Truckers and Diggers.
    I find them all hilarious and inventive. I'm sure you will enjoy reading him.

    The Serial by Cyra McFadden was hilarious. Several of Elmore Leonard's novels have really funny dialogue, and Vonnegut's "Slapstick" had me laughing throughout.

    The Dexter novels for me.Full of dark witty humor. And I'm surprised that not one Harry Dresden novel is mentioned in this thread. The funniest parts of the book are Bob's parts though.
