Boy, that is the worst Bryson book to read if you're looking for a laugh. Heh, it's okay but it's nothing like most of his stuff. Try In A Sunburned Country or I'm a Stranger Here Myself.
Wodehouse, I wouldn't say just any of them. The Jeeves and Golf stories are excellent but not laugh out loud in my opinion. Best and funniest in my opinion by far - were Something Fresh (here at MB), Leave It To Psmith, Blandings Castle and Summer Lightning. There's a Blandings anthology called Life At Blandings.
