Humor Books Recommendations

Have you ever read a book that made you laugh-out-loud? If so, what was it? I heard that Bossypants by Tina Fey, David Sedaris' Me Talk Pretty One Day and A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson are hysterical. Any other recommendations? No romantic comedy books as I'm not a fan of romance books. Fiction or non-fiction; doesn't really matter.

Seems like a romance novel
But that's okay. Thanks.

Oh yes! I forgot that I haveThe Jeeves Collection in my Calibre library. I'll side-load the book to my Kindle now. Thanks for the reminder!

You mentioned A Walk in the Woods, by Bill Bryson. I would say any of Bill Bryson's travel books. They are all hilarious.

You could also try Nancy Mitford if you haven't - The Pursuit of Love, Love in a Cold Climate, etc
And for sure E. F. Benson - Mapp and Lucia

Oh I'm sorry. I just assumed it was because of the title
I'll make sure to check his books out. I've read a couple of reviews and they all say his books are funny. Thanks again.

The late comedian George Carlin has a number of irreverent humor books. Nothing is sacred.
