Funny Business: On Our Bookshelves

December, 2015

They say that humour is like music: you either hear the beats or you don’t. So selecting a list of “funny” books was a tad bit tricky. The solution? A little of everything—dark humour, embarrassing memoirs, witty rhymes—even a bedtime story best told using your inside voice. We hope it hits your funny bone. Happy reading.
