Book Gang Podcast Episode 29: Funny Books (with Fables Books)

If you need some funny books in your life, this podcast on the funniest books is for you.

Kristin from Fables Books and I agree that we don’t gravitate toward lighthearted books so it is always a fun surprise when books like these bring us unexpected joy.

Expand your book stack beyond the funny classics like Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Bill Bryson, and Trevor Noah. This humorous book stack offers some under-the-radar books that hit all the right funny notes.

Whether you are looking for short stories, science fiction, a collection of essays, middle-aged hilarity, or coming-of-age YA humor- we have you covered.

We want to remind our listeners that Fables is our partnered bookshop and all of the links do go directly to their store. Remember, this shop also offers a used book collection. Please support our indie book shop.
