Welcome back to today’s 30-Day Humor Challenge. Humor is abundant if you look for it. One of the places I go to for humor is my library. I love books, and I have a huge collection of authors who are funny and insightful. Books by comedians are an obvious choice, like Ellen DeGeneres (My Point, And I Do Have One), Dennis Miller (Rants), or George Carlin (Brain Droppings).
There’s also humor from modern-day philosophers like Robert Fulghum in his book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, or how about a little sci-fi humor with books like All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Star Trek or The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Maybe you prefer something a little more classic like tales from Mark Twain (that other humorist from my hometown—Hannibal Missouri!).
I enjoy books from funny gal pals like Loretta LaRoche (Life is Not a Stress Rehearsal), Gina Barreca (It’s Not That I’m Bitter) and Mary LoVerde (Stop Screaming at the Microwave). These are just the tip of the iceberg.
Pick up a book and read for fun. Don’t have a humorous book? What a great excuse to visit a bookstore, or to spend some time shopping Amazon.
That’s it. Today’s challenge: Pick up a book and read for fun. (What book would YOU recommend to me and your fellow readers? Post here, on Facebook or shoot me an email: [email protected]. I’d love to hear your favorites!)
That’s it. Congratulations on creating your humor habit. I’ll see you tomorrow for the next challenge.
I’m Karyn Buxman reminding you to create a humor habit and reap the benefits. Humor is power!
