    Wow, thanks for all the great recs... I've actually read the Edge of Reason, loved it as much as the first. I've tried one Keyes book too and like Bama said, found it hard to get into, but I'll probably try another one of her books just to see, as long I borrow it from someone or the library.

    And oh, I should add a recommendation of my own, "E" by Matt Beaumont. It's written in the same chatty style as Bridget Jones diary, and I found it hilarious.

    Home to Harmony by Philip Gulley

    It's about a small town and its quirky residents.

    Hilarious!

    Happiness by Will Ferguson is amazing, very black comedy but brilliantly written--

    The Frog King by Adam Davies is fabulous as well.

    Personally, I always go with "Catcher in the Rye" when I want funny and light. It's short, and, to me at least, one of the funniest, well written books. Of course you may have already read it...but that never stops me!

    Beowolf by Tom Holt in the scifi fantasy section is great, anything by him is good, or you could go with Christopher Moore in fiction, or Timichem Dorsey-who I just discovered and like and also Michael McClelland who is new and good.

    Funny books...

    About A Boy by Nick Hornby as mentioned above is a great choice (as is High Fidelity)
    Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks
    Anything by David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day is a great place to start)
    Perv - A Love Story by Jerry Stahl
    Sick Puppy by Carl Hiassen
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?
