Poll: What are your favorite laugh-out-loud reads?
I have been attacked at the least expected places.
In my car on the way to school, leaving me covered in coffee while I listened to Libba Bray’s Going Bovine.
At the library when I began reading Linda Urban’s Crooked Kind of Perfect.
On my princess chair at home as I enjoyed every last one of Tom Angleberger’s books.
Attacked by fits of giggles.
It has happened to you all, Nerdy friends. I’m sure of it.
You start to chuckle and, as you attempt to contain yourself, tears start to stream down your face.
People look at you and wonder what in the world is wrong with you.
And then they see the book.
It’s a great conversation starter and a nearly guaranteed way to sell books to kids. If it makes you laugh so hard that you snort, it’s worth a look.
So share your favorite laugh-out-loud titles in the comments so we can all laugh with you.
