Ep 72: Books that Make You Laugh!

Bookbabble Episode 72: Books That Make You Laugh!
Recorded 6 June  2010
Babblers: Lone, Marcel, Renee, Donny

Synopsis:

450book13moore

What are the books that make the babblers break into a smile?  Perhaps even outright laughter?(Although it must be said that would look weird.  Good for clearing a space for you in public transports, though).  Anyway, babblers list out some interesting picks here, and in true Bookbabble style, a most varied and eclectic mix indeed.  Not just funny books, mind you, but satirical and cynical yet darkly humorous works are also covered.  Plus, critically-acclaimed poet who’s actually crap, and Marcel goes postal.  “Some people shouldn’t be allowed to write!”, he wails.
