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



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.

The babblers talk poems!  An incredibly well-thought out podcast, filled with deliberate ponderings and critical analysis of the artform this episode is most certainly NOT.  Favourite poems get recited, emotions and thoughts that accompany them are shared.  Tidbits include a syair recital, a cheeky piece by Lars, serious one by Gem, an original by Donny, and a poetry textbook by Stephen Fry.  Also, the guys bring exciting ebook news to diehard ebook fan Gem.
