I really don’t read many funny books, so coming up with three authors I truly consider funny was harder than I thought it would be.

  1. Christopher Moore
    I’m pretty sure the first Christopher Moore book I read was the Island of the Sequined Love Nun, which I loved. Hilarious! I made my husband read it and he enjoyed it too. And I found out today that he was actually born and raised in Ohio. Nifty, huh?

  3. Douglas Adams
    He’s a must-read author as far as I’m concerned. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series is classic. It’s a shame that I’ve never listened to any of the radio series, might be a good idea for the next long car trip. I have to admit that I’m also a fan of his Dirk Gently series.

  5. Brian M. Wiprud
    I fell in love with his writing when I first read Pipsqueak. It’s a smart, funny, quirky mystery and I adored it. I’ve since read all of his books that I could get my hands on. And he’s got a new one coming out this summer – Ringer. It’s already on my wishlist.

So, who makes your “Funny Authors” list?

    I’ve only read one Moore book, but it was cracking me up! I think another one I would definitely add to my list is Patrick McManus! I was born and raised in Montana, and his short stories crack me up every single time . . . but that could be my upbringing!! Not sure who my third would be . . .
