Welcome, everyone, to Books and Beverages! This week we are discussing Humor books!

Check out our full information page for recipes, drink pictures, and all the books from this episode.

We are the Central Minnesota Libraries Exchange, and we support all types of libraries. This is our book group podcast, where we discuss different genres of books each week, while we all sit in our comfy chairs and drink our beverages. And you are, of course, an important part of this book group. So if you do not already have a nice beverage please go get one, so you can join the experience.

This week our Guest Host is Kelly Groth, from Great River Public Library System!

This genre is a tough one because it’s hard to know what is funny. What makes me roll on the floor laughing may leave you mildly amused. So when we find books many of us think are funny, it’s worth grabbing onto that book! We have several lists of suggestions on our website; so if you need more suggestions, check them out!

This is another genre that overlaps easily in many other areas. You can find humor books in graphic novels. Humor can be fiction or non-fiction; and a lot of books labeled as humor are biographies of funny people. It can be scifi (think John Scalzi), thrillers, history, romance, and even literary fiction. As long as it makes you laugh, you have a winner on your hands!
