The stress of our everyday life is not something to laugh at. The taxes are increasing, the globe is warming and the population is growing, all at a fast rate.
In times like this, sometimes you feel that perhaps you’ll never get the chance to just sit back, relax and revel in the comfort of happiness. But that’s not true and you know it.
Life is stressful, yes. But there’s so much to be had, and to be done that you simply can’t give up yet. So stop. Take a deep breath, allow yourself to put your head back and relax, and read these four funny books to give your mind some much needed R&R!
¨ The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
If science fiction is your go-to genre, this book is for you. The book focuses on our main character, Arthur Dent, a man who is saved from earth seconds before it is destroyed to make way for an intergalactic freeway. Together with Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised guide to the galaxy, he travels through time and space. Delightfully written, this book is well-balanced and offers some truly memorable characters and concepts. Definitely a book for action adventure lovers!
¨ Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Anderson
How about a short graphic novel based on random incidents of the day? Sarah Anderson’s comics are all based on everyday occurrences and the emotions we go through, but from a hilarious standpoint. From (not) shopping at expensive places to only wearing your other half’s clothes at home (because you can, that’s why!), Sarah Anderson’s book makes you chuckle at the silly things you yourself do in your life, and how wonderful these moments of self-reflection can be.
¨ Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman
For fans of the TV show Parks and Recreation, you might already have some idea on what to expect from a character as delightful as Nick Offerman. The autobiography touches on his life working on the family farm, all the way to his breakout role as Ron Swanson. We also get some strong opinions on topics like sex and religion, swearing and a lot more like gender equality, social norms and homophobia, all written in a unique Nick Offerman way that’s just right.
¨ Something Fresh by P.G. Wodehouse
The first in the Blandings Castle series, this book is considered a classic. Perfect for those who just want to sit back and read some light comedy, Something Fresh presents a world that is delightful and droll. With convoluted plot points, fresh characters and a snappy dialogue, Wodehouse truly exceeds his reputation as one of the best comedy characters.
