Working at Lulu can introduce a person to tons of new books and authors, as you’d probably imagine. Since I have been here, I have hoarded some of my favorites from the rest of the office at my desk. They are the ones that have caught my eye walking by as they peek out from our bookshelves. Some are about music, some about food, but mostly, ones that make me laugh. Below are just a few recommendations for anyone looking for a grin.
Never Iron When Your Are Naked
by Trevor Perry
Advice your mother should have given you, but never did. Trevor Perry has a gift for taking the complicated things in life and turning them into good advice. While ironing naked may be dangerous, Perry also reminds us to live with passion, to laugh often, and to constantly stand in awe of life itself.
The Things Your Don’t Know You Don’t Know
by Harland Williams
Get ready to laugh yourself silly, scratch your head in wonder, and perhaps even cry as you delve into the hilarious and often bizarre mind of renowned actor/comedian Harland Williams. Here, Williams shares his ridiculous and sometimes poignant observations on…well…everything. Some are things you may have overlooked, others you just not have cared to notice. But with Williams unique spin on life and the things we interact with, you’ll start second guessing how you take things in.
The Torture Device Coloring Book
by Erik Ruhling
You might feel slightly guilty as you snicker at this coloring book clearly not intended for children. This coloring book’s irreverent humor is reminiscent of artwork by one of my favorite artists Brandon Bird. In Ruhling’s book, colorers can explore all sorts of historical torture devices, each with an accompanying rhyme. Stay within the lines or you will be punished.
