50 of the Funniest Books Ever Written — Barnes & Noble ReadsAsk somebody the best place to get a laugh, and they'll likely give you the name of their favorite sitcom or YouTube channel or stand-up comic. But how many of them will suggest a book? Not nearly enough. Which is a shame, because good ole fashioned books—the kind printed on paper and distributed in mysterious places called bookstores and libraries—contain some of the best comedy ever created by other human beings. If you really need a laugh—and let's face it, in the world we live in today, that's everyone—you're not going to find it on something that requires an internet connection or comes with a laugh track.

Here are 40 books that we consider to be the funniest ever written.
