    This is a great list! You all might also get a kick out of Suburban Haiku ebooks.

    Hey Barb,
    Great overview of the latest ha-ha books!! Hope you are well…I’m sorry I couldn’t see you before I departed for Minnesota. I’m getting settled, but it is culture and weather shock! Today, the high was 30! Tonight will be a one dog night, but sadly I don’t have a dog! Let’s stay in touch…maybe we can hook up via phone —I’d love to share tips and ideas for building blog followers.

      Thank you, Nancy. I’ve read every book, they’re all great. Curl up with a couple of them on a cold night there in Minnesota, and maybe get a small dog? Dogs are very funny!

    I collect concert ticket stubs (and sometimes the accompanying concert wristband, if there is one). I keep them all in a gold box, and I’ve been collecting them for the last 8 years.

    I have read most of these, and will be looking for the rest!
    Have you read any Celia Rivenbark? She’s a local humor writer here in NC, but she’s going nationwide. Her titles include: Bless Your Heart, Tramp; Stop Dressing Your Six-Year Old Like a Skank; We’re Just Like You, Only Prettier; and her latest is You Can’t Drink All Day If You Don’t Start in the Morning. She is one crazy lady.

    I forgot Celia Rivenbark’s latest-latest book, You Don’t Sweat Much for a Fat Girl. Made the NYT bestseller list. Love her books, and no, she doesn’t pay me.:)

      Thanks so much, Melanie. I love Celia’s work! I have two of her books on my kindle. She’s terrific!

        Oh, great, glad you have heard of her. One of my friends worked with her at the local paper. I have met her once, and she’s really a lovely lady. She’s been through a lot in the past couple of years– her husband battled cancer, but I believe he is doing much better now.
        I love your blog– so glad to have found you!
