Help, I Can't Stop Laughing! (Book Review)
Help! I Can't Stop Laughing is a lighthearted read that goes by quickly. Full of anecdotes by a whole plethora of folks, the book is designed to make you laugh, & beginning with page one, it easily fulfills its destiny. I like to break up the heavy reading I do by inserting a light jaunt of humor here and there, so I deliberately read this book in small doses over a period of a few weeks versus sitting down and reading it outright. It was nice to get the bit of happy to inspire me, and/or make me chuckle when I wanted (all I had to do was pick up the book and start reading), and some of the stories, quips, and embarrassing moments were oooh so easy to relate to (when you have a family, funny things happen!).
There are stories, recounts, bloopers...you name it. One of my favorites was the Billboard Bloopers section:
Tuesday at 4:00 pm there will be an ice cream social. All ladies giving milk will please come early.

Some of the contributors to Help, I Can't Stop Laughing! may already be familiar to you, such as Mark Lowry, Chonda Pierce, and//or Martha Bolton (to name a few). If they're new to you, boy are you in for a treat. This is a book I would recommend for your own personal library, but also one that would make an excellent, and very thoughtful gift idea. Pick up your copy today and let the laughter begin.
