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.
                                                                -Help I Can't Stop Laughing!

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.

Disclosure:  I was provided a copy for review purposes only.  No other form of compensation took place and all opinions are my own.
