Share a book that made you laugh. 

Paddington Goes to Town.

I read this book when I was about ten and thought it was hilarious. I can still see myself lying in bed at night reading it, loving it, and laughing out loud.

There was one chapter in particular called A Visit To The Hospital that had me in tears. Paddington ended up having a session with a psychiatrist by mistake.

I found it recently when I was cleaning out my shelves and read it again and it was still funny. A good read.

Another book that I found hilarious was this one. It could be listed as my Funniest Book in Most Inappropriate Situation.

Stark
Ben Elton

I read it when I was in the maternity ward after having Lizzie. So we were in a room with three other women and their babies. I'd draw the curtains around my bed and sit in bed reading it, laughing loudly. They probably thought I was suffering some kind of post natal breakdown. But it was worse if I left the curtains open because then every time I'd crack up they'd all look at me and give me funny little smiles and I'd have to smile back. And I almost felt like I should read them a page or two just so they knew what was going on, but then I thought maybe they wouldn't think it was funny and that would be the worst worse.

Two books well worth a read though

    I've enjoyed all his books. Except Dead Famous – about the reality TV show, wasn't a huge fan of that.
    He's a very clever guy.

  7. cat Says:

    Well I can tell you, there's usually not much to laugh about in maternity wards

  8. Waterbaby Says:

    i know. and what there is to laugh about is funny only years later.

    We love Paddington! Well, I expect the kids feel that they are too sophisitcated for that now but we used to love reading it together.

    They'll drag him out and appreciate him again one day I'm sure. He's such a character.
