Fun and Quirky Books
By Paulette

You've all heard the phrase "laughter is the best medicine". Well there is some truth in it. Laughter alleviates stress, boosts the immune system, increases learning and memory capability and in some cases, reduces pain. So finding things that make you laugh is very important. Being with groups of friends that you have fun with usually encourages laughter, as does watching a funny movie or television show. You can also find humor in books. We just started carrying the Robert Benson books F for Effort!, and F in Exams. The books contain humorous, sometimes hysterical answers that have been given on tests. I needed a break from my computer the other day and picked one of these up. Pretty soon I was giggling out loud and some of my coworkers wanted to know what was so funny. So, I read some of the entries. Then we were laughing so hard I was crying. The entries are really funny, but I think various reactions to me reading them out loud made them even funnier. It was a good brain break for everyone and only took a couple of minutes. So if you need a funny pick-me-up or a quirky gift, these books are a great choice.
