Late-Night Laughs


I’m a great fan of Flashlight Worthy, a website devoted to “recommending books so good they’ll keep you up past your bedtime.” The site, run by book lovers Peter Steinberg and Eric Mueller, compiles lists of books that are the best in their category not just bestsellers. They have gathered more than 400 lists, some a bit quirky, such as the new "Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Books Written by Women." Whatever your gender, if you’re looking for some late-night humor, try these Flashlight Worthy picks:

Mama Makes Up Her Mind and Other Dangers of Southern Living

Bitter Is the New Black: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass or Why You Should Never Carry a Prada Bag to the Unemployment Office by Jen Lancaster

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen

IFeel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
