A Few Good Laughs


I already posted about this on Desperate for a Good Read but Wes started reading the book aloud in the car on our way to dinner tonight and we were in tears laughing so hard. I couldn't help but posting about it again. The book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. It has been around for a while - in fact it was all the buzz a couple of book fairs ago. But when I saw it at Costco - I picked it up for my kids. I started reading it instead and found it to be hilarious. Classic middle school scenarios. I was literally laughing out loud when I read it and my kids were thinking I was pretty weird. I don't think they get the humor in the same way that I do - but "A" is reading it now and enjoying it. Now I need to go back and buy the second one.

I have volunteered down at the school during the book fair, and this is one of the first books to be gone! Neither Hannah nor I have read it, but your post makes me want to now! Thanks! I love hearing about great books!

Josh LOVES both of these. There is a rumor that a third one is on the way!

I just put it on my request list at the library. Unfortunately, I'm tenth on the waiting list!
