5 Funny Books for When You Hit the Road

I love road trips. I can't wait for my next chance to spend time with my sister searching for the best swimming hole in the Carolinas, trekking with my friend, Amber, or best of all, exploring a city with my sweetie. I love the conversations we have in the car, I love the music we share, and I love a good laugh. Audiobooks are a GREAT way to break up the monotony of the interstate, particularly when they are funny.

So, without further adieu, books that have cracked me up on long drives:

  1. Farewell My Subaru - Doug Fine
  2. NPR Funniest Driveway Moments
  3. I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence - Amy Sedaris
  4. In a Sunburned Country - Bill Bryson
  5. Fool - Christopher Moore

Amazon Says: “Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students.” —Dallas Morning NewsFool—the bawdy and outrageous New York Times bestseller from the unstoppable Christopher Moore—is a hilarious new take on William Shakespeare’s King Lear…as seen through the eyes of the foolish liege’s clownish jester, Pocket. A rousing tale of “gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity,” Fool joins Moore’s own Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck! as modern masterworks of satiric wit and sublimely twisted genius, prompting Carl Hiassen to declare Christopher Moore “a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.” less...

Amazon Says: Read by the author Nine CDs, 10 hours Just in time for the 2000 Olympics-the bestselling quthor of A Walk in the Woods takes listeners on a truly outrageous tour Down Under. Compared to his Australian excursions, Bill Bryson had it easy on the Appalachian Trail.  Nonetheless, Bryson has on several occasions embarked on seemingly endless flights bound for a land where Little Debbies are scarce but insects are abundant (up to 220,000 species of them), not to mention crocodiles. Taking listeners on a rollicking ride far beyond packaged-tour routes, IN A SUNBURNED COUNTRY introduces a place where interesting things happen all the time.  Leaving no Vegemite unsavored, listeners will accompany Bryson as he dodges jellyfish while learning to surf at Bondi Beach, discovers a fish that can climb trees, dehydrates in deserts where temperatures leap to 140 degrees F, and tells the true story of the rejected Danish architect who designed the Sydney Opera House. less...
