Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Amy Einhorn, $25.95) is a book that makes you laugh long after you’ve stopped reading. Jenny Lawson relays the details of her childhood in a way that makes you glad you didn’t grow up in her house, but still wish that her stories were your own. From domesticated raccoons to pirate alligators, Lawson turns everyday activities into side-splitting tales, and when you think she can’t possibly make you laugh harder, she’ll get lost in her hometown with a GPS.

This Is a Book - Demetri Martin

Will every joke and funny story in Demetri Martin’s This Is a Book (Grand Central, $14.99) leave you writhing with laughter? No, probably not. The cumulative effect, though, of reading Martin’s observations, such as that “99.99% of all castles in America are located in fish tanks,” cartoons, palindromes, stories (one about a bee sting told from the points of view of the target, the bee, the rolled up newspaper, a squirrel, a tree, etc.), a scene detailing the arrival of an alien commander who refuses to speak with anyone except Miss Universe, lists, graphs, and many strikingly peculiar contributions, including an ingenious crossword puzzle where every answer is the same letter, will stimulate wonder, awe, a little head-scratching, and yes, very likely, a few laughs.

You're Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death, and Other Humiliations - Michael Ian Black

For any fan of Michael Showalter’s Mr. Funny Pants, or Tina Fey’s Bossypants, here is a non-pants-related, but equally funny read. Michael Ian Black explores life, love and a mediocre career with hilarity, self-deprecation, and a healthy dose of indignation. Favorite bits: anything having to do with his mom/family/sister, an attempted explanation of his obsession with Fat Kevin Federline, and the story of candlestick shopping. If you appreciate a dry sense of humor, which occasionally trips into the ridiculous, this is the book for you.
