Road Trip Fun: Best Humor Books on CD & Kindle

Updated on June 4, 2012

Humor books on CD or in Kindle format make great gifts for $20 or less. They ease the stress of long commutes and are a favorite for long road trips. Here are my favorite comedy audio book choices for 2012.

"Bossypants" by Tina Fey

Tina Fey's Bossypants is hilarious! The book is a great read -- or listen -- that intersperses the comedienne's professional biography with lessons learned in her personal life. Tina understands our hectic lifestyles and makes it easier to laugh at the madness. Sample chapter titles include "Growing Up and Liking It," "What Turning 40 Means to Me" and "My Honeymoon, or A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again Either."

Bossypants is laugh-out-loud funny. Consider this praise from the book jacket:

  • "Absolutely delicious!" (A Guy Who Eats Books)
  • "Totally worth it." (Trees)

Bossypants is available as a CD, a hardcover book and a $12.99 Kindle download.

"Go the F**k to Sleep" by Adam Mansbach

Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach is a humorous gift for parents of those who request endless bedtime stories. At just $4.99, this download makes a great stocking stuffer or add-on to another gift. Here's an excerpt:

The cats nestle close to their kittens

The lambs have laid down with the sheep

You're cosy and warm in your bed, my dear

Please go the f**k to sleep.

Priceless! It's also worth buying the hardcover version for beautiful illustrations by Ricardo Cortes.

"Seriously... I'm Kidding" by Ellen Degeneres

Ellen Degeneres's Seriously... I'm Kidding is so funny, I sometimes laugh at every sentence for a chapter straight. The audio book is especially enjoyable because of Ellen's quirky delivery with expert comic timing.

With Seriously... I'm Kidding, listeners learn about Ellen's ridiculous mishaps. The author also shares her insights about love and "another L word." She's left no stone unturned and no window unbroken.

Give this audio book as a gift -- and then be sure to borrow it!

Anything by David Sedaris

To finish, any audio book by David Sedaris bears mentioning. Like the other comedians above, he'll keep you (or your gift recipient) laughing til it almost hurts. Give a gift of Me Talk Pretty One Day or surprise someone with a 14-disc David Sedaris box set.

      forget someone else, I think I'll be gifting Ellen Degeneres to myself. I've always loved her comedy.
