Finding Laughter: Books Still on my Bookshelf (Day 30)
Wow – I cannot believe this 31 days of laughter is only one day from being done! And I am sad to say that I didn’t finish all that I wanted to finish. I can see that my Finding Laughter project is far from complete with books to read, Ted Talks to listen to, experiments to try.
- Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life by James Martin. I am enjoying this book – a lot. I will buy my own copy.
- Contagious Joy: Joyful Devotions to Lift Your Spirits by a BUNCH of female authors from women of faith
- House Calls: How We Can All Heal the World One Visit at a Time by Patch Adams, M.D. I enjoyed the TED Talk by and movie about Dr Adams. So I was thrilled to learn he wrote this book.
- Managing to Have Fun: How Fun at Work Can Motivate Your Employees, Inspire Your Coworkers, and Boost Your Bottom Line by Matt Weinstein. This book is FULL of ideas. I will probably buy this one, too.
- The Healing Power of Humor: techniques for getting through loss, setbacks, upsets, disappointments, difficulties, trials, tribulations, and all that not-so-funny stuff by Allen Klein. This book sounds like it could have some helpful ideas.
- This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett. I didn’t even get to crack open the cover. But I LOVED watching her show growing up. SO I HAVE to read this one.
- Worms in My Tea: And Other Mixed Blessings by Becky Freeman & Ruthie Arnold. This was recommended by a reader. It looks GOOD! I actually bought a used copy.
Your Turn . . . Are there any other books I should be reading? NOTE: I am making my way through the suggestions given here.

I am joining 100’s of others at #write31days to write every day in October on a single topic. My topic is 31 Days of Finding Laughter. I will spend time each day studying laughter to see if I can improve my laughter quotient.
