Books are a great gift!

Let me start off by saying that I love to read. I love all books. Here are some that are festive and fun.

Christmas Sucks What to Do When Fruitcake, Family, and Finding the Perfect Gift Make You Miserable By: Joanna Kimes
These days, Christmas lights adorn front porches before the Thanksgiving turkey is even in the oven. Plane tickets to visit relatives you hardly miss cost more that the suitcase full of presents you have to lug across the country. And radios everywhere play songs about that fat guy in a red suit on an endless loop.
Yes, it's official: Christmas Sucks. Christmas Sucks is a humorous look at America's commercialization of the Christmas holiday season and the terrible travel, inordinate amount of preparation, and family strife that accompany it. You can commiserate with the fact that everyone drives themselves into debt buying gifts, no one enjoys seeing long lost relatives, and everybody is creeped out by the department store Santa. With twelve days of Christmas, there are plenty of reasons why this is far from the most wonderful time of the year.
This book was hilarious and pretty dead on. Joanne is not harping on the actual holiday but how Christmas has become a "Who can get the biggest present" and having to be around family members for the sake of the holiday.

WTF?: How to Survive 101 of Life's Worst F*#!-ing Situations
By: Gregory Bergman and Anthony W. Haddad
Luckily for you, this book fills in the blanks and provides some intentively therapeutic, occasionally offensive, sometimes illegal, always hilarious solutions to when life makes you say "what the f*#!?"
Whether it happens at the office or at home, out on the town or in the bedroom, life's most f*#!-ed up situations ate covered in this entertaining guide. Why turn lemons into lemonade? WTF? spits lemon juice into life's eye - and gives it a good kick in the junk.
This book was pretty funny. With topics like "A really drunk girl hits on you" and "You're too short to be noticed by girls," you will be giggling the whole time. This is a fun read.
