It’s Read an Ebook Week, that magical week of March 2-8, where people head to the ebook orchards and pick the ripest ones they can find. Some are free, some are on sale and all are ebooks. (If they weren’t, Read an Ebook Week would be a strange title.)
Since I’m a character in a humor book, I thought I’d highlight some humor ebooks participating in Read and Ebook Week. If you want to search around yourself, here’s the full list of humor books. http://www.smashwords.com/books/category/882/newest/1

I hope I’ve given enough to scratch your humor itch, to get your humor fix, to pack your humor wound. Until next time, remember:
Feed a humor, starve a cold!
Are we to deduce anything momentous because you listed the book you live in as Third?
It means I’m the third horseman of the apocalypse. Or maybe I’m one of the whoresmen, the four horsemen’s lesser known counterparts.
Ha ha ha ha ha – or a carsmen?
Great reminder Car. I love ebooks. From now on I’ll ask you for book links when I need a new read for my Kindle.
Asking me might not be the best idea. While this list turned out okay, most of my recommendations end up being about strange non-fiction books on knitting with nose hair or mating rituals of obscure beetle breeds.
I sure appreciate that heads up Car. Somehow those recommendations don’t sound strange coming from you. Hopefully you would only recommend books on knitting with hair from the nose and not from elsewhere on the body.
