Light-hearted literature

Our books range from past to present, science fiction to satire, and short stories to novels.

We personally read and choose books from well-known humor writers and positive book reviews.

  • "My package arrived quickly and made me feel special during a stressful packing time! The treats inside my box were high quality and had to do something with my book, but not enough to give the story away."

  • "I can’t wait to read another from Funny Bone Books and send one to my best friend for Christmas. Obsessed with this bookish pick-me-up!!"

  • "I hate trying to decide what books to read, so the idea of having a book chosen for me by a real human was appealing. The choice that Funny Bone made did not disappoint, and I am eagerly awaiting the next."
