A story about a woman giggling on a train led to a bunch of book recommendations

The book was Theft By Finding: Diaries by David Sedaris.

A Twitter story of a laughing bibliophile has inspired users to share their favourite comedic books.

It all started with author Holly Smale sharing a story of a woman laughing out loud at a book she was reading on the train on Monday morning.

After copious requests to know the book in question, author of the Geek Girl series Smale did a small investigative trip “to the loo” to take a peek.

As well as many promises to buy the book which made the lady in question laugh (David Sedaris’ Theft By Finding: Diaries), the tweet turned into a thread of recommendations for rib-tickling reads.
