As John Hodgman says in this book's introduction, "We all know that books are funny. First, they are made of paste and cloth, which is funny, as is the fact that people still buy and read them." With that in mind, the McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes collects the best book-related humor from the humor-laden archives of McSweeney's Internet Tendency. Open it and be regaled by such sketches, lists, letters, and spoofs as:

Postcards from James Joyce to his Brother Stan
Winnie-the-Pooh is My Coworker
Ikea Product or Lord of the Rings Character?
Popular Children's Fairy Tales Reimagined Using Members of My Family
The Very Unauthorized Biography of Steven Seagal
Chuck Norris Erotica
John Updike, Television Writer
Jane Eyre Runs for President
Cormac McCarthy Writes to the Editor of the Santa Fe New Mexican
Holden Caulfield Gives the Commencement Speech to a High School
Letters from Odysseus's College Roommate

And many dozens more.

English majors take note. These pieces might not actually help you with your literature grade, but they will certainly make you chuckle as you read Holden Caulfield's very short high school commencement speech or learn why Emily Dickinson's rap battle coach resigned.
