Some people find the holidays difficult for various reasons:  Some-- loved ones are serving in the military, others have passed on, some have had financial hardships, divorce, empty nest, loss of pet, ill health or just plain blue for no good reason:  etc...  Whatever the case may be... 

I suggest we list "Happy Kindle Reads" for those who need a perk-me-up...feel free to add to the list.  I'm going with kids' title (series) sometimes kids could use a cheering up too.

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's Magic, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's Farm

Two of the free books offered this week, Free-Range Chickens and The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death are supposed to be funny. I haven't read them yet (just got them the other day!) but that might be a bit of humor to lighten the holiday mood.

This is one that I like to read.

Great suggestion tc, I read it about 3 weeks ago. It is definitely a feel good book, there is humor, a goodness toward mankind, love. The thing I enjoyed the most is the author is an Alabamian so I knew exactly where all the locations were although the little community was fictional. I LOL several times!

For a link to show as a picture instead of just a link, when posting, you need to click on the little button above the smiley faces that's 3rd from the left. It looks like a little framed picture. You will get a set of tags like this [ img][/img ] (space inside brackets added so the tags would show up. Then you paste your link between them, like this [ img]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51ay1CdsRqL._SS500_.jpg[/img ] Alternatively, you can highlight the link if you've already pasted it and then click the button, which will put the tags on either side of the highlighted text.

Hope this helps, feel free to try it again! Next we'll work on the Kindleboards linkmaker...

I wasn't sure the Zombie Guide was real so I looked it up.  And bought it for a gift. I got The Stupidest Angel for myself and Zelda.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions.

Durphy: If the giftee enjoys the Zombie Survival Guide, make sure they buy World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie Wars. Same author, full of just as much awesome as the first book!

Make sure the link is to an image, not just a web page (the link should end in .jpg not .htm or .html or something else).

You can't go wrong with any of the Stephanie Plum series. It's guarantee to make you laugh and chase away the blues.
DH is on call for Christmas, my best friend is going home and the family is 3000 miles away. I'm planning to read the Plum holiday book on Christmas Day.
