I think there are books in the browsing room that are for entertainment, like I saw the book Marley and Me in there one day so you might find something you like!

Yeah, the browsing room on the ground floor has a whole shelf full of entertaining books. I know I definately saw Cecelia Ahern there!

There are comic/cartoon books like Tintin there.

A great way to learn French.

There used to be a book about humour across different cultures, packed with risque jokes. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of it but it kept me amused... fairly old hardback I think.

Edit: A quick search of the OPAC - I think this is it: Ethnic humor around the world : a comparative analysis - Christie Davies
