What do you call a woman who can’t stop reading books?? and others of the same ilk…

In the past couple of weeks, two of my English classes have stopped for the summer. (Conversation classes have  l  o  n  g  summer holidays.) To round off the semester, we had some book jokes, so I thought I’d share them here too.

Dave: What do you call a woman who can’t stop reading books?
Pete: Paige Turner…

Sue: What is a flea’s favourite book?
Ann: The Itch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!

Jim: I’ve just published a book on DIY!
Joe: Really?
Jim: Yes – it’s blank and it comes with a free pen…

Cedric went into a bookshop and asked the saleswoman, ‘Where’s the self-help section?’
‘Go and look till you find it!’ she answered.

Ally: What happened when the bomb-sniffing dog wrote his autobiography?
Phil: It got on the bestsmeller list…




Teacher: How many books have you read in your lifetime?
Mary: I don’t know. I’m not dead yet.

Teacher: What does your history book say about the Civil War?
Alison: It doesn’t say anything. I have to read the stupid thing…

Dave: What was the name of the book about a trio of adventurous French cows?
Mark: The Three Moosketeers!


There’s a second page, too – but we’ll leave that for another time!
