The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible As Literally As Possible - A.J. Jacobs

A Book that makes you Laugh


This prompt (which is a couple of days behind... I know I am going to finish this 30 day book challenge in like December) made me immediately think of one book, The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs. This book was hilariously written, but all the while had some good insights into certain rules from the old testament of the bible. You see, Jacobs decides to take a year and live the bible exactly as written in modern New York. He focuses on a few "rules" at a time and most times the results are nothing less then hysterical. 


So if you are looking for a good laugh where you also may accidentally learn something along the way, this one is a good choice.
