Is This Anything? by Jerry Seinfeld

Lucky for us, Jerry Seinfeld has been meticulous about saving his written comedy bits over the course of his career and he’s selected his favorites for this generous collection. Organized by the five decades that his time doing Seinfeld and stand-up spans, it treats us to gem after gem of observational humor, as well as inside moments of the life and process of one of our greatest performers. A perfect gift—this book could not come at a better moment. — Melinda

Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh

Allie Brosh has returned! Childhood shenanigans, stories of dogs, anecdotes of life’s weirdness abound, and reveal with aching (and hilarious) vulnerability the health crisis, heartbreak, tragedy, depression, grief, and existential ennui that led to her Internet disappearance in 2013. It also goes into the fortitude to survive some of the worst things the world can throw at you, or that you can throw at yourself. Allie Brosh has survived and is finding her way, with a snicker and pencil-drawn cartoons, and will help you survive, too. — Jocelyn

Paperbacks From Hell by Grady Hendrix

I don’t remember the last time I’ve hugged a book so much. A wonderful combination of history, trivia (like did you know how the gift card industry influenced aspects of the cover art?), social commentary, and art design, all tied together in over-the-top covers and seemingly ridiculous plots. Perfect for fans of horror and sci-fi, this book will make your wish list grow exponentially. - Rachel

Medallion Status by John Hodgman

John Hodgman (Vacationland, The Daily Show) wants you to know that for a while there, he was famous, but not that famous. In his latest book, Hodgman uses his razor wit and strong sense of irony to teach some of the lessons he’s learned as a guy who is kind of famous, like the finer points of wearing a nude suit, the pain of being typecast, and the perks of having Platinum Medallion Status. - Aric

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come by Jessica Pan

As a lifelong introvert, this book made me snort-laugh whilst giving me cause for self-reflection. It also made me feel goodwill towards my fellow humans, a miracle for someone who sees strangers primarily as potential sources of anguish and irritation. Dare I say my heart grew a size or two, in true Grinch fashion? A warm, funny read for anyone feeling disconnected. - Ilana

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America by Matt Kracht

There are birders, and then there are Birders. But what about the rest of us? We all come across that noisy blue pokey one that screams*, the herds of tiny round brown birbs**, and the tubby grey sacks with tiny heads*** but there hasn’t been a specific guide for us meh-birders until now. Crass, blunt, and incredibly accurate, this is a field guide begging to be gifted, loved, and worn down by use. (Either in the field or just showing it off to folks.) - Rahcel

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

Fisher was an actress, geek icon, and a professional screw-up who held nothing back from her audience. She called herself the product of “Hollywood incest” and never failed to find the humor in life. My nerdy little heart reveled in every moment. The secrets are as juicy as expected. More importantly, it’s full of the wit and self-deprecation we expected from our foul-mouthed princess. - Ivy
