While paper books appear to becoming obsolete with ebooks etc I still like to keep an "old fashioned library" of reference books in my bookcase. The latest addition is Gyles Brandreth's Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations. This is, quite simply, the ultimate collection of wisecracks,quotations and one-liners to fit any subject you care to mention. Presented alphabetically from "Academic Life" through to "Youth" each offering is meticulously indexed and referenced. Perfect for dipping in and out of, the contents are both clever and very, very funny - a quotation for every occasion. Gyles Brandreth has produced a superb fifth edition of this title which I wholeheartedly recommend - not only is it a delight to read, it is also a beautiful book worthy of 5*.
