Looking for funny books

I've just read a succession of books that are fairly heavy and am feeling in the need for something a bit lighter. Unfortunately most of what I have in my "To Read" pile seem to be following this heavier tone. I decided to come looking for some suggestions on some books that are, well, funny.

I don't really have any preference or guidelines on what I'm looking for, really. I can be any sort of genre; the amount of humor could range from crude to slapstick to sophisticated; etc.. I just want to laugh at least a little. So, let me know some the favorites you have on the lighter side of things.

Thanks in advance!
