Marmarfarfar tells us more.
Hey everyone, OP here! I enjoyed reading all the comments, and I am happy to know I'm not the only one to laugh or cry when reading a good book. Just wanted to say that I am not from an up tight family, me and my brother had been picking on my mom all day making jokes. I was just around her at a bad time and she thought I was still laughing at her, so I might actually deserve this one. :)

I'm going to smack your mum's English teacher so hard. (Usually when someone disdains literature, there's a shitty, boring English (or other local language) teacher behind it.)
Disagree. By the time you get around to having English teachers you've probably already pretty much decided how you feel about reading. A shitty teacher might make you dislike reading more than you already did, but it wouldn't turn a book lover into a book hater.
I can't even fathom hearing someone saying that books aren't funny. I would probably facepalm. Them. With a hardcover book.
I would hand them Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging and dare them to read it without laughing. It's impossible. I think the first one actually has a warning not to read it in public because it WILL make you laugh out loud and people will think you've gone mad.
Another funny book is John Dies At The End, as well as the sequel: This Book Is Full Of Spiders, Seriously Don't Touch It.There are a lot of penis jokes in it so I wouldn't recommend this to kids. I'm an avid reader who prefers supernatural stuff and I've read most of them in the teen section, for those who look at my profile. I had to switch to adult books.
I want to know what book you were reading! Also, people used to laugh at me for crying in books. Some people just don't understand reading.
I cried at the end of a new book that i just finished, Crash and Burn (which by the way is amazing, read it. Seriously!) unfortunately I was at a pool hall with my mum and the friend she was playing with thought I was crying because my mum hit me, and then the bartender came over to ask what was wrong with me :/ so yeah, some people don't get it.
