Right Ho, Jeeves - by P.G. Wodehouse

Yes, you should buy a Kindle so you can be introduced to Bertie Wooster (kept in line by his butler Jeeves) and Bertie's friends, such as the incomparable Gussie Fink-Nottle!

Learn why you should never combine public speaking with over consumption!

The course of true love never did run smooth and obviously the British do not know the cautionary tale of "speak for yourself John Alden." Find out firsthand from the parallel tale of that newt loving man-about-town, Gussie Fink-Nottle.

Of the many hysterical Jeeves & Wooster books by P.G. Wodehouse, Right Ho, Jeeves (£4.70! UK edition) (5,89 Deutsch edition) is considered the most hilarious and falling down funny . . . by me . . . and others. Find out for yourself. Spend Christmas Day sequestered in a corner after dinner, chortling and guffawing. What better gift to yourself than a good read and a good laugh?  (Note how the US edition is free, but the UK and German versions are pricey!)

Here is a bit of Jeeves and Wooster patter from this novel, but it could have come from any of them.  It is a typical exchange that fans  have come to expect. Wait for it . . .
"Yes, Jeeves?" I said. "Something on your mind, Jeeves?"

"I fear that you inadvertently left Cannes in the possession of a coat belonging to some other gentleman, sir."

I switched on the steely a bit more.

"No, Jeeves," I said, in a level tone, "the object under advisement is mine. I bought it out there."

"You wore it, sir?"

"Every night."

"But surely you are not proposing to wear it in England, sir?"
