Lost in a Good Book,
The Well of Lost Plots
, by Jasper Fforde

These are the second and third books in Fforde's Thursday Next series, and they are just as delightfully literate and goofy as the first--perhaps even more so. Thursday spends even more time in the BookWorld, and finds out quite a lot about how the BookWorld operates, and what characters do when they're offstage. Lenny, for example, likes to visit Watership Down, and the Red Queen has a taste for trashy romances.

I hesitate to say much more about them, because I don't want to spoil the jokes; but I enjoyed them quite a bit, and I have every intention of getting the next in the series when it comes out in paperback.
