Why makes this Joke funny?

1. Joke: "ISBN thinking about you."
Explanation: This joke plays on the term "ISBN" (International Standard Book Number), which is a number assigned to each edition and variation of a book. The joke also uses a play on the phrase "I`ve been thinking about you," with "ISBN" sounding similar to "I`ve been."

2. Joke: "Q: What do you call 2,000 mockingbirds? A: Two kilo mockingbird."
Explanation: This joke is a play on the title of the famous novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. It plays with the words "to kill" sounding somewhat similar to "two kilo," and a “kilo” is a measure that means a thousand, making “two kilo” two thousand.

3. Joke: "Never read Fitzgerald? You Gatsby kidding me!"
Explanation: This joke refers to "The Great Gatsby," a well-known novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It plays on the name “Gatsby” sounding a bit like “got to be” in the informal expression “You got to be kidding me!”

4. Joke: "Q: What is Bigfoot’s favorite book? A: Hairy Potter."
Explanation: A play on the "Harry Potter" book series by J.K. Rowling, replacing “Harry” with “Hairy” to make a pun relating to Bigfoot’s notable characteristic – being very hairy.

5. Joke: "Dystopian novels are so 1984."

6. Joke: "I got my friend to read Jane Austen. She just needed a little Persuasion."
Explanation: "Persuasion" is a novel by Jane Austen. The joke plays with the dual meaning of "persuasion" - both as the title of the novel and as the act of convincing someone to do something.

7. Joke: "Q: Why are books so brave? A: They have the spine for it."
Explanation: A pun involving the term “spine,” which refers both to a part of a book and is used in the expression “to have the spine” meaning to have courage.

9. Joke: "Q: Why did Dracula go to the library? A: He wanted to sink his teeth into a good book."
