A Holiday Tradition

We gave one of these to our son-in-law for Christmas a few years ago and now it's become a tradition. You can pick any page and enjoy/learn something. And no, it doesn't have to be in the bathroom. :)

My First Bathroom Reader; Not My Last

I was gifted this volume of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader series by my fiancee's father, this last Christmas. I didn't know what to think, at first. It seemed kind of... an odd gift. But, what the heck, I figured: I put it on top of the toilet tank in good faith, and made plans to start reading it "when the time was right." This is an excellent book. I'd never had a book specifically designed to be a bathroom reader, before (though I've used other books for the purpose, such as Finnegans Wake); this is a collection of trivia and interesting, obscure anecdotes, reflecting a lot of research. The stories are fascinating, and the format (they're broken up into chunks, scattered throughout the work) is appropriate for the task at hand. Reading it was a pleasure everytime I had to sit down to work. :) I doubt that I will wait till next Christmas, to see whether I have another volume waiting for me. This was my first in this genre, and in this series, but it certainly will not be my last.

Bathroom Reader

I have most of the Bathroom Reader books (probably 25 by now) and I love every one of them. "Curiously Compelling" is a welcome addition to my library of trivia.

It's one for the Pooper!

If you like to take your time on the crapper and you enjoy the thrill of using up brain cells on useless trivia, this book is perfect. Actually, I shouldn't say useless, there are tons of great stories and facts from just about anything you can think of. I must say, I spend a lot more time in the JOHN.

Love these books!

Even if you don't read while on the john,if you're a trivia fanatic, this is one you've got to have!
