Fantastic Trivia Series

The Uncle John Bathroom books are a great series of endless trivia. If you are a trivia nut like my husband and I, you'll thoroughly enjoy this book as well as ALL of the others. Good luck finding them all however, some are more difficult to find but each book has new trivia and unbelievable, with the number of books this group as published...they NEVER repeat facts. Amazing. Also, just as the title indicates, if your guy (or you) are like my husband and spend plenty of time in the bathroom throughout the day - this book makes a fantastic read while sitting on the pot. These books are also great to place in the bathroom for company to enjoy while doing their "business".

Great Gift Idea!

My husband received this as a Christmas gift last year (2007). We both enjoy it quite a bit. I'll definitely buy more editions for our house. I also think this is a good gift idea for anyone who enjoys trivia or reading. A great "Get Well" gift idea as well.

Uncle John's -- Always a great read!

This is probably the 5th or 6th Uncle John's bathroom reader I've owned, and it's every bit as good as the rest. The only downside to Uncle John's bathroom reader is that they only come out with a new edition once a year! If you like tips, tricks, trivia, and tidbits, you'll love this book!

It Was 20 Years Ago Today Uncle John Taught the Band to Play!

For trivia fans, 1988 stands as a landmark year. 1988 was the year "Uncle John" and the Bathroom Readers' Institute published the first BATHROOM READER volume containing interesting and oddball facts. That first book ran to 224 pages and cost $9.95. And now, praise be, here we are celebrating the 20th anniversary with this whooping 597-opus sure to delight all lovers of knowledge. Edition 20 is the usual, entertaining collection of isolated facts, short two-four page articles on various topics and extended, multi-part articles on subjects like Music industry lawsuits, the history of bread, etc. along with the Word Origins, Court Transquips, Urban Legends, Strange Lawsuits, Bathroom Lore and other sections that have been a regular feature of the series. The series also retains its punny sense of humor as witness the following sections: Gnome Gnews is Good Gnews, The Ig Nobel Prizes and I Walk the Lawn. Included in Edition 20 are articles on Historical Blunders, Animal Heroes, The Aloha Shirt, Weird Canada, Farts in the News, Odd Buildings, Car Name Origins, Weird Game Shows, Food Origins, Underwear in the News, The World's Oldest Calculator, Weird Wrestlers, Cockney Slang, Dumb Crooks, Comic Phrases and much, MUCH more! And all for $18.95...such a bargain! You can't go wrong with this latest Uncle John Reader or any of the BR series ("Plunges Into," "For Kids," etc.). Total sales for the whole ball of wax is something like 7 million books so Uncle John & Co. must be doing something right. Pick up a copy of Edition 20, read and enjoy! Here's hoping we have another 20 years of Bathroom readers to look forward to!

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader-TOO Funny!!

I read an older edition at my sister's house and found it hilarious and actually informative, so I bought 3 copies of the latest edition as Xmas gifts. I gave one copy to our neighbors, and when the wife saw the title, she immediately handed it to her hubby with disdain. Eventually, her curiosity got to her, and she picked it up and didn't put it down for almost 1 hour! She then left our house early so that she could go home and continue reading it with no interruption. Definitely not a waste of money. Now I just wish someone would give a copy to me!
