Or, in plain English: what do you read when doing your business?

I'm currently reading a book called "The Official Rules of Baseball", which is perfect for toilet contemplation. The author takes a rule, then gives some historical examples of how and why the rule developed.

So boys and girls, what are you reading these days...ah...while doing your business in the bathroom?


Love to read stuff on my Palm Pilot. An occasional game of Pacman...

I was given a copy of the first Uncle John's Bathroom Reader and I liked it so much I bought every succeeding edition.


While I don't read anything in the bathroom while doing my "business", I, too, have discovered the Uncle John's Bathroom Readers. The only problem I have with my collection is that I don't know if I'm missing no. 9 or 11 from my collection, as one of them is not numbered in terms of its place in the scheme of things. And yes, it is one of the annual books.

I've even taken advantage of their Christmas special and loaded up (so to speak Smile ) on most of the other books in the collection. They are all worth getting.

I am also proud to say that one of those books actually won me tickets to go see Barry Manilow because of a trivia game one of the local stations plays every day.

I had a copy of Cecil Adams' "The Straight Dope" which I liked for light reading.

Asimov's two biographies were also good. Lot's of short bits in there.

Now, it's usually a copy of Magic or MUM.

I read whatever I was reading before I go deuce, which is mostly magic.

I feel dirty having written that. Odd topic indeed..

Best,

I always liked Mark Twain's letter to a critic who'd been less than kind to one of his books.

Dear Sir;

I am currently in the smallest room in my house. Your review is before me, shortly it will be behind me.

Yours

Mark Twain.

Apparently I'm wrong. (This is news?) Apparently it's a composer named Max Reger.

Consumer Reports Magazine. I used to keep "Fart Proudly" by Benjamin Franklin on the tank just for a laugh.

I enjoy reading through the encyclopedia of card tricks.

See, I am currently learning and creating tricks to add and perform, but when I see something...it usually spark an idea. Or, I just take that idea and run with it.

good times.

also, sometimes--i read golf digest, good stuff.

I don't read in the bathroom. Come on people- don't you know that sitting on the toilet too long can cause hemorrhoids?

I keep that in there too. But only for wiping, not reading.


You should read it. I always find a few good articles.
