I love this kind of info and book!
I went to White Elephant Christmas Party once and fought vigorously and ruthlessly for a book entitled "Big John's Bathroom Reader" It is filled with insane trivia, true and amazing facts. I LOVE it!!!!!!

I am going to track this one down as well.

I used to have one of the bathroom readers, too. Great fun in the loo!

Obscure Aesop's fables? Count me in!

I have a strict no books in the bathroom policy. I am a weird germaphobe type. But I'll keep it in the living room, it sounds like a hoot!

I really don't think there are two or three reasons to love Alabama...

Todd said...

Yeah, I'm definitely more of a 'Bathroom Readers' fan.

Bsoholic said...

I've never understood reading in the bathroom. Seems to me it's sort of unsanitary, though I could just be a germaphobe...

Sounds like a good read (bathroom or not). :P

Bsoholic said...

(just read gillian's comment) me too! haha!

I think they should have printed the book on a roll of toilet paper instead. That way it would be dual purpose. Plus, it eliminates the problem of not being able to sell it to friends because they would have all borrowed the book; that wouldn't be an option if it were on TP!

That Ben!

Hey Logo, thanks for the visit. Love the family pic below which I automatically captioned as Trouble Incorporated (I mean that in the warmest of ways :).

NOT reading in the WC seems pretty strange to me.Sounds like a great book.

Candace said...

Did you just say "splash" in the way I think you did? ^_^

bathroom reader books don't make any sesne to me for a number of reasons. personally, i don't read in the bathroom, but if i did, i'd just bring in a laptop and surf the web. books are so... web 1.0 =:-)

TLP said...

LOL. For when the crossword puzzle of the day is too easily finished?

Nessa said...

I have several bathroom books in my potty room. I love them, full of entertaining and useless information.
