Item Description...
A sixteenth installment of the trivia series is organized under short, medium, and longer-length reading segments and covers a wide array of subjects, from the origins of superglue and news stories about underwear to famous animals and Wild West heroes.

Publishers Description
Now in its 16th year, The Bathroom Reader — which seems to have replaced the tie as the most popular Father's Day gift idea — has become a movement, with satisfying, easily digested new selections sure to wipe away bathroom boredom. Handily arranged by length — “short” (a quick read), “medium” (1 to 3 pages), and “long” (for those extended visits) — the book covers everything from Americana to The Name Game to Pop Science and Wordplay. Readers can learn the origins of superglue, sample news stories about underwear, read about animals famous for 15 minutes, and learn of unknown heroes of the Wild West. This broad assortment eliminates ennui while wittily educating readers trapped in airports, cars, buses, or lavatories.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
You can always find time to read Uncle John's Bathroom Readers.  Jan 25, 2008
One thing about these Readers is that you never run out. There is a whole series of them to read and even if you read them all;you can start all over again. What else is there to do when sitting on the throne? I suppose you can sing,but eventually you run out of songs.You can whittle,but it makes a mess on the floor.But with these Readers,there is something new and interesting with every turn of the page. There will surely be some things that just don't interest you;so what,just skip to the next thing.Don't miss the liners at ther bottom of each page..some interesting bits of trvia. The variety and scope of the things is what really sets these Readers from any other type of book.
For instance,where else can you learn the differences between the political parties ,Democrats,Whigs,and Republicians and how they came about. It is all explained in a few pages.
To those who are interested in music,they will find lots of stuff.
Something as simple that it was a German,George Graff,who wrote "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling".and he never went to Ireland.

For those who like poetry,how's this?

"I'm known for my sparkling wit.
So when I need a trivial tidbit.
It doesn't take long
'Cause I've got Uncle John
I just couldn't make doo without it."

For those who like bits of trivia,they're here.
Brainteasers and quizzes to entertain you.
Learn the Hobo road signs and expressions.
Then there's Urban Legends.
Plenty of proverbs.

This is just a taste of what you'll find to occupy yourself and improve your knowledge when you're tied down "taking care of business.

However;I must warn you;

Leave it laying around,and it'll surely disappear.

Worth even more time than a bathroom visit  Jun 28, 2006
This one was so engrossing that I wound up reading it at length, in bed. There's just so much trivia in it, and its tone is light and witty. As with all the Bathroom Readers I've bought, it's worthy of a re-read.
Great potty book.  Sep 3, 2005
The Bathroom Reader Institute has yet again delievered a fantastic, humorous, and great read for the most important seat in the house.
Everyone should have a reader  Mar 1, 2005
I think everyone should have a bathroom reader. It is so full of fun and interesting facts, I started taking it out of the bathroom and reading it on the train to work. Since the tidbits are so short, it doesn't take much concentration and you can easily pick up anywhere in the book. My husband and I have a great time telling eachother about the things we read in the book.
Great reading in or out of the bathroom  Jul 4, 2004
The 16th edition was my first purchase of the series, and now I am probably going to get many more of the books in the series because these are great ways to spend relatively short periods of time and learn so much interesting stuff at the same time. As a bonus, every page has what the authors call "running feet" which is little tidbits of trivia, such as "When a person is dying, hearing is the last sense to go. Sight is the first."

Also, since there are over 500 pages in the recent editions, there is plenty of material to read and one won't finish the book all that quickly, especially if it is used in the bathroom alone.

The topics in the 16th edition cover just about everything imaginable, from how rock bands got their names, urban legends, history of the bagel, to interesting facts and trivia about hurricanes and everything in between. I would think this book would be a great gift for someone in a hospital and I would think it might make a great travel companion while sitting in airports or hotels, though its size and weight makes it more difficult to pack in carry-on luggage.

I wish every doctor and dentist had a set of these books in their waiting rooms! It would make those long waits go by much faster and much more enjoyably. And how about automobile repair waiting rooms? They would be ideal places to have these books for customers to read as they wait. The relatively short length and variety of the entries would be perfect in those environments.

If you love trivia or obscure yet interesting facts about the amazing world around us, you will probably enjoy this book and series. It makes spending the time in "the smallest room in the house" a lot more enjoyable and educational.
