Shelves: recommended
To be honest, before I saw this book in the bookstore the day I was buying it, I never heard anything about it at all. I never knew it was such a big hype. What made me buy this book initially is the design which caught my eyes immediately; I mean, a toilet suction pump as a bookmark? How genius is that? I just love the whole idea of this book. Original, creative and unique.

The contents include (very) interesting random facts, trivia and riddles. The language used is quite humorous and relaxing.

Oh what haven't I learned from this book, and the others in the series...they are chock full of information. I run a weekly trivia game, and so many of my questions come from this book. I have 5 in my house now, and I've read them all through at elast 2 times. Time for a new one.

Yet another fantastic Bathroom Reader. If I can ever pick only five or ten (or whatever number) of books I can keep with me, I think I would pick Uncle John's Bathroom Readers because I can read them over and over again.

I loved reading Becca's book on the toilet. Humorous, and you might just learn something, or spend more time than you meant to on the pot.
The entire Uncle John series is addicting and has single-handedly lead to many incidents of me "holding up the line" to the bathroom.

I always enjoy these books. They are interesting and entertaining, and they can be read in or out of the bathroom.
