You mean, the probiotics?
Nothing, I never understood spending more than a couple of minutes on my "throne" and never have.
I guess I'm not in there long enough to study Calculus. ;0)
That's true...magazines are ideal for that situation...steal a glance at a few pages before the thighs fall asleep... Lol!
I to heard it is not good to sit for an excessive amount of time. I do my reading on a nice cushy chair, maybe something icy cold 'on the rocks'along side.
That's quite a library, may I suggest Metamucil, or a big bowl of Raisin Bran?
Ann Coulter's Godless
half dozen Erma Bombecks
How the Irish saved civilization
They went that-a-way (malcolm forbes on how famous people died)
the liberal establishment
two dozen car and motorcycle magazines
and three puzzle books.
Gosh that's a mess.
Ronnie & Nancy - Their Path To the White House - 1911-1980, E=Einstein, Public Enemies, The Proper Car and Feeding of Marriage, various car and linux publications. If you want a list of books that are in the general vacinity that's too long a list to post here.
pat only drags one thing in our bathroom...
the local rag...the news press! it's the only
thing worthy of reading in the facility. ;)
yup, that would be our throne reading rag.... ugh!
***What's in your Reading Room?*****
Pretty mundane stuff..
That's it, just your average normal guy stuff
In my bathroom right now there is
Lighthouses Around the World
100 Years of Harley Davidson
Mothergoose and Grimm
Gone With the Wind
War and Peace
Popular Science Magazine
JP cycles motorcycle parts catalog
Only the koran, which is put to use page by page as needed.
Hobby magazines! :-)
The pages are not soft enough to wipe with.
Sheesh. You must have a big bathroom.
For whatever it's worth, just for fun. In my bathroom right now, the reading material is as follows (from memory; there's a few that I forget). I like to read in the tub.
Ghost Map (about the cholera epidemic in 1855 London)
The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis
Book of Far Side cartoons
Biography of Virginia Woolf
That's all I remember.
Now THAT should be a bumper sticker, but you'd take a chance on a jihad against you and your car.
Actually Grape Nuts have more fiber.
"The Search For Cosmic Justice," by Thomas Sowell. At the rate I'm going, I'm not going to be finished with it before I die...
I have a laptop so I can FReep when I'm doing #2.
Just a long vanity counter and lots of drawers.
The other bathrooms in the house have some magazine racks, but need the counter space for shampoo, toothpaste, blow dryers, cosmetics and other bathroomly stuff.
Uh, gee EEE, thanks for the visual.
What's that 'Diary of a Provincial Lady'. Looks from cover like novel, maybe 1920's social humor, maybe British? Do you recommend?
Now none of us know where your pings have been...
Not a thing. I have an Attack Killer Kitty that follows me like a shadow. She makes sure I dont bother with reading in there.
I do have several hundred books in my living room, but when reading I give the Killer Kitty a pile of cat nip.
Movie books and the latest catalogs from Sweetwater and Musician's Friend.
LOL! I was just giving you guys some s--t!
Thanks for that reminder - I need to buy Lileks' Interior Desecrations! (And for the thread, there are garden design and home decorating magazines in one bathroom, and they're just put there to decorate the room rather than to be read!)
So far it's hilarious! It was published in 1930, and it's quite dry and, well, British.
"How To Get That Horseshoe-Shaped Mark Off The Butt For Dummies".
That series is awesome! We have loads of them, they are in the bathroom, the bedroom, the kitchen and the car. I am geting one to keep at work. Love to read them!
My reading spot is the tub. Currently there is Cesar's Way by Cesar Millan, Brother Odd, by Dean Koontz, The Kite Runner, by Khalid Hosseini, The Source, by James Michner and In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, By Jean Shepphard. I nearly froze to death reading the Kite Runner. I finally had to get out of the tub, put on my jammies, and finish the book in the linving room.
Of coure it is the word of Allah! It is Shi'ite!
