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.

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.

Seabiscuit (unfinished)
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.

You must have a big bathroom.

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.

What's that 'Diary of a Provincial Lady'. Looks from cover like novel, maybe 1920's social humor, maybe British? Do you recommend?

Not a thing. I have an Attack Killer Kitty that follows me like a shadow. She makes sure I don’t 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.

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.

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.
