Uncle John's Fully Loaded 25th Anniversary Bathroom Reader - Bathroom Readers' Institute



Released October 23, 2012

Bathroom Reader

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader books have been a mainstay in many bathrooms for the past two decades. I know, I've visited many friends' and relatives' houses and found one of the books sitting near the toilet. That's what the books are for, informative, often humorous reading in the one place where you have all the quiet you need for reading.

Uncle John's Fully Loaded 25th Anniversary Bathroom Reader is the latest, lengthy collection of true stories, trivia, and facts you'll be able to tuck away. I learned a lot reading this book, and I spent a good portion of the time laughing out loud too. There is a ton of information presented. You can learn who was originally slated to star in the blockbuster Alien movie series that eventually starred Sigourney Weaver. Find out how many hairs are on the average human's body. Discover exactly how Apple got started and how much some of the companies earliest investors lost by backing out of a business model they felt was doomed to fail. Read stories about typos that truly changed the intention of headline stories. You'll also find current bloopers like Mitt Romney's "Amercia."

Each category has "short," "medium," and "long" stories so that you never have to leave a story unfinished. Topics range from Bathroom Lore and Stage and Screen to Forgotten History and Toys and Games. There are dozens of categories and topics.

This is a must-have and the perfect present for any teen, man, or woman. This is not a gender-specific book. It's a great addition to every bookshelf or bathroom. In fact, I think I'll be ordering a few copies to give to many of the people in my family who are hard to shop for.
