Uncle John's All-Purpose Extra Strength Bathroom Reader (Bathroom Readers)
Synopses & Reviews
Why is our lucky 13th edition All-Purpose? Uncle John himself explains: You can read this Bathroom Reader anywhere—in the obvious spot, in bed or, heck, by the pool or at work.” Why Extra-Strength? Because of the mountains of research gathered, you can guess where, by our crackpot I mean hotshot staff.” Yes, APES (as we affectionately call it at the BRI) is filled to the rim with more than 500 pages of amazing facts, quotes, history, myths, brain teasers, origins, celebrity gossip, and our powerful brand of uncanny” humor. Here are 13 reasons to read this book:
And much, much more!
The number 13 is lucky for the thousands of bathroom readers eagerly awaiting Uncle John's latest lighthearted collection of facts, quotes, history, science, word origins, pop culture, gossip, and "uncanny" humor. As always, the entries are organized by length to accommodate short, medium, and long visits, and the book features the popular "Extended Sitting Section" for a leg-numbing experience. Footers running on every page comprise a book-within-a-book of weird facts.
