Calling all bathroom readers!

At last...Here it is...The book you've been waiting for! No more frantic searches at the last minute for that perfect magazine article. No agonizing choices between light reading and the serious stuff. This little volume has it all: Entertainment, humor, education, trivia, science, history, pop culture...and more! And it's even divided by length--you can spend a minute with the Quickies, relax with Normal-length articles, or really get comfortable with Long Items.

With Uncle John's Bathroom reader strategically placed in your home, you'll settle in happily and read about:

The Origin of Common Words and Phrases

The Story behind "Louie, Louie"

Deadly curses and Strange Deaths

Politics in The Wizard of Oz

The origin of Silly Putty

Elvis's Visit to the FBI

The Fabulous 60's

And a host of great bathroom topics!

Synopsis:

Finally, here's a book written especially to be read in the bathroom. Full of famous quotes, sick jokes, America's greatest rumors, brain teasers, fun facts, trivia, short stories and other gems to make the bathroom stay a pleasant one.

About the Author

In 1987, Uncle John found himself stranded on his throne with nothing to read. Thats when he came up with the idea to launch a series of trivia books specifically tailored toward his fellow bathroom readers. He gathered together the best trivia writers he could find and charged them with the task of combing the worlds of science, history, sports, politics, and pop culture to compile dozens of interesting articles that could be absorbed in just a few minutes. Now, with more than ten million books in print and a membership base topping 40,000 loyal readers, the movement begat by Uncle John is stronger than ever.
