Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Extraordinary Book of Facts combines the most intriguing, enlightening material from nine previous Bathroom Reader favorites into one concise volume. Flush with delightfully useless — and sometimes even useful — information about sports, movies, music, politics, American and world history, and much more, the book is the most extensive reference guide in the series to date. Contained within this handy, portable tome are the fascinating narratives, terrific trivia, and easy-to-read lists that fans have come to delight in, as well as quotes, facts, findings, and historical tidbits. Weird and wonderful factoid footers on the bottom of each page are perfect for super-quick trips, while quizzes and puzzles enliven lengthier stays. Arranged for simple and speedy reference, the book is the perfect companion for trivia buffs and knowledge junkies who need a quick, fun read not just “at the office,” but in airports, waiting rooms, while traveling, or for any other moments that would otherwise be wasted.

Synopsis:

Bordering its trading partner, Canada, on the north, Minnesota is the 12th-largest state in the USA. It's no wonder that Minnesota, nicknamed Land of 10,000 Lakes, leads the nation in per capita sales of fishing licenses, with 15,000 streams and over 5,400 fishable lakes. Uncle John is rightly enamored of a state with the world's only two-story outhouse, and while all states have official flowers and birds, Minnesota has a state beverage (milk) and muffin (blueberry). What other state has spawned such disparate personalities as J. Paul Getty, Bob Dylan, and Jesse Ventura? Its people are just one interesting facet of a state where travelers can find such fascinating curiosities as the SPAM Museum or the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices. Over 300 pages of interesting facts and amusing trivia provide armchair travelers with a glimpse into Minnesota's people, places, and stunning natural wonders.
