Format: Paperback
This book is packed cover to cover with fun, useless drivel. You learn about everything under the sun and actually appreciate the knowledge you are obtaining. An easy read that will have you taking it everywhere with you, this book is a must-have.

Admit it already...... when you are in the bathroom, you want something to read to help pass the time. Instead of reading the latest issue of Reader's Digest, why not learn a bunch of interesting and funny, if not just downright useless, facts?
The third edition of the popular Uncle John's Bathroom Reader brings you more (and more and more and more) of interesting tidbits and stories to help you pass the time. From a list of film terms (an oater is a western) to an inside look at the musical television group The Monkees, this book has a seemingly never ending supply of information to pass along to you. There's even an entire story about the origins of toilet paper (i.e. the Sears catalog).
There is one warning that should be mentioned here: This 3rd edition is full of spelling and grammatical word errors. Though it doesn't change how much fun this book is to read (and use), it is kind of disappointing to see so many mistakes.

What can I say about educating yourself in the "NECESSARY ROOM"? I own a number of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers and this installment is NO disappointment. Why should anyone waste time just sitting there waiting for something to happen [or to stop happening] when you can enrich your mind? There is something for anyone and everyone in this book. Innumerable topics are investigated and their secrets revealed. There are short articles, more extensive articles, and delightful teeny bits of information at the bottom of each page. I highly endorse this book! Uncle John and the Bathroom Readers Institute have done it again!
