    Bathroom FUN!!

    It really doesn't get any better than this, folks. I bought this book a year ago, almost as a joke - thinking I would never read it. In two days, I had read the entire book, and purchased a second Bathroom Reader! This is amazing stuff here. It makes the day fly by when reading it. I wish I could give it six stars. Yes, it's that incredible. Buy yours today!!

    Excellent Nonsense Book!

    This book is a great way to pass time. I read it every day in study hall and it is most humorous. It had everything from famous last words to 15 minutes of fame. It talks about this guy who tied 48 balloons to his chair and then he went up. When he was really far up in the sky he got scared and pulled out a pellet gun he brought up. He dropped the pellet gun and then had to wait for them to pop but themselves....
