    Bathroom Books Are Great!!

    especially when it's useless trivia. I was at my moms when I first picked this one up and couldn't get enough. I had to get it for myself.

    So interesting!

    If you are someone who loves little known facts, trivia, and pop culture history, then you will LOVE this book and the others in the series. You will soon want to read them ALL! The person who thought of these books is brilliant.
