Overview


Uncle John's Bathroom Reader is plunging into another superb state. This time around, it's New Jersey, the Garden State, long proud of its traditions, its history, and its accent. From Jersey tomatoes and blueberries, the Tigers of Princeton and the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers, the songs of the Boss and the Chairman of the Board, the Garden State has long provided a treasure trove of exceptional sons and daughters, legends and folklore, amazing facts and figures-not to mention a wealth of jokes. Whether going "down the shore," getting lost in the Pine Barrens, dining on great cuisine in Newark's Ironbound district, or driving down the Turnpike, traveling around New Jersey captures the imagination. Interesting and entertaining articles cover tons of little-known facts like:

* Known as the "Pathway of the Revolution," New Jersey was the site of over 100 battles during the War for Independence.

* Mud from a secret South Jersey riverbank rubs the sheen off of every new baseball used in the Major League.

* A gas station in Englewood sports a plaque saying "It All Started Right Here." What started there? Frank Sinatra's career. The station sits on the site of the Rustic Cabin where he worked as a singing waiter.

Editorial Reviews

It was inevitable that Uncle John's bathroom scholars would soon discover the fertile fields of New Jersey. For hunters of factoids, urban legends, and jokes, the Garden State offers a treasure trove of possibilities. This 320-page extravaganza takes you to places where even the Turnpike does not go. Addictive trivia and tons of fun.
