    Poor Delivery

    My item was late in arriving. Item was about to be declared "lost in transit" but it finally arrived at the 11th hour. I had ordered this item a couple of weeks before Christmas which should have been plenty of time.

    Definitely Lives Up to the Title!

    I love Uncle John's bathroom readers; this one is the latest I've read and it is as entertaining as all the rest. I always read the little blurbs at the bottom of each page first, love the funny ones especially. Uncle John's provides a lot of food for thought; I've used it many times to start or contribute to conversations. Now I have friends borrowing past editions and ordering their own. Thanks, Uncle John - keep those readers coming!

    Easy Throne Room Reading

    Was tired of the same old magazines and newspapers that cluttered the...ahem...throne room. This engrossing book is great reading and good source of trivia for that man in your life that has everything.

    Education in the Loo!

    I keep an Uncle John's in all three bathrooms in my house and keep up with the new ones as they come out. It's amazing how I can amaze friends with fascinating bits of trivia, all thanks to Uncle John. The only downside is that occasionally we have hired help that spend too much time in the john because they get caught up in the Uncle John's and won't come out. Keep the good times rolling! Or flowing, whatever the case may be.
