    Bathroom Reader is a pleasure to read any where

    I LOVE this book, It has every thing one wants to know. It has some interesting stuff that would definitely come in handy during any conversation. I have read the entire book and still love reading it. The BRI (Bathroom Readers Institute) has definitly come out with a book that will show a change in your knowledge once you have read the first article.

    A way to make a necessity more enjoyable

    If you like trivia, fun facts and some out and out good reading, this book is for you. It covers everything from dumb criminals to dumb politicians, skyscrapers, animals, word origins and more. A fun read and some interesting information.
