Just wondering, what are people reading while they take a load off these days? On the back of my toilet, I've got the Hockey News, Maxim, a Hewlett Packard Catalogue, and a Victorias Secret Catalogue for those 'special' moments in the bathroom...

I have a copy of The Portable Curmudgeon on top of the commode. And I play electronic Yahtzee while spending any appreciable time...

I take a crap and get off, I just can't think of a worse place to sit a read.

Not to mention the people that do just that and stay there for 30 minutes, stopping others from using it for what its built for!!

I read aviation-related stuff on the toilet, too.

It's either Airliner World when I get the magazine, or else some old in-flight magazines. This past month I've been reading Malta this Month (Air Malta), CSA Review (Czech Airlines), Ulisse (Alitalia) and Fischer Air Report (Fischer Air). The latter has been in my bathroom for around a week now and I almost know the duty free prices by heart!

I just grab something off my bookshelf before entering the bathroom at home...doesnt matter to me as long as I have something...in those really urgent cases I also have been known to read the labels on cans of Lysol, deodorant, and toothpaste...but only when I dont have time to get into my room first...

When I was young I would sit there forever before, during and after taking a crap looking at the Janes Aircraft Encyclopedia. I had that book memorized.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Now days I take a crap and go cause I don't care to wallow in a cloud of stench!

I usually look at Airways, or some other Aviation related material. I try to imagine I am in an Airplane lavatory. That somehow allows the crap to flow.

An eclectic compendium, including:

Various out of date copies of The Economist.
The Dell Business catalogue.
The Complete 'Yes Minister' Diaries.
'Boo Hoo' - the story of boo.com from startup to collapse.
Icon by Frederick Forsyth.
The United Kingdom Highway Code.
The Driving Theory Test Questions and Answers.
The double-CD 'Clubbed', mixed by Judge Jules. (Not good reading material....although we have a CD Player in the bathroom, this is the only CD!)
The Offical Show Guide to the British International Motor Show 2002.
Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Probably some parts of todays papers, together with a couple of the sections of the Sundays'.

All in all, what you'd expect from a typical student bathroom! I must get around to changing it at some point....

I normally attempt to get out of there as quick as possible Smile/happy/getting dizzy. But, if I'm "delayed" for some reason, I flip through Airways, Private Pilot, or Maxim.

I got Hulk Hogan's biography for Christmas, every night that week I read it, I finished the book in a week. I often times would sit on the toliet just to read it. It's pretty interesting stuff on how the WWF/WWE works.

I have a subscription to Airways since 1997 and I get 1 magazine a month, so I have a TON of them next to the can.

I was going to ridicule you Sccutler for reading the FAR/AIM in the bathroom, until I walked past and saw that I had a copy in my throne room as well.

Good way to keep up to date!  Smile
