'Smallest Room' reading

Post by Bluebottle » Thu Mar 01, 2007 11:58 pm

As a bloke, I enjoy reading a good book whilst <ahem> otherwise occupied. However, my current stock of Clarksons has dwindled, and I'm looking for something similar. They're good cos they're full of short articles that you can easily digest in short spurts. If I go for my normal novel-type, I can get flushed away by the story, and not emerge for hours.

Reading on the bog is such a bloke thing! Me myself, I tend not to linger after the deed.
No one else does for that matter!

So I can only comment on boyfs reading matter. Comic strips like Calvin & Hobbs, Beau Peep, that sort of stuff.

Never done it, read in the small room, that is.

You go, you do your stuff, you leave.

Very punny post, Blueb.

Try a book of trivia or some such. What about the QI book? That's quite interesting.

MY mother-in-law to be got us a book specially designed for reading on the toilet. It's got a plastic cover and everything.

What's wrong with the newspaper that hangs from the string, apart from the fact it's a fews days out of date :lol:

Used to spend hours at my gran's, when we were kids, cutting up newspaper into little squares, and putting a piece of string through for hanging up in their outside loo. Loads 'o' fun. :D

At work (in a bank, in the 70's) we clerks built up a tremendous collection of Playboys, Penthouses, etc., in the gents' room until the cleaners complained and the managers (who had their own separate loo) ordered them removed...

After all these years of reading, why not try something more creative, like writing grafitti? :D

By the time you've rubbed it through your fingers to soften it up, you can't read it very well... :lol:

Mmmmm, nice. And the book with a plastic cover- what do you do when you've read it all? Then what?

One of my fave pubs has old newspapers stuck all over the walls and they are varnished or something to stop them getting picky (all with really zany stories). They play cds of comedy sketches through speakers in the cubicles. I love going to the loo in there PDT_017 Also totally unrelated to the topic, it has a lovely huge wodden decking patio with hundreds of heaters which is sooo cosy in the winter even though you are sat outside.

Well, currently I'cve taken to reading my newspaper in there. It's on of the heavyweights, so it takes a while...

Cool. As a completely feminine petite thing, I also read on the crapper. :wink:
