    I love these kind of books! This book gives short snip-its of information on a variety of subjects including: biographies, sports, history, etc. It's the kind of book you can read just a little at a time. I guess that's why it's a bathroom book, though I never used it for that specifically. :)

    i've lost feeling in my legs reading this tome. (and endured much pounding on the bathroom door.)

    I can't remember where I got this book years ago, but it did sit in my bathroom. Basically this book has 2 page summaries of all kinds of classic books. So the reader is able to read an entire summary of a book in "one sitting". I really enjoyed it, and many of the reviews piqued my curiosity enough to read them, but even for the ones I didn't read it did help me gain a minor understanding of the books.

    Can't say I read every single 2 page synopsis, but of the many I did read I feel I got a fantastic reading experience! I liked reading about some of the books I probably will never want to read, but knowing something about the book helps broaden my overall appreciation for literature. Some of what I read covered books I have previously read and it was nice to read a quick "refresher" on some of the classics and Shakespeare.

    Though I doubt I'll ever read everything in this book (because I tend to just skip around from section to section rather than reading it front to back), I have read several entries in the book and it's inspired me to want to read more. So, I suppose it's worth mentioning.

    Loved these bathroom books! I bought all three volumes and they were in my bathrooms for a long long time. I learned a lot about so many things! Poetry, famous people, sports, quotes, classics and best-sellers...

    Not nearly as funny as the other series, but well worth the time. Contains summaries of classics and trendy business, philosophy, nonfics. Plenty of quotes and other nuggets of information

    Intriguing little stories and factoids for those special moments. It was like kindling knowledge for bigger thoughts.

    One of the few purchases I have made from the bookstore where I work. I do, indeed, keep it in the water closet.
