    The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a tight-knit group of loyal and skilled writers, researchers, and editors who have been working as a team for years. The BRI understands the habits of a very special marketThrone Sittersand devotes itself to providing amazing facts and conversation pieces.
    Happy birthday, Uncle John! This 20th anniversary edition proves that some things do get better with age. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers’ Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). Uncle John’s Triumphant 20th Bathroom Reader is jam-packed with 600 pages of all-new articles (as usual, divided by length for your sitting convenience). In what other single book could you find such a lively mix of surprising trivia, strange lawsuits, dumb crooks, origins of everyday things, forgotten history, quirky quotations, and wacky wordplay? Uncle John rules the world of information and humor, so get ready to be thoroughly entertained as you read about:

    The incredible (edible) history of bread
    The secret congressional bomb shelter
    Farts in the news
    The history of the aloha shirt
    The real Zorro
    The worst city in America
    How your taste buds work
    It’s the Peanuts story, Charlie Brown
    And much, much more!

      This bathroom reader is full of new material, unlike some of the other editions. Fascinating subjects, great trivia and a pretty big book. I read it from cover to cover and thought it was one of the better bathroom readers I've read.
