    That's precisely my thought! I am a smoker, but don't smoke inside my home. Whenever I step out for a smoke I take my book with me.

    Sometimes I make the mistake of bringing something really good, then it takes me three months to finish a book!

    As for what I typically read, anything I can get my hands on: shampoo bottle, toothpaste tube, whatever's in reach.

    Currently it's Meet Me in the Green Glen, by Robert Penn Warren.

    A newspaper, a magazine or the post. That's it.

    I blame my sister for this one. When I was a kid, the only way I could get away from her to read was to hide in the bathroom. Now, it's like second nature to have something in there. My dad always had the Reader's Digest and/or a crossword puzzle. I think I learned more vocabulary in the "john" when I was a kid than I did in school.:D

    Toilet Reads

    Do you read in the toilet?Books or magazines?

    I absolutly need to read in there,comics are best(in my parents places)catalogues are interesting(specialy office material and furnitures).

    In my house we now keep two Arabic-French and Arabic English dictionary,as well as 4 guide books about Marrakech and Morocco at hand.They do.

    I keep a rack of old magazines within easy reach if it becomes necessary. They're mostly issues of Entertainment Weekly.

    I always read on the toilet. I take whatever is nearby in. Sometimes it's a novel, a magazine, or even People Stylewatch!

    I don't read, I'm never in there long enough to need a book.

    It pleases me to know I am not the only one who occasionally reaches for the nearest deodorant can/bubble bath/ shampoo to read the labels, I thought it was just me!

    Definitly not. Dolly and Landslide.

    They should print short stories and poemes on toilet papper.But maybe we would feel ashamed and not use it then.Or toilet papper with a selection of very bad prose,Dan brown,John Ringo,Terry goodkind,Paolo Cuelho,Mein kampf,...

    Hahaha. Hell no. Being in Korea drives me nuts. When I go to my in-laws' and have no English labels to read nor a book I lose it.

    It's all about preparing yourself for the long haul and taking a novel in!
