    What's In Your Bathroom Library?




    Advertisements
    You know you do it, we all do -- so what do you read when you are In There? Do you keep a store of reading matter within easy reach?

    I have a large magazine holder thing next to the Facility, which currently contains:

    The current issue of the Atlantic Monthly

    The March 2009 issue of National Geographic

    "The Most of S. J. Perelman," a Modern Library compliation of the humorist's best short pieces.

    Broadcasting magazine for October 15, 1937

    Broadcast Advertising magazine for March 1932

    The 1958 Information Please Almanac

    A 1930's religious pamphlet called "Universal War Near," which prophesies the coming destruction of all civilization and has a delightfully lurid cover.

    A 1935 Johnson Smith Co. novelty catalogue

    A Radio Yesteryear catalogue of old radio recordings c. 1975

    Architectural Digest (the only issue I ever bought, from 1987), two recent Vanity Fair and a few recent J. Peterman Catalogues.
    Those are all for guests, of course...

    My bathroom library changes from time to time. I always try to keep a book in there but they always end up back in my room. I guess I have Mother to thank for that.
    The longest book I've had in the bathroom was The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath.

    I now realise that perhaps you mean bathroom as in the WC?

    Years ago, when I lived in a share house we bought a magazine rack specifically to put next to the toilet & very useful it was too.

    At a guess, there will be several classic car magazines & a copy of "A cast of killers" by Sidney Kirkpatrick (a book based on the 1922 William Desmond Taylor murder).

    Does that mean Sylvia Plath gives you the poops?

    Yes, I have posted to FL from the can.
    Simplicity never goes out of style, and never comes into fashion.

    That conjures up a disturbing mental image.

    Every time you post in the "what are you listening to?" thread I'm going to think of your last post here...

    Same here. In fact, that's where I keep my netbook.

    At the moment, the collected works of Philo, which I can never seem to finish, a Scottish Rite newletter, and a Cabela's catalog.

    I took this to mean bathroom as in the room in which you wash and not the loo.
