    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

    What's in *your* Bathroom Library?

    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?
    We're all mad here...

    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?

    My laptop.

    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.
