    Volume one of Churchill's "The Second World War." All six turned up as first editions at my local library's Saturday morning fundraising book cellar. I got them all for $16.

    From the same source, "On The Road to Tara," by Aljean Harmitz, 1996. The making of Gone With the Wnd.

    And always a stack of Peterman catalogs full of crap I can't afford.

    What is in my bathroom library is whatever single volume I happen to be perusing at the time.

    Right now it's Bloom County: Happy Trails.

    I'm lucky that I have a small study with a cosy chair to read in. Would never even think about reading while on the can! Just how constipated are you folk? Maybe time to see your MDs! :)

    I don't understand how people *don't* read on the can -- what else is there to look at? It helps, of course, to be a speedreader -- three minutes is plenty of time to read a chapter in about any book, or an article in the Atlantic Monthly. And if the article is by Caitlin Flanagan, it even saves the cost of toilet paper.
