Who does it then? I can't ablute without something to read. Currently switching twixt Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks (prolly dishonours the subject matter reading it on the loo) & Stasiland which is equally fascinating

This morning:

John Lydon: "Rotten - No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs"

Fascinating reading!

Yup, reading on the bog, you can't whack it with a big stick. Of course, the ladies disaprove in the strongest terms. They can't seem to grasp the notion of a relaxing poo with a copy of When Saturday Comes. I can sometimes get through three complete articles!!

Of course, there are certain magazines that one should not even attempt to read whilst one is making stool...

I beg to differ Balix, Mrs 401 is one for reading upon the throne.

I, on the other hand, simply wish to get all motions passed as quickly as possible.

For me an opportunity to get some revision done (Except AirLaw otherwise me ZzZzZ - Health and Safety you know)... :O :ok:

A game boy is kept in our throne room and helps to pass the time away.... We don't have books, might forget yourself at the end and rip a couple of pages out!!!!

24th May 2005, 11:05
We have this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0898159393/qid=1116932709/sr=1-6/ref=sr_1_11_6/202-1654294-4043819) on the top of the loo for any visitors to read..

T2 of the Times if in the morning, current bed-side book at tother sessions. Current book is "The Dig Tree" about the Burke & Wills expedition to explore the GAFA from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Absolutely mind-blowing what these Victorian fellas got up to and how they survived (or not in the case of these two...)

At present
"Moules County Maps The North of England" resides beside the pot.
One likes maps.
And in case of a emergency running out of paper situation, one can get a dozen dumps out of a good Ordinance survey Map.

Bl:mad:dy marvellous, somebody sat on the sh:mad:er looking at a map that shows my house. :yuk:

One did recently read an entertaining volume of travel disasters entitled 'No shitting in the toilet'. Well, good enough for Waterstones, good enough for on here:rolleyes:

24th May 2005, 12:04
A question for all you loo readers then, do you dump then read as the smell permiates the air (if so, do you like the smell of shit?) do you read then dump, or does it take so long to dump that you read at the same time?
If the latter is the case then I suspect a higher fibre intake is required.

From this post you will deduce that I am a dump and go type.

Dump then read... can't make out the words while squinting :}

A good buddy of mine has wallpapered his loo with 250,000 scale charts. It looks fantastic.

Nav on the lav I suppose :O

This is the Loo Read, famous for

"Take a dump on the wild side"?

Oh the joys of wireless internet.

Mate back in Blighty has his collection of FHM next to the toilet........in case he runs out of roll.
