Just finished Uncle John's All-Purpose Extra Strength Bathroom Reader.

Just started Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader.

The Uncle John's series of Bathroom Readers are awesome! Normally I don't like to read books, but I made an exception for these. They are filled with trivia, wordplay, quizzes, short stories, and much more. The perfect reading when you're on the throne...or not!

Do I sound like a commercial? :P
No, I like women.

"A Salty Piece Of Land" By Jimmy Buffett. A book for @ home in my down time.

"Smart Couples Finish Rich" By David Bach. Another @ home book.

"The Illiad" by Homer. A book for the night shifts.

"The Odyssey" By Homer. Another book for my night shifts.

"The Greek Myths" both book 1 & 2 By Robert Graves. They're my bathroom readers.

I've been a fan of the Greek Myths for a long time. I believe there is lots to learn from the past...
