    Do You Read On The Loo?

    Just because I'm bored, I got to wondering...do you lot read on the loo too? & if so, what do you read? Books, magazines, comics...

    I remember my old man was so bad, I got him a book actually called 'Spending time on the loo', which was a collection of useless & little known facts (I believe it had the length of Vaul's member in it), so you get the 'useless & little known' bit

    And if you are a (water) closet bookworm...don't do it! You'll give yourself Emma Freuds!

    Dont normally stretch the process out that long.

    But in the event of prolonged occupation, and there not being anyone around I can open the door and watch the TV in the front room, bliss.

    I do tend to use my mobile phone and my PDA (connected to net via bluetooth) whilst on the bog. Can be rather handy if Im taking my time after a curry.

    I think of "TERRIBLY CONTRIVED JOKES" on the loo...................
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    Actually I DO read on the loo; why only the other day I revisited that modern classic "perforation.paper.perforation.paper.perforation.paper.perforation.paper.perforation.paper.perforati on.paper.perforation.paper.perforation.paper.perforation.paper."

    Truly a masterpiece

    i've never understood how people can read on the loo! you're there to do one thing, it really doesnt take long! and if it takes you long enough to do a crossword, read a magazine or book, then you didnt really need in the first place! Stop wasting your time and just get on with it! bloomin heck!

    my mum has a "special" roll of toiler paper with miniature crosswords printed on alternate sheets....a pen hangs from the holder on a bit of string...the other alternate sheets ahve word searches on.

    It's for when important people visit!!!! She's a nutter though.

    I simply dont understand why people read or do crosswords on the loo.

    Apart from anything I'd not want to read/hold the book after someone else has sat readig it on the throne. its does nowt for me I can tell you.
