Uncle John's Fully Loaded 25th Anniversary Bathroom Reader by Bathroom Readers' Institute

4 stars
Format: ebook
608 pages
Publication by Portable Press

The Bathroom Reader turns 25! Uncle John is celebrating this historic milestone with his biggest all-new edition ever—more than 600 pages of absorbing material!

“Fully Loaded” is putting it mildly. This behemoth of a book is overflowing with incredible stories, surprising facts, weird news, little-known origins, forgotten history, fun wordplay, and everything else that millions of loyal fans have come to expect from the world’s best-selling bathroom reading series. As always, it’s divided by length: quickies for the reader on the go, medium-sized articles for those with a few minutes to spare, and extra-long pieces for those truly leg-numbing experiences. Here are just a few of the hundreds of topics loaded into this edition of America’s favorite “on the go” source of fascinating information:
- Real Life Superheroes
- Big Fat Nothing: the Story of Zero
- The Strange Fate of Eben Myers, the “Radium Man”
- When Authors Attack (Each Other)
- How to Talk Like a Bowler
- First Date . . . Last Date
- The Worst Business Decision Ever

My Review:
This was the first time that I have read a Bathroom Reader book and I have to say I found it quite enjoyable.  There was a plethora of fun and interesting facts that kept me entertained.  This would be perfect for a family party or a random road trip to keep everyone entertained along the way. 

Fast paced and an easy read.  The book is also well-organized and broken up into sections with fun tidbits in between.
