I like to read in the bathroom. I find it relaxing and quiet in there, that I can pretty much gobble up information without getting overloaded. How about you? Do you do bathroom reading?

This is a really good discussion,because reading is really important when it comes to everyday life,because it can help you learn new things,and broaden your mind so you think outside the box,and it is also a good source of fun and enjoyment especially when you are extremely bored,and it can help pass the time on those extremely cold and rainy days where you do not want to leave the house for any reason whatsoever,and I am sure that different people have different genres and authors that they like to read,and I am sure there are people who like reading while in the bathroom,and then I am sure there are people who do not like reading while in the bathroom,and I can understand that everyone is different,so no two people think the same since everyone has different opinions,ideas,and views,and when it comes to me I do like reading,even though I prefer my fiance to read to me because it makes it easier for me to focus on the book,and remember what is happening in the book since I have a short attention span,and when it comes to the bathroom I do not read books,but I do like to do word search puzzles because they are fun,and they help me not get too bored lol,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

I think that Crossword puzzles are easier to concentrate in the bathroom, that or word searches they are also fun to do, and can be real time passers whilst in the bathroom, or anywhere really.

Personally I think crosswords are harder to do because they require more thought since you actually have to think about the words,at least with word searches you have the words you just have to find them which they are a good way to pass the time anywhere because they keep your mind busy,I love you with all my heart and soul,have a great day,good luck with all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting Baby.

I did toilet reading, LOL. I don't have bathtub in my house. Bathtub is not a culture in my country. Most people in my country do toilet reading.

I don't really read a lot lately but yes, it's nice to read a good book or a newpaper at the bathroom. It's so quiet and relaxing.

The bathroom is our favorite place to read, it's peaceful and a place where we are unlikely to be disturbed. I keep sudoko books in both our bathrooms and a variety of books to read, short story variety or magazines--Reader's Digest is one of the best magazines to keep in the bathroom. We refer to our bathrooms as the Library.

I almost always read in the bathroom. Depending on how long you're going to be in there, it's a great way to pass the time. Otherwise you're just sitting there waiting...

Usually when I am reading a book and have to go to the bathroom, I just bring along the book with me and I just go ahead on reading while inside the bathroom. I don't mind reading in the bathroom except maybe for the risk of getting my book wet since we don't have space for a small table or shelf to put the book on.

I place my books on top of the toily's tank to make sure they don't get wet. :)

I usually read magazines in the bathroom, not books. I don't want to get overloaded either, so I may read a few articles in the magazine and look at the pictures.

ohhh me too! I also get a better grasp of what I am reading while in the bathroom, it must be the silence and solitude thing that's going on in there. lol :D

I visit the bathroom for one reason only - well, two, the liquid reason and the solid reason! I can't understand people who read in there, but a lot of people do. My brother even has a magazine rack in his bathroom with a selection of reading matter for different tastes! My husband likes to take a crossword in with him. I love reading and I love crosswords, but for me, the bathroom isn't the right place for doing either.

I also find it weird to read in the bathroom. I see my niece read while in the bathroom. I ask them them what are their reasons? They like to make the time reading and utilize it. Especially when they are emptying their bowels. It put their smell away from it and focus from their reading. Anyway, they enjoy it and I am hook into it.

I have read in the bathroom in the past. I think more often then not though that I would be on the sink etc, sitting and reading. I have read whilst doing my business in the bathroom, but I think that it's much more comfortable if it's just going in there to have peace and quiet.

Instead of reading in the bathroom, I usually turn on my pocket radio and take it into the bathroom when I am using the bathroom. I love to listen to radio for news. Sometimes when I use the school toilet, I bring with a newspaper to read.

In our family, the bathroom is usually referred to as the reading room or the library.This is true in our children's families as well.

I usually don't read inside my bathroom. Mostly because I only visit that room to get myself ready to go out and stuff like that. I think reading is much better in my room, my school, or even the library. I don't own many books, so I read mostly at the library because it's really nice and quiet and the atmosphere seems very good for reading books without any distraction.
