What is your opinion if a person reads a novel in the toilet while she's doing her 'business'? Where is the best place you can read novels?

I have heard and seen many people have mini-libraries in toilet. This is because, they have some problem with digestion and find difficult bowel movement. There is nothing wrong. There are toilets designed which looks like middle class house.

yeah, you're right. For some people they have the patience to wait until their bowel movements have something to report out. But to me, I only go to the toilet if I really have to. Maybe because I'm not used to the habit. I've seen toilets like these too, but only on tv and the people could sit for one hour and sometimes more on the toilet! I wonder sometimes that they do have so much free time.

There are villas where both toilet and bath area are combined. But ofcourse one cannot read books while taking shower or bath. May be there can be some people reading some pages while in bathtub, to enable the perfumed soap to clean their skin!!!

Lol... I can envision the picture of someone (or you, in this case) reading while lying down in a bathtub. Hmmm... I do think this is one type of relaxation. I might do this in the future, I like the idea of reading while bathing in the tub, because we can actually soak for one hour and let the soap simmer into the skin!

I never read anything in the toilet because it just a moment and I want to concentration for my business.I likes to reading anywhere except toilet especially at my bed, my hall and also at the beach when I go for the picnic.

Calit! I sure have the same preference as you. The best place to read is on the bed and by the beach. Such a calm place and makes me able to enjoy the surrounding as well as absorb into the storyline of the book. Thanks for your opinion. Have a great day to you.

Toilet Reading - Learning to read on the toilet at an early age.
No problem with reading on the toilet I don't guess. I read in my bed before going to sleep or maybe a chair in front of the TV. no beaches near by so never read there. I always take my novels to Dr. appointments because the wait is so long I can almost finish the whole book. LOL

LOL... Actually I often wonder how can somebody read on the toilet. I feel like the book will get wet or something... LOL...that's my problem actually. And maybe the condition of my toilet doesn't permit me to put down the book on an appropriate place. I do not have the sitting down toilet, I am an Asian who use the type of most Asian still prefer.

The same goes for me. It is a habit reading while laying down and all that. But to do? It's our hobby, right... So just keep up the good work and no worries..

Well I guess some people take longer than others on the toilet so I guess it makes sense to read so you don't become too bored lol. My favorite spots to read are: at the beach, in the bathtub and curled up in bed before falling asleep.
