I love Reader's Digest and keep it in the bathroom for some great reading while doing other things. :) Sometime I am glad I was sitting down at the time I read a few of the sometime very funny jokes. If you know what I mean. What stories or jokes come to mind when you think about Reader's Digest?

This is too funny. We keep a Reader's Digest on the back of the potty too! Everyone enjoys reading it, even the 2 year old who only pretends to go potty and can't read. I have tried to give her a children's book instead and she only wants the Reader's Digest. haha My favorite page is the quoteable quotes. It is the first thing I look for each time we get a new copy. My dad always renews our subscription for Christmas. He said when he was in high school it was required reading for English class.

Kids rock. They do some of the funniest things. I just goes to show how much they pick up on what we do over what we say. I have a lot of good reading and great laughs with them. It's the first thing I look for at the doctors office.

Have you ever read a copy of Uncle John's Big Bathroom Reader? There are several versions available. I have given away several copies as gifts and people always thank me repeatedly throughout the year.

I don't like reading and I am a slow reader but I would not be where I am today without forcing myself to read and learn more. Plus it is nice to just pick up a book that has short stories and lots of funny jokes.

I like the bits in Reader's Digest when they test your knowledge of words. I don't usually score too badly on that. I can't remember jokes so I can't tell any here, but one story that comes to mind is something I read a few years ago about a mountaineer who had a very large rock fall on him and he had to cut off his own arm with a pocket knife to free himself. I admire people with spirit and courage like that.

I think it was quite a blunt knife and he did it inbetween passing out - so it must've taken him an age to do. Amazing.
