Loo Read

Since no one is doing the honours, let me kick off with the loo read thread. Let this be a kind of internal tag, so all of you have to post on this.
1. Most common loo read: Computer magazines courtesy brother.
2. Weirdest loo read: galley proofs of my own novel.
3. Most abused loo read: An archie comics digest belonging to a cousin which was ruthlessly sacrificed in the absence of water/paper.
4. Least appreciated loo read: National Geographic Magazine. To be found in loos all over the world, but in most cases containing images of such ferocity as to cause permanent constipation.

It's perfectly possible to read in an eastern style loo, in fact you get to rest your chin comfortably on your knees while doing so. But you must have a convenient low shelf to put the book on when you've finished and require...uh...a helping hand. also do NOT attempt to pick the book up until you've washed and DRIED your hands.

My loo has a makeshift bookshelf on a windowsill. I read whatever I find there, unless it's early morning, then i'm too blurred to do anything but play Snake.

My loo has a little cupboard where I currently have a Tinkle comic(no idea who it belongs to,certainly not mine!),Irving Stone's 'Lust for Life',Ray Bradbury's 'Martian Chronicles'.
Its also pretty nice doing the crossword in the loo-dont know how common it is though.With other folks I mean.

the best loo collection i've seen has to be srin's(mom's)...but usually when u read stuff like racy thrillers in the loo u end up sitting and reading long after the er, actual business is over...end end up with cramps

crapping requires utmost concentration,i devote undivided attention to it,no books or magazines to distract me...
it might also be due to the fact that ma will immerse whatever book i dare to take into the loo with me in the ganges without further ado...
