Uncle John's Bathroom Readers are number one on my Christmas wish list. Uncle John's Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader, seventeenth in the series, contains all the factoids, useless but fun to know information, funny stories, and stupid criminals, dumb cops, obtuse lawyer anecdotes that make the books in this series a great gift for any circumstance. You never get bored reading Uncle John's Bathroom Reader and it is the perfect night table book for the insomniac as there are short one-page reads, longer two or three pagers and the heavy-duty five page stories.
Uncle John's Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader includes a fun series of articles about kung fu movies, famous hoaxes and April Fool's pranks, the always popular Creative Teaching awards given to teachers whose idea of proper classroom behavior or content is highly questionable. Word lovers have come to appreciate Uncle John's forays into the misuse of language, be it Flubbed Headlines, Limericks, and articles about the world's worst poet, worst novelist, or the best selling book of all times. Always fun to read is the Word Origins section
One of the great things about an Uncle John's Bathroom Reader is it is definitely a book you keep and go to from time to time for a quick read or two. This is the perfect airport book as there are a lot of different articles so you are always entertained and they are big enough to take care of even the longest of flight delays. If you know someone who is going to be in the hospital for a while, an Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, including Slightly Irregular, is always an appreciated gift for the same reasons.
Uncle John's Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader is simply wonderful.
