Aussie, according to your profile you are happiest when A) reading and B) doing art.. So what's you issue with shitting and reading at the same time?

I love the Bathroom Readers... I learn so much from them!! lol
And, seriosly, unheigenic?? You don't know the first thing about all the microscopic junk and it's weird traveling ways. Reading on the pot ain't gunna make a damn bit of difference, especially if you wash your hands.

50 it's not unhygienic if you read, put the book down, wipe, wash your hands, and pick it back up. Don't deviate from that order and you're fine. I don't have a habit of reading OTHER people's bathroom books, though (I've been to houses where they actually have a little stand or bin with magazines in them)...there's no way of knowing how they've been...um...handled...

Reading on the toilet is fun! It's better than just sitting there for 5 minutes doing nothing. OP, I can almost guarantee that your crush does it too. It's 100% normal.

68 - The bathroom readers are broken up into short pieces anyone can read on the toilet! I've finished all my bathroom readers, so right now I've got Shakespeare's poems in there. At least two sonnets a trip! Why waste those few minutes?

2 - I have/do use TP bookmarks. You can use anything, really, and that happens to be really convenient at times lol. I thought I was the only one I was actually surprised when I read this FML lol

I would rather someone use a clean sheet of toilet paper to mark a page than to have them dog ear a page in the book. In my opinion it is improper handling of a book to dog ear the pages or snap the spine. All that stuff does is speed up the destruction of a perfectly awesome thing. In the end you wind up with a book that has a bunch of bent up pages and you still need a bookmark to read it again because the pages are messed up from before.


That's not a good habit to have if you read in the bathroom because you end up having to bookmark your page quite often and the book will end up a bit messed up. Dog-earing it is only okay if the book is already that way and its your own book, or if it belongs to someone who is okay with you doing that. Otherwise, nothing wrong with a bit of TP. Its quick and easy, I even used it once when I wasn't bathroom reading. Those bookmarks made especially to hold your place in a book are usually all laminated and slippery. TP never slips out from between your pages. Besides, TP as a bookmark is soooo not embarrassing. But I get it, people sometimes get paranoid when they have a crush.

I'm guessing because of the poop particles that are everywhere when you're pooping? I however don't see a problem with it although I don't read in the bathroom, I like sitting somewhere comfortable, my dad does read magazines and the newspaper in the bathroom.


People get their poop particles everywhere when they fart. The particles go up people's noses and they breathe it in. Its gross, but its easier to not think about than to have panic attacks every time you're around poop particles.

I don't see it as a big deal. For one, we all do it. And second that doesn't really prove you read on the toilet. Maybe you were in a rush and didn't have a bookmark so you used a tissue. I've done that once.

Most people do that. It's not like the toilet paper was used. For all he knows, you could have taken it from the spare roll you keep in your cupboard. Your crush doesn't seem very crush-worthy.
