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...
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.
That sounds like a shitty s- *gets ran over by the whole FML community*
cool story..t.p being used as a bookmark..hmmm what did u wipe your ass with?
