Who's portable reader is keeping them company in the Bathroom???

I just thought it would be funny to bring this up considering so many people like to read while on the bowl.

This is the one place where p-books will prevail! The tens of books on the reader just won't do the trick, once the paper runs out

"Tens of books on the reader" -- I've got over 350 on mine, all in the internal memory of the device without a memory card.

So I'm set even if the paper runs out and there's nobody home to run to the store and buy some more! I'll be able to wait!

With such a stoic approach you need a small fridge in the bathroom, so that you don't starve, before the rescue comes. Or an industrial grade one plus an SD card if you live in a remote place.

I tried reading in the bathroom

with a regular paperback book, but after one page, the book became pretty much unreadable due to the force of the water from the shower. I bought two copies of the same book, thinking perhaps I had done something wrong. (It came with no directions.) However, the same thing happened.

I decided to try an electronic Reader, and boy! has my life changed!

Now, with the Sony Reader, I'm a convert forever. I can take my Reader into the bathroom, prepare my salad while taking a shower, and also read a few screens while cutting up tomatoes and lettuce. I've installed a disposal in the shower to take care of the extra pieces of food. (Careful, toe!)

I contacted Sony for my endorsement, but they have not yet returned my call.

Thank you,
Don


P.S.: This idea was taken from "Seinfeld."

Mine accompanies me into the throne room regularly, however I haven't tried it in the actual shower ... nor do I think I shall ... not even with a ziplock.

Sorry about that it was two in the morning and I was at work barely awake. By the time I realized my error I was too tired to try and figure out how to correct it, but thanks for the heads up.

When I run out of magazines, I admit my Reader does make an appearance.

Not just a woman thing, I too stay only as long as I need. Also, how do you clean the reader afterward (other than take it in the shower with you?)

I'm one for sometimes reading on the throne. And what I do sometimes is keep magazines in there so there's something to read. It's a good way to catch up.
