In that case, I recommend pbooks, or maybe even a newspaper. I guess an ereader would not work out well.

Or you could try readable toilet paper, with each family member bringing their own. One perk: No more worries about losing your place.

Hmmmm.... Can you get anything with a place worth keeping in toilet paper form? And if you were having a bad toilet experience would you be able to read as fast as you used up the squares?

You're making me reconsider having my Loeb Library Classics reformatted as TP. The endnotes are a problem.

I suppose TP == endnotes, after a fashion.

I don't think I could EVER do that ... I would seriously want to disinfect that thing and well that wouldn't go over well.

I don't know many people that have reading material ... isn't that kind of awkward to go to someone else's house and camp out on the toilet? lol

My parents installed bookshelves in the bathroom that I shared with my brother, and stocked them with the Britannica Junior Encyclopedia. A through Z plus several yearbook updates! By the time I was 12 I'd read through them all several times!

There are times when it is nice to have some reading material in the bathroom. Sometimes it takes a while, and get gets dull. While I sometimes bring my e-reader in to the bathroom, I wouldn't choose to have an e-reader dedicated to the bathroom. But don't let me stop you.

I think paper is a good fit for something you keep in there. A magazine is a good choice. I like the "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader" series, which have a lot of very short articles. I also have a lot old collections of science fiction short stories, one of those works nicely.

Sometimes I'll read in the bathroom because I wake up in the middle of the night. I don't want to go downstairs, because if I do that, I'll never get back to bed, and I don't want to turn the light on in the bedroom.

If you do want to have a dedicated e-reader in the bathroom, load it up with a lot of short stories.

Surely there must be an app for that?

I put ever more accessible books in the bathroom in the hope my kids might start reading them. I know I'm fighting a losing battle though.

Personally I'd be more concerned about the sanitary condition of my toothbrush than that of an e-reader device. As I wear dentures now days I don't have to worry about that, but there have been some experiments done that point to contamination of toothbrushes even when a good distance from the toilet.

My toothbrush has a cover on it. As does my Nook Color.
