Question Do you read in the Bathroom?

Hi. As an avid reader and with exams and a strict mother, I spend large amounts of time in the bathroom to read. Do you read in the bathroom as well (not necessarily for the same reasons, although a strict spouse could replace a strict mother) ? Do you think it's weird to read in the bathroom, unaware that you are done with your business?

Let's see, shall we?

Do I read in the bathroom? Of course. Doesn't everyone?

I also read in the tub. reading on the pot makes my legs fall asleep. the ex would wander off to the throne with a book and an hour or so later I'd realize he had never returned


my dad always swore that "pot" reading gave him the 'rhoids

Since not a single negative result has come up, I believe I am asking in the wrong place. Mobileread is meant for all of us who read in the bathroom. The people who would answer no are evidently not members of this site.

when i was a child i would lock myself in the bathroom for the sole reason of reading undisturbed (i didn't have my own bedroom and "personal space" was largely an unknown concept). if i had a bathtub, i would read in the bath, however i have only a shower. so i voted "no, but i think it's normal". as for other options, i have far more comfortable places to sit in my house, and i really don't want to spend that much time in there. it's the smallest room in the house and the tile floor is *cold*.

Oh, Labib, I'm sorry..........

what I meant was there were 6 responses, and 6 positive votes........hence everyone voted the same!

You are doing fine.
