I totally understand that!!! I have a ten thousand dollar Viking Stove in the corner of my bedroom (which was supposed to be the new kitchen) that has been sitting there for 5 years!

and I know about the privacy issues... I used to be followed into the bathroom by the 2 kids that were my own, occasionally a variety of neighborhood kids, and anywhere from 3 to 8 Newfies. and it was a SMALL bathroom!

Almost every male I know takes reading material with them to the bathroom. Usually a newspaper or magazine. Since this is a reader forum, I thought I'ed find out if anyone read books in there and if any women did also, since they spend the longest amount of time in bathrooms.

Well, that might be so, but it's hard to read while you're drying your hair or putting on your make-up. Just thinking about the serious curling iron burns I could suffer, if I were trying to read at the same time! I spend more time in the bathroom washing my face, brushing my teeth, not to mention cleaning it! I for one don't have a big comfy chair in my bathroom (my preferred location for reading)! A big whirlpool in a box, but no big comfy chair!

I never got the multi-tasking gene that most moms seem to possess!

I kinda meant when you are using the bathroom as it was intended to be used, not "I'm putting on my face" projects. Personally, I think you ladies need an entirely separate room for that. Sorry to hear about your "tub in a box" problem. They are quite easy to install, if the prep work is done properly.

An entirely separate room WOULD be nice. I'll have to rethink our floorplan.

So, you think that women spend more time sitting on the porcelain throne than men do? I beg to differ.

What was this thread about again?

Well actually, he is right (Oh how that hurts to say). But unless you are able to do #1s standing you are spending more time sitting on the porcelain.

Leaving out the basic difference in plumbing (men vs. women), I still believe that women are out of there much quicker. (Personally I've got better things to do.) While I think men consider it a respite.

But then, maybe it's not a question of gender, but of age.

You may have a point for the single visits (I only spend extended time on the porcelain when at work - great way of procrastination). But overall us ladies do sit longer , just because we have to sit more.

And not to get into too much detail, but MOTH is usually fast. I found out the hard way why when I had to go after him - I was even faster out of there

I was just looking at the poll results from the June 2009 "Do you read in the bathroom?" thread.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48315

I'm definitely in the minority. So this discussion is for those who voted "Yes I do and I think it is normal."

If we were talking about reading in the tub, that might be an altogether different matter, but without the functioning whirlpool, I'll never know if it's a place I would enjoy reading. I look forward to the opportunity some day!

If I were into reading in the bathroom, it would probably be the same kind of stuff I like reading now, which would be mostly inspirational and some sci-fi for fun! How's that for a combination!

First off, let me say that I grew up in a house with three women. The only extended amount of time I got to spend in there was when I was doing repairs. Secondly, all the ads about regularity and constipation I see are aimed solely at women. I just asked if you all read in there.
