We often hear that we spend a third of our lives sleeping. I have no idea how much time we spend in the bathroom. I’m not even going to hazard a guess. It doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you enjoy the time you spend in there. Spa-like steam showers, beautiful artwork, and books.
Yes, books. Who doesn’t read or do crossword puzzles in the bathroom? So, for all of us who prefer to use those minutes to stretch our imaginations in one way or another, I’ve compiled a list of 5 books that are sure to keep you otherwise occupied in that most private of spaces.
1. Bathroom: Guest Book Knock Knock.
This is a very fancy-looking journal that will definitely surprise. It’s full of fun writing prompts, doodle space, and blank pages allowing visitors to record their thoughts and have fun while in your bathroom.
2. Bathroom Graffiti Mark Ferem.
The author here is an experienced photojournalist who decided to turn to documenting the graffiti we see in bathrooms. What kind of thoughts to people have when the bathroom stall door is closed and locked? Ferem reveals it all.
3. Fierce Pajamas The New Yorker.
This collection of short and humorous stories and sketches will have you giggling out loud.
4. What’s In A Name Woody Vincent.
Haven’t you always wanted to know the stories behind some of the most famous companies? Who invented the Ponzi scheme? Where did the name Coca-Cola come from? You may not spend a lot of time in the bathroom, but there’s no reason why you can’t expand your knowledge while you’re there.
5. Toilet Paper Origami On A Roll: Decorative Folds and Flourishes for Over-The-Top Hospitality Linda Wright.
This one is just too much fun. Reading in the bathroom is great. But, sometimes, you just want to do something with your hands. The best part is that all you need to create beautiful artwork is right there at your disposal … toilet paper!
