Literature in the Loo
In a recent comment box both Zinnia and Four D agreed that it is preferable to have reading material in the smallest room. Zinnia said:-
‘Books in the loo is an essential if you ask me. Poetry, mostly, or books of letters, or flash fiction, that kind of thing. Novels or books of longer stories or essays are a bad idea because if someone gets interested you can't get them out of there and end up with a crowd of people hopping up and down outside.’
I thought it would be interesting to see what others thought and I went to check what I had in there at present. Here’s what I found:-
1 Life’s little treasure book on Wisdom
2 Eats Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss
3 Beat Stress by Leslie Kenton
4 Selected poems by TS Elliot
5 Warning by Jenny Joseph
6 Best of Blogs by Peter Kuhns& Adrienne Crew
7 Escapes from Dartmoor Prison by Trevor James
8 How to take pictures by Kodak
9 Photographer’s Handbook by Michael Busselle and John Freeman
10 Quotations – Concise Dictionary.
Something for all tastes? What about you?
I am in the middle of reading ‘Charlotte Sometimes’ by Penelope Farmer and enjoying it (aka Granny P), and have saved ‘My Boy friend is a Twat’ by Zoë McCarthy to take away with me at the week-end.
