Our “Regular” Readers Rave!

“I love these books! I read them on my commute bus in the morning, and during my lunch hour. They are definitely not just for the bathroom.”

—Alison G.

“Uncle John's Bathroom Readers are the entire reason I started collecting rubber ducks. I have over seventy.”

—Sara C.

“I LOVE your books, my whole family are avid BRI readers. Thanks!”

—Shannon D.

“My friend in school was reading Bathroom Readers, so then I bought a couple, and now my mom says I'm just threatening her with my intelligence.”

—Chase O.

“If I walk out of ‘the John' still reading ‘the John,' does that make me weird or is that normal???”

—Lisandro G.

“I have learned so much from you guys. Thank you for being amazing!”

—Reece T.

“I just happened to see one of these sitting on the back of a friend's toilet one time eight years ago. Instead of reading the shampoo bottle, I picked this up. I have been hooked ever since.”

“Long live Uncle John!”

—Denis S.
