I enjoy Bathroom Readers because they're entertaining and educational. I had no idea, for instance, that Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan performed in vaudeville. Likewise, I knew little about the Hawaiian island of Niihau until I read #24's informative two-parter of that odd little place. And, while I've heard of President Nixon's "Enemies List," I hadn't seen it till I found UNCLE JOHN'S 24-KARAT BATHROOM READER seven-page article on it.
In any case, trivia buffs now have the annual fix and it was worth the wait. Lots of info, lots of fun. Recommended.
*NOTE* Per Uncle Johns BRI Facebook page, there is a production issue with the cover stock and paper on this issue that allows it to bend and curl more than usual. My cover curls as do the pages. BRI said they're working on a fix.
