Here is an exciting chance to own the very first Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader For Kids Only! in a hardcover edition with all new illustrations!

Curious young readers will learn about the real Dr. Seuss, baseball superstitions, the birth of The Simpsons, how carnival games are rigged, the history of dining on scorpions and tarantulas, shocking truths about thunder and lightning, and disgusting bodily functions like ear wax production and digestion (and why they’re important), and much, much more..

Guest Post:

As a kid, what types of trivia would have fascinated you most? The disgusting bodily function type trivia, the scientific facts, or the weird or obscure factoids?

All three, really. Who doesn’t like to make their parents squirm when you tell them, “Hey Mom. Did you know that you fart a pint of gas every day?” We love science trivia because it helps us understand the world around us, and obscure factoids because they make you sound like a genius. Plus I love learning history facts teachers never tells you. And sports trivia. (Did you know that there are cockroach races in Australia every year?)

Author Bio:

The life of Gordon “Uncle John” Javna, editor-in-chief and publisher of the Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader series, reads like one of his books. There’s a lot of fun, intriguing—often odd—information lurking around every corner. He went to art school, and then went on to become a musician, real-estate developer, writer, restaurateur, president of a pre-school, brew pub owner, and editor—not all at once, mind you, but he has been all of these things.
Eventually, though, he realized that because of his love of fascinating facts (and being a bathroom reader himself), he was naturally suited, perhaps even destined, to bring the joy of trivia to the world in a fun, informative way. He assumed the pseudonym Uncle John for the Bathroom Reader series and since then, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has become the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the publishing industry. To date, there are more than 15 million Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers in print and his fanatical flock of followers span from Australia to the United Kingdom and beyond.
Guided by their obsession with unusual trivia, amazing origins, and forgotten history, Gordon “Uncle John” Javna and his staff at the Bathroom Readers’ Institute have made Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers a must-have for book and gift stores worldwide for over two decades. Gordon continues to expand his porcelain province from his throne room in Ashland, Oregon.
