“Would it ever be acceptable to have a bookshelf in the bathroom? Or does that strike people as unhygienic”.

I think it is just tacky to have a book shelf (or magazine rack) in the bathroom. I am a bit Victorian about this. I accept that people do read in the bathroom, but I don’t want to be reminded of it when I use their bathroom.

Yeah, Ruthiella, I know. That's what I was thinking. I am somewhat of a tacky person (too cheap to be stylish, after all), so I wasn't bothered about that, but I have to admit I don't think I'd want to re-integrate books from the bathroom shelf back into my regular shelves.

EVERY room in my house has a book in it much to the dismay of my husband. I think they are decorative. (Even my sister, who is an interior designer, has lots of reading material in her bathrooms. Of course, it is all sophisticated!) For a while, one of my bathrooms had all the "dog" books, but I've been trying to mix it up. I try to think about a guest who is taking a bath (?) and forgot to bring something to read!

Maybe because I love to stay home, but this is my favorite quote: "Changing out of my pyjamas feels like an accomplishment." This kind of describes my weekends.

I had to look again at the cover. I at first thought it was some sort of dessert - looked like meringue pie - but I now see the arms and pillow.

I have not read this book, but so far my favorite thing is the subject headings:

Leve, Ariel -- Psychology.
Women -- Psychology.

Putting in a request as we speak. . . .

There's a subject heading for negativism? I am ALL over that. Thanks for the tip!
