The Bathroom

This is where we keep (and will review) "Bathroom Books". You know, those ubiquitous tomes of obscure and esoteric knowledge that aren't serious reading but lots of fun anyhow? (Trivia, get it?) kinkajou

Book Reviews

Vixens of Vinyl book cover

Vixens of Vinyl
the Alluring Ladies of Vintage Album Covers
Benjamin Darling
Chronicle Books 2001
ISBN# 0-8118-3134-5

This is a small format photo book of those "racy" album covers from the 50s and 60s; you know the ones your parents (or grandparents) didn't want you looking at. Quaintly erotic and nostalgic.  Really entertaining 

Everything You Pretend to Know About Food book cover

Everything You Pretend to Know About Food
(And are Afraid Someone Will Ask)
Nancy Rommelmann        
a Penguin Book 1998
ISBN# 1-14-026373-X

"A culinary compendium to season your gastronomical wisdom along with your cuisine". A fairly useful book actually, it gives good solid answers to a lot of fashionable food questions. It also debunks myths, gives preparation and serving suggestions, and explains a lot of those obscure foodie terms. Enjoy!

Mouthing Off
A Book of Rock & Roll Quotes
John D. Luerssen        
the Telegraph Company 2002
ISBN# 1930606028

Just like it says - quotes from Rock stars written by a "Rock Journalist".  Most of the 'stars' are contemporary and the quotes cover a variety of subjects from "First Concert" to "Punker Than Thou" and "9.11.2001". Easy to read in small bits. What I learned from this book: Marilyn Manson is not as psycho as most people think.
