A good friend of mine told me about a series of books. These are generically called Uncle John's Bathroom Readers. These books are devoted to singular topics and are suitable for bathroom reading. An interesting aspect of these books is that the Tables of Contents are arranged not on order of chapters of the book but by categories and topics.

This book "plunges" into Hollywood and the film industry (yes, it is a pun and I believe it is intended). This book has small excerpts about films, trivial details that make one's love of the cinema much more arcane, and features about major people and events in the cinema.

The book has many of the box office bloopers and errors. An interesting one is in Star Wars where Luke Skywalker calls Princess Leia "Carrie". Carrie Fischer played the role of Princess Leia. Funny no one ever caught that slip in post-production, or even in filming.

Several games also test the reader's knowledge of film, the movies, and the cinema. You may enjoy "Taglines of Terror", where you match the horror film with its tagline.

If you are looking for new material to read in the privacy of your privy, this book will keep you entertained as you take care of business. And once you have finished reading it, there are more Uncle John's Bathroom Readers available for your enjoyment and edification.
