    Its usually the midway catalogs I get each month... the manual makes its way between the nightstand and the loading bench.

    I usually flip through Handloader while dropping a charge. Lyman 49th or Hornady 7th makes their way in there every now and then.

    Nothing like a good read while annealing the toilet seat and priming the commode.

    I have my own bookcase behind the throne, keep my older reloading manuals there going back three decades. It's a great research facility.

    If I do then I tend to stay on the toilet till my legs go numb and fall down when I try to stand. Now I leave them next to my recliner to encourage myself to a more comfortable place to read.

    I prefer "Cartridges of the World" - love to read about funky old cartridges I've never heard of.

    I too have a complete gun library in the can, but know too well long articles can result in blown hemis, roids that is haha. Actually no self respecting reloader would have a can without proper literary materials to improve his mind!

    I keep one of the old versions of the Speer book upstairs is the living portion of the house, and it sometimes finds its way into the bathroom. All the more recent ones are in the basement where my reloading bench is.

    I occasionally bring Lyman's 49th or a binder filled with printouts from Hodgdon's online data in with me. Currently both are on the headboard of my bed.

    I only have one thing on my mind in the bath-room and it isn`t reading a manual. :)

    I tend to rotate manuals in the Throne Room, depending on what rifle I'm currently working up loads for. The "book bag" right now has Lyman #46, 3 copies of Rifleman, and the Brownell's and Midway master catalogs....

    Mathematically speaking the amount of magazines in ones bathroom is inversely proportionate to daily fiber intake ....

    I don't keep any manuals in there, but they do occasionally make the trek with me. Several months worth of American Rifleman and reloading catalogs/flyers in there, though.
