Portable Press is the publisher of the Uncle John's Bathroom Reader series—the longest-running, most popular series of its kind. With more than seven million books sold and tens of thousands of Bathroom Reader Institute members globally, the series is an undisputable success. Since 1988, the staff and authors who create the Uncle John's series (including Uncle John himself!) have faithfully worked to serve those who read in the bathroom. The Uncle John's books are full of fun and weird facts - the books include tales of dumb crooks, strange lawsuits, ironic deaths, forgotten history, amazing luck, odd superstitions, crazy conspiracies, spaced-out sports, word origins, movie bloopers, and much, much more.
