They say kitchens sell houses, and that may be true to a certain extent, but there is one room in your home that will get more attention than any other space — your bathroom. Of course, everybody needs to sleep, but they can do that on the couch, in the bed, or on the floor. Everybody needs to eat, but today, that can happen in the living room or in the back seat of your car if you're busy with after-school activities.
One thing will always remain the same: Your porcelain throne is a place where you can make peace with life, no matter how hectic it gets outside your bathroom walls. It doesn't matter if you're entertaining guests or fulfilling the missions of your bathroom space — when it comes down to it, someone who enters those walls will be looking for a little downtime.
Since the time you spend in the bathroom is undetermined, make sure you have some entertainment on hand. Having a few great books standing by can make all the difference. Here are a few recommended bathroom reads:

Nobody questions toilet paper's importance, but this book enables you to turn it from a functional product of design to a work of art.
