Atomic Lobster by Tim Dorsey.

Dorsey writes in the "crazy Florida people" genre, and his recurring character is Serge A. Storms, who is a serial killer of assholes and douchebags. His sidekick is a guy named Coleman, who always has a drink or a joint in his hand. Fun to drink rum or beer while reading.

"The Doors of Perception" - Aldous Huxley

The author's own account of his experience with the drug mescalin. Sort of like a sophisticated version of a drunk blog post...

A couple of books related to the books I'm writing now. (It's my hobby; no one would ever publish me. Some grandmas knit...)
And while Grumpy reads the paper and rants at me about everything in it that pisses him off, I'm leafing through a big, full color book about the making of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Found it in perfect condition, in a thrift shop, for a pittance. Wow, I am a big Gene Wilder fan.

The Dirt by Motly Crew. Good book lot of nastyness, but more more drugs and sex than drink. Except Mick Mars he's a boozaholick extrodinare.

This board finally got me to read Bukowski (yeah, I was young and naive to have not read him before)

Started with Post Office, then Factotum, now Women. Also got Portions from a Wine Stained Notebook that I read on the crapper.

Also got the complete works of Emerson that I read on the other crapper.

A few books that I would recommend as good lavatory reads:

An Incomplete Education whatever edition is up today. usually you can find this on the remainder table of a Borders of B&N.

Any of the "A/The Dictionary/Encyclopedia of ..." volumes. My two favorties were The Encyclopedia of Battles znd Dictionary of Theories.
“Süßen witwe Mutter-Hosen — kommst du hier mit mein knackenpfeife schnell, oder Ich zeige Ihnen mein Zuhälter Hand!”

"I am going to pistol-whip the next person who says 'shenanigans' "

"Rectum? It nearly killed him!"
