I enjoy being in a pool or a lake or the ocean because of that floaty feel but you don't get that if you're sitting on the floor in a tub (basically sitting on the floor doesn't seem especially comfortable to me). Not trying to be edgy or start a circlejerk, just don't understand.

for some people, reading on the john is the only place where they'll have a bit of privacy, especially to read trash.

have been to some aristocratic manors in Europe, and all the best houses had floor-to-ceiling stacks of books in their admittedly primitive shitters.

no doubt you want a Jap-style automatic cyborg jacks that will sing you the fucking book too while you're at it.

Seconding this anon, they're comfy as fuck, convenient, the backlit ones (technically frontlit, that's why they don't get glary in the sun) especially. Load em up with a tonne of pirated ebooks if you're so inclined. Sure it's not as comfy as a physical book but it's much more convenient.
