PoopFiction Picks the Perfect Prose For Your Bathroom Break

There are at least a dozen apps that can help you find your next read when you're on the go, and now there's a site that can help you find a story while you're on the porcelain throne.

PoopFiction is a mobile site that promises to find you a story that will last as long as your time on the toilet. The stories are pulled from Project Gutenberg, and are all in the public domain, and the site offers a simple interface with only a few options:

This is a fun idea, but is it really going to see much use?

I mean, a dedicated reader will either have a book, ereader, smartphone, or another reading device when they're going in to the restroom anyway (unless they're the sanitary types that leave the gadgets outside). Any reading device will have a cornucopia of reading material (and possibly also other distractions like Twitter and Facebook), so there's not much use for a site like PoopFiction.

About Nate Hoffelder (11598 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
