Nothing. Never in there long enough to warrant bringing in entertainment.

I actually have all three columns of "The Great American Bathroom Book." However, I prefer to pass the time (among other things) browsing through the "Information Please Almanac." I get a new one every year. 

But, what I wan to know is why they call it a "loo?"

From: http://kottke.org/05/02/loo-etymology

"When people flung their potty waste out of the window, they would shout "Gardez l'eau" [gar-day low]. That's French for "watch out for the water". We probably get the word "loo" from this expression, although some people think it comes from "Room 100" which is what European people used to call the bathroom."

I like listening to classics, particularly Russian classics, on audio while taking long walks in the woods in winter.  Fresh air and adrenalin aids in mental digestion.  In the 'loo' you need something that's amusing for 5 minutes but doesn't have a very complicated plot.
