I've stolen all the books

An Essex man was in trouble this morning when he ran out of new things to read on the toilet.

Gary Powell of Chelmsford told TheSpoof.com, "I needed to pay a visit and was looking all over for something to read. I then realised I'd read everything in the house already. I must admit I should have been more organised. Over the past few weeks I'd been reading the same car mag and last night it was the inlay of the new Roxette CD".

"I was nearly 'touching cloth' this morning so I had to make do with the ingredients on a shampoo bottle" he added.

His wife Ange Powell told TheSpoof.com "I've been trying to get Gary to put up a bookshelf in there for months but he hasn't done it yet".

Mr Powell promised to open up the box of self-assembly shelving and have a read of the instructions "probably a few hours after lunch".
