Toilets, Bathtubs, Sinks, and Sewers: A History of the Bathroom

I’m a goal-setter and as 2012 loomed I realized I was in danger of not achieving my goal of embracing ebooks. So, a couple of week ago I seriously kicked into high gear and here’s my update:  my editor at Holt/Macmillan (publisher of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony: A Friendship That Changed the World) confirmed that two of my other books we did together–Adventurous Women: Eight True Stories About Women Who Made a Difference and Corpses, Coffins, and Crypts: A History of Burial— will be available in multiple ebook formats by Feb/March. Today I self-published an updated ebook edition of the first nonfiction book I wrote, Toilets, Bathtubs, Sinks, and Sewers: A History of the Bathroom. Originally published in 1994, I hadn’t read Toilets in years, and was delighted to find pieces of women’s history in it.  It’s available in multiple ebook formats, readable on virtually any ebook reading device, at Of course, I remain a lover of everything about print books–the look, feel, smell, etc.–but ebooks offer convenience, plus a way for out-of-print books like “Toilets” to come to life again.
