    I spent most of this story laughing. Pete's a salesman who needs to sell his special privies to the ladies of The Women's Library Association. Through her descriptions and use of dialect, Aubrey Wynne does an excellent job of taking her reader to the America of the 1800's. Set during a time when toilets were quite different than the ones we have today, the stories the ladies share about the their bathroom experiences were hysterical and cringe worthy (in a funny way). This is one story everyone in the family can read and enjoy.

    Cute story with some humorous moments but not hugely funny for me overall, more mildly amusing.I am VERY glad though I never had to use any of these Privies.Everyone's sense of humor is different so go ahead and read it for yourself, you may think different from me :).

    Pete’s Mighty Purty Privies is a cute humorous short story about a salesman trying to sell his outhouses to the ladies of the Women’s Library Association. He presents the many styles/grades to choose from, and as he goes through the features of each model the ladies have their own sidesplitting stories to tell in regard to their personal outhouse experiences. If you’re looking for a light read full of laughs this is the story for you.

    This book is an absolute gem. I am old enough to remember privies and they, and their styles and looks, were mighty important. I had a real "belly" laugh as I read the story. Where in the world did Aubrey Wynne get the imaginative and comical idea for this? Have a read, and have a laugh. You'll be glad you did. Can't wait to see what this author will come up with next.Sherry Merry

    A funny, little tale concerning the wonderful world of outhouses! Read as Pete talks a room full of country women into the outhouse of their dreams! I found myself laughing at all the amenities he planned to furnish with each upgrade! This short story will leave with a greater appreciation of your own bathrooms today!

    Such a light hearted, adorably funny story about a man facing a group of women - and not just any group of women but a hall filled to the rim of upset ladies about a crappy situation- literally! That's enough to make any man sweat! If you have a few minutes and want to laugh and snicker this short story is for you.

    This is a wonderful, folksy story with some laugh-out-loud moments. Pete is quite a character.(Somewhat of a used car salesman before the advent of the automobile.) I really loved the Thomas Jefferson reference, and his appeal to the women’s patriotism. Very fun!

    Anybody who has ever used an outhouse (we had one on our family farm growing up) will get a kick out of this story!

    This story combined humor with a bit of interesting outhouse trivia. I laughed right up until the end. Clever and well-written.

    I give this a 4.5 stars.The ladies of Pottstown assembled in the library for their monthly library meeting. The talk quickly turned to privies instead of books. Pete waits nervously to be introduced on the sidelines. He gives himself a pep talk, knowing he has a good product. Because he’s such a good salesman he turns a simple sales pitch into an interesting tale of bathroom history.Ms. Wynne has taken historical facts and turned them into a humorous short story. She’s done her research and everything you’d want to know about outhouse construction is given in full detail. Through her main character, Pete McNutt, the reader learns the basics of 1890s bathroom etiquette. I guess you could say the author used old time bathroom humor to make a history lesson interesting. If you liked to know more, join the women of Pottstown, Michigan to hear Pete’s presentation.

    This could be a scene right out of Garrison Keillor's Lake Woebegon radio show, especially with the addition of different voices for characters and sound effects. It's that funny. Outhouse salesman Pete finds himself at a meeting of the Women's Library Association, selling his line of "mighty purty privies". What follows is a discourse from the bottom of the line "Bachelor" model way up to the "Thomas Jefferson" Presidential Privy, packed with hilarious anecdotes from the ladies in attendance. Not only will your sides hurt from laughing after reading this, you'll also have a whole new appreciation for indoor plumbing! I would highly recommend this book. I won it in an online BookRhythm event, and now will be looking up more of this author's works..

    This story had me laughing. A funny, little story about the wonderful funny world of outhouses! Pete gets invited to a meeting of The Women's Library Association to give a presentation on Pete’s Mighty Purty Privies and the women seemed very interested. Aubrey did an awesome job with this book. I Loved it!!

    Anyone who has ever used an outhouse (we had one on our family farm, growing up) will get an enormous kick out of this story! I always came away with a new appreciation for indoor plumbing after a trip to the farm. This giggle-inducing short story brought back some memories!

    Lighthearted story about a nervous Privy salesman, going before a meeting of the lady's library association. Once he gets going, he's fine. The cutest parts are the ladies telling their privy horror stories. Extremely short story, like 14 pages or so. It's....cute.

    I received a free copy through Netgalley, in return for an honest review.The introductory text at Netgalley already stated that this book was very short. It was even shorter than I expected though, with only 15 pages. I have laughed my head of about some anecdotes. This sales-talk of a privet-salesman is made very, very funny by what his audience tells in return. Still, I find head and tail missing in this booklet. Wouldn't it have been nice to know if Pete sells something in the end, and how his audience reacts to their new privets, for example? Is he top-seller, or just starting up? I can imagine women coming back to him with complaints, or noticing that their new outhouse isn't that different from what they had, deliveries of the free year's worth paper gone wrong etc. All in all a very nice and quick read in between longer books, very well written. And although I have been warned that is was short, I mostly find it too short anyway, just because I'd loved to have more, ánd because it didn't feel finished.

    This won't take you long to read, but encapsulates a good deal of information about outhouses and privies. A salesman in the 1890s in Michigan hopes to boost his sale of privies by addressing a book club meeting full of ladies. The topic is delicate but several cheeky asides are contributed by the audience. Not much actually happens; but the tale is a lesson in how to use odd research which you may have come across while looking for background to a longer story. Characters seem quite realistic and we get a good feel for the times. We can also have a chuckle, which is a nice way to start a Sunday morning. Minor punctuation quibble: when a person speaks over more than one paragraph, each paragraph indicates at the start that the person is still speaking by opening quotes, which are not closed until the person stops speaking. Thus:"My basic model is..."Now to my better model..."Finally my top model privy. Ladies, what do you think?"

    A short, funnystory concerning the wonderful world of privies, or what most of us might call outhouses. Pete is a salesman who is trying to sell souped up privies to a group of ladies from the Women's Library Association. He describes the various levels of privie right up to the Presidential Model, of course they all come with a certain number of magazines. The woman share some of their own hilarious Privy stories. I laughed at all the amenities he planned to add with each upgrade. This is a light read that will leave anyone who reads it laughing.I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A laugh out loud short story. Pete McNutt is an outhouse salesman. He is starting a new business and needs to develop interest in his business. His partner convinces him to go speak to the Woman's Association. Pete is able to work his magic and has these ladies listening to his every word. Pete is able to make a boring old outhouse seem like it is fit for a king. A truly funny short story!

    Privies!Loved it! Fun all the way through. Much fancier outhouses than any I have seen. Truly humorous but believable. I'd buy the deluxe model, for sure!

    I don’t know about you, but as a kid I always heard the stories about the days of outhouses. It goes along with the stories of, “When I was your age I walked five miles in the snow to school.” right? As a kid, I rolled my eyes and silently willed whomever it was to hurry along with their story so I could go about whatever shenanigans I was planning. Now as an adult, I find myself doing it too! It’s also a lot more humorous now. Even though I don’t have any true good old days stories, I enjoy hearing them. Pete sure does know his stuff too by golly! He does what any good salesman does when looking to sell his product. Why, he goes to the women folk of course! After all, isn’t it the wives who hold the purse strings?In this cute and entertaining story, you get to follow along with the musings of these fine, respectable ladies as they listen intently. Who would know how many different ways there really is to build a privy? You can go straight out primitive with a shack and a whole in the ground. Or you can get you a real nice building that matches your whole house! I loved the bantering between them all as they contemplated the merits of Pete’s Privies. I have to say, if this was still a time of outdoor facilities, I’d fancy one of those deluxe models with the matching curtains and paint!I loved this, and it was great. Ironically, this would make a good bathroom reader! Quick, cute and straight to the point! A quick read for a quick visit!5 out of 5 Stars!

    I haven’t read many short stories in stand-alone fashion but that doesn’t diminish that this is the best one I have ever read! It is laugh out loud funny!I disturbed a corporate lunch room with my guffaws while reading the issues that revolve around finding a decent place to do your business in rural America in the late 19th century. Hilarious and light hearted. Beautifully written. Characters are well developed in just a few lines.The author has a gift for clarity and humor and I can’t recommend this short story enough. Hilarious! Brilliant!My Rating: 5+ starsThis review first appeared:

    This was a darling story. There are some things that are becoming relics of the past, and outhouses are one of those things. Pete has a rather convincing presentation for the ladies. Who knew outhouses came with so many options? This will make you chuckle often. A nostalgic look at something that used to be so common.

    Very cute.This is a very funny short story about rural Michigan before indoor plumbing. It pokes fun at our propensity for trying to outdo the neighbors. Short, sweet and funny. What else could you ask for?

    This short story was cute, but I didn't really connect with it. I expected a lot of laughs based on the reviews. Perhaps a book about the salesman would be more my style. I've never read anything else by the author, so I don't know if this is representative of her work.
