the book

I got myself an ipad about two weeks ago.  I watched Patrick with his, and I guessed it would be good for my half-paralysis.  After one day, I realized it was not good; it was superb.  I now carry it with me everywhere, taking notes, look stuff up on wikipedia, and (especially) reading books.

People ask me, is it worth it?  And it definitely is: for me.  But I'm an one-handed person, and it's a godsend for me.  In fact, I've taken to calling it "The Book", which Velma, at least, understands.

I've read, in the last few days, a complete book, my first since the stroke (I think; my memory is shot still): Right Ho, Jeeves.  It's a reread -- in fact, it's my favorite Wodehouse, and I was astonished to find it's out of print [edit: I meant "out of copyright". duh] -- and so's my second read I've reading now, The Sea Fairies by L. Frank Baum.

I'm happy (as Velma implied before).

I presume you got it from Project Gutenberg. They have an impressive stack of older Wodehouses there. (Considering you're also reading Baum, I'll guess that you did go to PG, but JUST IN CASE, I hereby mention it.)
