Books

The last few weeks has seen me devouring a number of novels to kill the monotony of being in hospital still. Latest estimates are mid January for going home ,when I hope to be able to swallow some soft foods. Books read include:

"Oranges are not the only fruit" by Janice Winterton
"Night Fire" by Ken Follett
"Eye of the Needle "
"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo " by Stieg Larsson

At the moment it takes about 3 days for a 560 page book. I am REALLY looking forward to going home when the ham radio blogging can resume.

Interestingly, I have read very few amateur radio books apart from  1 QST and a few RadComs and PWs. So far I have had visits  from around 45 people including a few local hams. My brother has raised over £1000 for the charity "Headway" as a result of my bleed on the brain.

you can do it Roger!
Sometimes brain injury diminishes motivation. That makes it extra tough. Be determined!
I just discovered your website and love it. Thanks so much.

I could never get into novels as a kid or story books some would call them, I would rush to the end to find out the outcome. Even today I can't read novels the nearest being would be someones Autobiography of which I will only pick out bits of interest. Now electronic books or magazines, I can read from cover to cover, but starting in reverse from the back cover to the front, prehaps its all because I am left handed?

Now Roger you have been REALLY missed on this blog, I and I guess a few others are really looking forward to your continuation for a long time to come!

Oh and I do read the Blog the correct way around? :-)

This one's a nice read. I just finished it. Free download in .txt, .pdf, .epub. etc. So it should work with your phone, tablet, or Ereader (get a Kindle Paperwhite).

The Sea Rovers (1906), Wilson, Rufus Rockwell, 1865-1949

It is a historical account in a lively story-telling style of the lives of seamen of various persuasions at the turn of the century.
