We've been telling my mother-in-law about Project Gutenberg for years. It's an amazing resource, after all, and we've donated money and everything. She likes classic novels, and this might be an incentive for her to get an e-book or a Kindle, which would make reading a lot easier for her. Her vision is bad enough that normal paperback print is difficult for her.

And she's computer literate enough that she could use it.

Yesterday, she emailed [livejournal.com profile] jonbaker all about this WONDERFUL website with THOUSANDS of books, all for FREE. And it's NOT a hoax because she knows someone who has used it. And she's passing it on to us.


This is just typical parent behavior, right?

I have to say how great, how wonderful, how amazing my mother and stepfather are.

Not only were they willing to have me borrow one of their cars indefinitely, they going to take *both* cars to Brooklyn so I wouldn't have to go to New Jersey, and then drive back in one. They're *still* willing to do that if I needed the car.

And Lenny offered to do this as soon as he heard my in-laws needed us. Before he spoke to my mother. And these are 45 minute drives each way. If needed, they'd jump in their cars *now*. I'm so glad they don't have to, of course.

I have a wonderful family.
