Jim is reading paper books. We didn't have to wait for his new glasses; his vision has cleared up -- literally -- enough that he can read paper books again. It's a huge relief, like the best Christmas present ever, almost three weeks early.
He's currently working on Bujold's latest, Captain Vorpatril's Alliance, which I already read and enjoyed a lot. Jim sits in his chair reading and periodically laughs or snorts or snickers or whatever, because Bujold is great at inserting a steady stream of low level humor into her writing, even when the book isn't a Humor Book. I'm on the couch doing whatever on my laptop and enjoying his enjoyment, because damn, he can read paper books again. :)
Awesome stuff, had to share.
