_ The Ha Ha by Dave King
About a guy with a disability whose female friend goes into rehab leaving her son with him - he has multiple disabilities as a result of a war injury and is mute. I really like the way the main character is portrayed so far - he's active and engaging. My reading of this was interrupted by my day job (da nerve) but I intend to get back to it this weekend.
You can get used copies of this book very reasonably over at Amazon - sadly it looks as though it did not sell well which is unfortunate because Dave King's writing is quite good.

I want to read Children of Hurin but it's not available on tape yet and audible.com and bookshare didn't have it last time I checked. I would use my headpointer but I have a lot of reading in my job right now so I think this is going to be au audio deal.
Assistive technology I use to read: headpointer and reading stand; books on tape from Recording for Blind and National Library for Blind; audible.com; bookshare.com
What are you reading - and if you have a disability - feel free to share the assistive technology you use to read.
