Thanks so much for the books. I started reading one as soon as I got it and I’m already a third of the way through. I’m enjoying it very much.
My injury was really my own fault. When I play basketball, I sometimes get a little too enthusiastic, and that’s what caused my injury. A guy from the other team had the ball, and was about to take a shot. I was really too far away, but I still tried to jump in front of him and block the shot. When I came down, I landed on my ankle. But the shot went in anyway.
Now I have to stay in bed for a month. When my ankle is better, I may try to play basketball again, but I’ll certainly play more cautiously!
Thanks again for the books. Write me again when you have time.
