Recommended reading for the bed bound

Hello,
I am currently bed bound with a serious case of gastroenteritis.
I have my Sony Reader and a laptop; what would you recommend for me to read?
I'm looking for something that's light, pleasant and non-copyrighted. Furthermore something that doesn't mention sickness or violence (my stomach is currently very vulnerable..)

try some of the stuff by Pamela Houston (I haven't a clue if there are any ebooks).

"Sisterhood of Traveling Pants"

"Secret Life of Bees"

I read so much military, history and sci-fi this is a very hard request!

Oh, no.. I hope you are up and around soon. What genre do you like? Are you looking for free downloads?

I have a list I've started on feedbooks. I've listed those MR author members that I've found on feedbooks. I have their names on the list, but not all their books are listed in my downloads yet.
A fun, light paranormal, romance (although not like a harlequin romance) you might want to try is Black Silk by Jan Gordon. Check Naomi Kramer, Wesley Allison, and Ben Essex for something slightly different.

Smashwords is a site used by many MR author members also.. (I don't have a way of making a list on their site....yet) check my signature for tracking down those member's posts to their works or search for them on smashwords. Some are free. I really enjoyed Maria Schneider's books (Sage and Catch an Honest Thief) and Alan Hutcheson's book, Boomerang (coupon code here).

I hope you are feeling well, soon.

Hey me too! Yay! (ahem)
Still have to work thought (even if no one comes within a mile of my desk), but when I took Monday afternoon off (after nearly fainting) I read Anne of The Island, the third book of the Anne of Green Gables series, that have been entirely uploaded here by Dr Dribs and Patricia. Nothing better then a kids book when you're sick!

Good luck to you, and drink loads of water.

How about this?

Jane Austen, Wilkie Collins, Lucy Maud Montgomery?

Those authors are not necessarily light reading, but they get me involved to the point that I lose track of time.

For light reading may I suggest G.K.Chesterton's Father Brown stories. Wonderfully written short stories that will bring a smile to your face.
I Hope you get well soon
