I'm reading it to you for relax.

An excerpt:

         He held up the book then.  "I'm reading it to you for relax."

     "Has it got any sports in it?"

     "Fencing.  Fighting.  Torture.  Poison.  True love.  Hate.  Revenge.  Giants.  Hunters.  Bad men.  Good men.  Beau-tifulest ladies.  Snakes.  Spiders.  Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain.  Death.  Brave men.  Cowardly men.  Strongest men.  Chases.  Escapes.  Lies.  Truths.  Passion.  Miracles."

     "Sounds okay," I said, and I kind of closed my eyes.
