Oh, no, you've reached the end of the book!

I'm still writing it. If you want to give me encouragement, a tip of any size to my PayPal will guarantee a new page with your name on it!

Please include a note on how you'd like to be attributed. On top of the new lesson, I'll put a name and link of your choice, or can keep you anonymous.

(I reserve the right to veto any name or link I find inappropriate -- I want to keep the textbook family-friendly as best as possible. GitHub, Twitter, and personal websites should all be fine)

Pending Lessons

I've been pretty busy with real life, so I've been delaying writing more lessons until I have a better idea of how to order them and have time to do it properly. This is my queue of owed lessons:

  1. Justin
  2. Thomas
  3. Thomas

Thanks for your generosity. I really appreciate it and want to get to this book as soon as possible!

Broad Discussion Topics

  • S-P and TK-LS need to be mentioned here, maybe arrow key movements too?

Shortening principles:

  • -y words (oh my goodness :O, this'll be big...)
    • KWREU
    • SKWREU
    • REU, HREU, PWEU...
  • -ie, -ey, -ee
  • Inversion

  • All top 100 words covered ✓

Words beginning with:

  • co, con, com
  • o, on
  • pre, pro
  • re, de
  • in, int, inter
  • un, under

Advanced number usage, such as -Z, -D, clock times, Roman numerals?

Brief families:

  • Months of the year, days of the week
  • Units inch, feet, kilometers, kilograms etc.
  • Phrases

I want to get Jeff to make illustrations, mainly to draw the exercise sentences. I want a wet rat to be hugged.

In the later lessons I think I'll move more into a format where I have one or two "letters" or stories as opposed to just the drilling sentences.

Topics to cover

  • Capitalization
  • Punctuation
  • Cursor movement
