I found them online.

I sat in the comfortable chair as they attacked the diodes and wires to my temples.

"I'll remember nothing about it, right?"

"That's right. Nothing at all. You will wake with a powerful urge to read a note in your pocket. We will implant that."

I smiled as the machine powered-up and the warmth of the attachments penetrated my skull.

The moment I woke, I dug out the note that I somehow knew was there.

There's a book on the table beside you. Read it! It's the best book you've never read. It's your favourite.

    Thanks. :-)
    There are books I would love to read for the first time again. However, there are also books I like to read like putting on a comfortable pair of old slippers.
