In a press conference with reporters today on Capitol Hill, Harry Reid described what he's been up to since injuring his face and ribs in an exercising accident:
"As some of you know, I'm an avid reader. Read lots and lots of books, even some good ones during the break. So because -- I have not been able to read. They have told me if you have an eye that's healing and you try to overwork your good eye, it puts too much pressure on it. So I haven't been reading. I'm now on rehab so last night for example I was able to read. But I've been listening to audio books--I've quite enjoyed it, to be honest. I never thought I would. So I've finished a couple books that way," Reid said.
"I spend a lot of time with my staff. On the telephone, I have staff meetings at my home, and I've had good -- my daughter's been visiting with me. I've got son coming this weekend. So I'm doing fine."
He's scheduled to undergo eye surgery soon.
