Here's a list of freeware notepads. I've never tried any because I don't use it, so good luck.

If you are using Notepad (or Wordpad) because you cannot afford MS Office, I suggest you try Open Office, which is free

Notepad does not have spell check. Never had, never will
As the name implies, it is just a notepad.

If you are going to write a book, do what Garmanma suggests and get Open Office.
Its fee. Reads and writes Microsoft Word format too!
In the beginning there was the command line.
