Trouble Holding up Books

22 posts in this topic

Mary - what a fabulous idea! Has anyone ever told you that you have a brilliant mind!! I am going to chat with my doctor next week. I'll check out what paper work is required. I still want to "read' my precious books myself but on those days that I simply can't, this would be the solution. Cheers to you my friend! Hugs, Ann

Thanks, Ann! No, no one has recently mentioned that I have a brilliant mind, but I love it!

Mary - Thanks for bringing the Talking Books program to our attention! What a great program. I've added it to our Patient Support Programs on the ISN disability page. I'm going to send the link to my dad. He has macular degeneration and requires large print books. He told me about a month ago that he has exhausted the large print books at his local library, so this will be a great source for him and for so many others.

 

Thanks again!

Hi Janey,

My dad's vision was so bad,by the tiime we applied for the Talking Books program, that he needed the audio version. But, my 96 year old auntie also was in the program ,and she got the large-print books. I can't say enough good things about this program and usually, when I mention it, no one has ever heard of it. They don't seem to promote it at all.

 

Your dad will love it! I forgot to say earlier that even the librarian, instead of a doctor, can sign a person's application, if he or she is familiar with the applicant.

I have narrowed down my selection for solving my HOLDING UP BOOKS dilemma. I am waiting for my application for the Talking Books Program (that is such a fabulous program, I am jazzed just thinking about it!) and the e-book format. I think having both will give me all the options I'll need to keep my addiction to reading alive and well. I'm a happy camper! :emoticons-yes: Thanks all. Big big hugs, Ann

Ann, you will love the Talking Books Program! I am a reading addict myself. I love mysteries. Good luck with the program. Let us know when you get started.
