Why isn't this a regular book type that we do along with paperback, hardback, ect. I have a friend that I think would like to join this site, but not having this catagory would make it hard for her to order books. Anyone already touched on this subject someplace, and I just didn't find it in the search?

I can't help you very much --- But I can guess why this isn't a category....

When I searched under "Braille" as a keyword it came up with about 270 results - few of them posted. This also included many books about "Louis Braille" -- But the books weren't actually in braille.

When I searched for "Braille Edition" in the title it came up with only 77 results, NONE of them posted.

I would guess they don't have braille as a category because it seems like there are only 77 ISBNs in PBS that are braille titles. It seems like however they do the coding to make an extra category might be a giant amount of work for only 77 books that may or may not ever get posted.

I dunno. Just an idea...

Maybe she would be interested in audio books until any of these books can be posted to her wish list?
