I have a hard time distinguishing red from green, especially in tiny text on a laptop screen. That makes it hard to see which (if any) books are available on the author pages like the one at the link below.

I wonder if another way could be found to mark which books are available or not?

How frustrating!  That is a very good point!

My 6 year old son is color blind...excuse me, color deficient.   That has got to be hard.

I had not thought of that. My husband is also color blind and can not always tell red from green.

Hummmm - you might send a not to R&R.  Maybe they can flag them with an "A" if available, or something....

My Dad and both my brothers and three of my nephews are all blue:grey color blind.  My brother wore green socks with his grey morning suit to his wedding. :)

When you do a search you can ask it to list Only Posted Book or Only Wish List Books. 

Many years ago I worked for an insurance agent that was color blind. We always new when his wife was mad at him because his socks didn't match.
