Sadly my mother is losing her sight due to complications from Diabetes. She loves to read but can no longer make out the words in regular print with her page magnifier. I need some large print books to keep her occupied since she is pretty much home-bound now. She loves mysteries and thrillers, Cop stories, True crime, Law and legal fiction.  If you have a few PM me and let's make a deal.

I only have one large print book on my pbs bookshelf Where Yesterday Lives: Sometimes Today's Answers Are Hidden . . . (Walker Large Print Books)Author: Karen Kingsbury  ISBN-13: 9781594151798

 

I do have many audio cassettes, and Cd listed if that helps.  I like the cassettes for a few reasons.  WHen you stop the tape, it stops, you dont have to search to find where you were if by chance you hit the wrong button on the cd player.  The cassettes are also sturdier.

 

PBs still has the cassettes for 2 credits, and I will trade them for 1 credit.

I am still looking for large print books for my mom. She likes mysteries, thrillers, crime stories and the like, She is not into romance so many have offered romance but thank you all the same. Doesn't like CD or audio books yet. she loves the feel of a book in her hand like most of us. If you have some books to offer please PM me.
