I note that there are still 6000+ MABs available. Does anyone know if there are any large print MABs? Or is there any way to search for large print MABs short of trooping through the entire list of posted large print books? 

I've already posted this question in CMT but thought/hoped there might be a different answer here....

If a volunteer data editor here has gotten hold of the listing, it will say "Large Print" in parentheses in the title.  That would mean that you could open a page of 100 MAB books and do a browser page search (CTRL-F) for the words Large Print. 

I haven't seen any large print MAB books yet, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. 

If we could do a word search for MABs, you could search for "Thorndike" or "Ulverscroft", or other large print publishers.

I'd suggest going down to the bottom right corner of any page here.  Under "company" click on "contact us"  Use the Feedback option to ask the PBS Team whether large print books would ever be included in MAB books, and if so, whether there would be a way to search for them.
