I do fairly well with the blind reading library, and I've probably downloaded about 60 or 80 books to flash drive.  I can still read some hardcover books if they have a fairly large normal font and good spacing.  For me, spacing is a big deal.  Here is a random list of books I'd like in hardcover that I've been unable to find in my blind database.

1.  Magic Bites  -  Andrews

2.  The Warded Man - Brett

3.  The Duncton Chronicles - Horwood

4.   The Mythago Wood - Holdstock

5.   Blood Crime - Harrison

6.  Vampire Huntress - L A. Banks

7.  Raven's Shadow #1 - Ryan

8.  Fortunately - Gaiman

9.  Any Cheyenne McCray HB

10. Kushiel's Legacy - Carey  (I would like the whole series)

11.  Queen Betsy - Davidson

12.  The Shade of Vampire - Bella Forrest

13.  The Coroner's Lunch - Cotterill

14.  Ghostwalkers - Feehan

15.  Dragon Bond and Dragon Blood - Briggs  (2 books)

16.  Truthseeker - Murphy

17.  Wayfinder - Murphy

18.  Elric of Minibone - Moorcock

19.  The Demon's Covenant - Brennan

20.  Sundiver - Brin

 

Thank you.

fyi 

LibriVox has a vast storehouse of free (public domain) audio books available in English as well as other languages. 

I checked your listing of above titles and did not find any at their website (you can search by author or titles). Many of the older books are available there. You can either stream the book directly from the site or download as a MP3 to your computer for playing at a later time. 

Highly recommended (especialy for Sci-Fi!). 

Website is: https://librivox.org/

I love Keith Lamuer as well as Clifford D Simack, as well as a little ee cummings - some of each are there.....

 

Happy New Year to young and old!.....

I'm not sure what your wanting to know.  Are you wanting to know if these are available in hardcover, or if anyone knows if there is a hardcover with good spacing?

Some these have never been released in hardcover like both of the World Walkers by Murphy were only printed on kindle and paperback, and  only the last few in the Kate Daniels series by Andrews have been printed in Hardcover.  The Kate Daniels series might eventually be printed in hardcover since they switched the last two to hard cover.  Both the Briggs Dragon books are only in paperback

Some of the others are on here in hardcover though like The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett but its wl'd so you can't order it and there is no way to know the spacing until you order it.  Actually a lot of these series are wl'd .  Ghostwalkers by Feehan are on here some posted, some wishlisted.

You need to be more specific on what you are wanting.  And if you are wanting to know if anyone has these you should make sure they are not wish listed as were not allowed to ask for wishlisted books.  If you just need help figuring out how to find just hardcovers you just need to search for the book and then on the search page make sure everything is unchecked except the hardcover option.  Otherwise I'm not sure what you are trying to do with this post.

You should find out if your local library uses https://www.hoopladigital.com/library and if not try to get them to its awesome my library just started using it and it rocks they have a lot of scify.  Also if you don't mind paying a small monthly fee Scribd (https://www.scribd.com/g/42cl9z) just started doing audio they are slowly rolling out big name authors though the audio.  You can get one month free there and after that its 8.99 a mth.  Also Kindle unlimited is 9.99 and it has audio books too.  Do you use an ereader?  You can change the print on e books by making them larger.  We had to get my mom one because she couldn't see the words on her phone and the apps wouldn't make the words large enough for her to read.

You could also try your local library for the ones that are available in hardcover for interlibrary loans.
