Hi all,

I need large print books for my Mom that are really Large Print. Too many times we have been disappointed by books that say LP, but are not. My mom is visually impaired-ie.  she can't drive or read w/out glasses and a magnifer- and she depends on me and the wonderful members at PBS to keep her supplied with reading material.

She just read 9 Danielle Steels and a Pearl Buck. She doesn't want Harlequin type romances or scary horror or thrillers. Memoirs, family sagas, love stories, mysteries, andwarm classics all might fit the bill.Please dont worry too much about condition-as long as it is not dirty or smelly. She is just on the look out for "a good story"

Any help you can provide and any deals you might wish to make would be much appreciated

Thanks ,



I have also entered this on the Book Bazaar board too

I have a bunch that I haven't posted yet.  I also am visually impaired so I promise if I post a book that says LP, it will be.  Once I get them put in the system I will let you know.

I have 7 posted on my shelf.  Not all of them list as large print, but they definitely are.  I'm visually impaired, too.
