Some body on here made a post about weakening eyesight. I don't remember who it was, but this is a link for Talking Books (I don't know if it referred to by the same name everywhere else, that is what it was called when my grandma used the service). It is a great program that sends you both the book player and the cartridges with books on them. You don't have to leave your hkme, everything is done by mail. You can also apply to download books on your own and put them on USB thumb drive. It costs nothing for to people who qualify to use the service.
You don't have to be blind to use the service, just have a difficult time reading.
