Post Reading with poor eyesight
Hi all,

I am a lifelong reader but my eyesight has been getting worse with age. Can anyone recommend their favorite books printed in large fonts or otherwise provide any advice on how to make reading easier? Feel free to reach out here or at 5713649079. I appreciate any and all answers!

Thank you,
Roberta

Hi Roberta,

Sorry to hear about your deteriorating eyesight. Four of my books are available in Large Print.
Missing in Egypt: http://www.amazon.com/dp/149121872X/
Missing at Sea: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1544735111/
Missing in London: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1718658842/
Dangerous Associations: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1507554915/

You can also ask your local library to order them.

Do you use an electronic reader? If so you can adjust the print size on the reader.

Post Re: Reading with poor eyesight
My dad had to abandon print books because of eyesight and hand pain from arthritis, so I fixed him up with a computer and a Mobipocket reader. He liked the black background with white Arial lettering, three columns per screen. The set-up allowed him to continue reading for a dozen years after he set the print books aside. You might look into that.

Also, I don't think I've ever seen anyone put a phone number in a first post. If you're a real person then perhaps you're too trusting. If you're a new iteration of spambot...well then I don't know what to say.
