Newsletter Subtitle:  SOMETHING NEW!  HOPE YOU LIKE IT!

Month Day Year:  MARCH 25, 2011

 

This is something new for us!  Genealogists are true readers because it is what we do to complete our research, right?  But reading microfiche and staring at computer screens all day can be hard on our eyes, Right?

 

A good alternative hobby for people who do research or work on computers all day is to change our focus to give our eyes a rest by reading larger type.  Since reading is my favorite pastime, and I read all day, I wanted to read a book for relaxation that came printed in larger type.  Many libraries have lots of books written in large type, but their intended readership was for children between six and twelve years old!  I don't qualify! I asked my librarian if she had large-print recreational reading books for adults.

 

I was delighted when she said, "Of course we do.  We have something for everyone here."  She directed me to a large shelvig unit about six feet tall.  I was delighted to see it was packed with books on every inch of every shelf.

 

She smiled at me and said, "The large-print books are on the third shelf from the top."  Since I have been reading omnivorously since I was four years old, and most of the books were classics I had read before sixth grade, I checked out all the books I hadn't yet read,  

there were six of them, and walked happily back to the car.  Two weeks later I took them all back, turned them all in, and asked if  

there were any new ones.  She said they only received one or two of the larger print books a month. 

 

I was unhappy about that, but I was happy that I had at last read  

,one of my favorite mystery writers, James Patterson, in large print, because it was so comforting not to have to strain my eyes any  

further and therefore, I could read longer at a time.  He is just as challenging to read in large print.  I can not get two steps ahead of him, and most of the time, it is rough to keep up with the twists and turns he cleverly peppers into each of his books.  He has two new ones out now, but my library does not have them in the larger-print editions yet.

 

Eventually I found some book clubs that print in large print editions.  I joined those and the only drawback I could see is that the bookcase does not hold as many large print editions as it does the smaller paperback size.

 

And then, I hit pay dirt big time.  I found a paperback book club that prints books in larger print than normal.  I joined that book club  

years ago, and I have a very large collection of these that I have already read.  I was talking to one of my customers about those and she said, "When you are through with then why don't you start a newsletter for people, like you and me, who don't see as well as we used to, and whose eyes get tired trying to read all the small print there is around in books and magazines.

 

"Besides that" she said, "you know a lot of us are older and we don't get out as much as we used to."  So, Mary Elizabeth, here it is-issue one of Larger-Print Books for Recreational Reading.  Romance Division.  Read, Select, Call and Enjoy!  Oh!  By the way, if you buy

SIX or more your shipping/handling  is FREE!

 

I thought about her good idea and decided I would give it a try.  This is KS 01.  and these are larger print type and the books are generally American romances.  Let me know if you like this idea, too.  By the way, guys, we have another idea about a larger-print newsletter like this one, but with mysteries on it.  That might be good for some of you.  Keep Watching!
