[bksvol-discuss] Re: One thing I wish

I think back to the time that I was reading more books than I ever had in my life and more than I have since. That was in 1988 right after I became blind. I was totally unprepared for that blindness, but I did register to become a patron of the NLS just before it hit me full force. For pretty much the rest of that year. I did nothing but listen to talking books and keep medical appointments. I did not even stop for meals. I just let the talking book player continue to play right through the meals. The only thing I stopped for was sleep and medical appointments. I frequently finished as much as a book a day. If they were short books I would make it through almost two books in a day. I don't recall getting through as many as two books in one day, but I suppose I might have one or two times. The limit of downloads from Bookshare is 100 a month and can be increased to 300. That works out to about ten books a day. Even during that reading marathon right after I went blind I never even came close to reading ten books a day. If 300 books a month is not enough for you then what in blue blazes are you doing with them?

Hi, Dana, all I needed to do was email Bookshare and ask the rollback be
sent to 0 so I could download more books. Regards, Kim Friedman

I so wish there were unlimited numbers of downloads we all could get or that they even gave us price plans that were higher if we wanted unlimited number
s of downloads.
I say this for one reason.
By no means can I read all of the books that I download all at once but wow there are so many new books being posted all the time that if I do not write down all of the ones that seem interesting to me I am simply going to forget them and it would be so awesome if we had the choice to be able to download
an unlimited numberr.
I would even suggest paying 100 dollars a year if that would help those of
us who wanted to get unlimited downloads.
I simply find so many things I want to read that I always reach the limit of
what I can download and granted I can't read all of these books right away
by any means but it would be awesome to be able to just get what I wanted to
have them for whenver I wanted to read them.
Just an idea.
Thanks for reading.
Dana
