I use alibris a lot and find them to be pretty good, plus accessible with screen readers and customer service is good.

Hi, Debby, Bookshare is located in Palo Alto, California. One of the first
things I did when I planned to get books for Bookshare was find contact
details for them. Here's the address I use: Bookshare.org, The Benetech
Initiative, 480 S. California Ave., Suite 201, Palo Alto, Ca 94306-1609. So
far they've gotten books either from amazon.com or Powell's Bookstore
www.powells.com. I haven't used alibris.com yet, and I hear they're a source for out-of-print and hard-to-find books. I hope this helps you out. Regards,
Kim.

Hi Monica and everyone!

If I were to send a book to the Bookshare office, would I send it to a
particular person? My friend has written a really cute kid's book about her service dog. I think it would be helpful if the pictures were described, or
should I send it directly to one of the expert picture describers on this
list? I would need to buy a copy of the book from my friend first. If one
of the picture describers from the list would like to send me your address
privately, you can.

Melissa. I'll take a look for these. I think they'd be very helpful for
several of us. I remember Carrie saying a long time ago that the Dummies
books are tricky to scan. If we can't get it from a library, maybe one of
us
can find a used copy that's affordable and send it to the Bookshare office. Surely it would be educational, and they have sighted people who could help
with the sidebars.

If somebody can find either of these books in their library, and would
be willing to scan them, I'd be happy to proof. They aren't in either of
my libraries, or I'd scan them myself.
