"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you
forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be
sophisticated, but when you get the two of them together in a way
people can relate to, then I think you're on to something. You want
the sophistication to lie in the purity of the sound, the beauty of
the arrangements, and the quality of the performances."-Trumpeter

I have never even visited Facebook. I understand that it is all very
visually oriented. Is it really useful enough to us blind people that it is
worth  learning?

Lissi,

If you ever change your mind about Facebook, I'd be more than glad to
give you a quick tutorial; I had an extremely hard time learning to
navigate as well *smile*  It's definitely not something I think will
be a required skill to enjoy Bookshare in the future; I just wanted
you to know the offer was there if you wanted it.

Dear Andy and Booksharian Friends,

About Facebook, I'm with you, Andy. I have no idea how to navigate it.
The
bits and pieces of conversation I was able to find didn't seem worth the
effort, nothing of substance seemed to be said, or it was beyond me and
my
computer to get to it.

With my very low partial vision, I didn't become aware of faces until I
was
a teenager. I knew they had eyes, noses and mouths, but had no idea
people
depended on looking at them and looked at them all of the time.

Finally I learned to come as close as possible to appear to make eye
contact, but it's a chore I perform for courtesy, not something that
informs
me in any way.

I hope it doesn't make me of less value as a volunteer that I hope not to
have to go back to Bookshare's face again. And I hope these lists remain
viable, where we can talk in complete thoughts, without the interruptions
of
constant navigational hops, pictures and graphics or whatever they are,
that
have no meaning for us, and  strings of links and phrase swapping.

Always with love,

Lissi

Sorry, facebook groups and books about the ADA aren't my thing.

In case you have not stumbled across it yet Bookshare has a few special
items in store up on the Bookshare Facebook page in celebration of the
20th anniversary of the ADA.

We are holding off on a press release until tomorrow but you can
discover
here one of the secrets. It's a book-a-day featured from the Bookshare
library:

http://www.facebook.com/#!/bookshare

Head on up to the Facebook site and "Like" something. Add your comments
on
the featured book or suggest one that should be added to the
collection.
