Hi, Lissi. Never! Not with Bookshare! <smile> I, too, love it. I was talking to my husband about this exact thing, actually, yesterday, I think it was. Every time I open a Bookshare file, I momentarily think about the days when it was just NLS for me, and those days weren't that long ago, at least in my case...only almost two years since I've been with Bookshare, and I haven't looked back since! <smile> Growing up, in middle school, I had a college reading level, and the books NLS sent me would drive me to distraction! I don't mind a children's book every once in a while. It's nice, light reading and I like that kind of thing sometimes, but I needed something more challenging than that but didn't get it. Now, I have more than I'll ever read, I know, but I love every minute of it. I love knowing whenever I'm in the mood to read, I don't have to rely any more on a librarian in another part of the state who has no idea of my reading abilities, likes and dislikes. Take care.

Funny, for that one book you recognized, you found two more you hadn't read, yet. hahahahah. I haven't read the two DeMaurier books in the collection, either but also added them to my list. It's frustrating, but I love it, too, that we aren't in danger of running out of new books to read! All of these books available for me to read make me feel so wealthy!
