Dear Booksharian Friends,

No, I'm not selling anything; I'm shopping.

For years I've been timeless because I didn't want to buy yet another boring looking braille watch. I've been wearing cheap, pretty watches I can't read, even a Harry Potter watch. Enough is enough. Strangers are friendly when I ask what time it is, but though I prefer being intuitive about the duration of most of my activities, I also like being punctual and knowing the time when I need to.

During the years I've been without a braille watch, I was hoping some manufacturer would catch on to the fact that plenty of us blind women like pretty, stylish accessories.A braille watch face needs to be standard and uncluttered, but what about a pretty metal bezel or band. Sighted women can buy watches that look like bracelets or that have decorative details at prices from ten to thousands of dollars.

We're a small segment of the population so it's not profitable to cater to us. I'm tired of not having a braille watch and will be thrilled to have any style, no matter how unimaginative the design. Before I make the purchase, I just had to check in case any of you know of any source for pretty lady's braille watches. Do you know of any e-mail groups where members trade off tips about adaptive aides and appliances in general?
