Hi Jana,

  Thanks for the recommendation.  Unfortunately, I've already read them all.  
And, btw, I think the last one is available on bookshare.

  Hi, Donna!  The Mitford Years series is good for that sort of thing.  They're 
delightful books, not heavy reading at all.  You can find all of them except 
the last one on WebBraille, but off the top of my head, I'm not sure what is 
available on Bookshare.  They're written by Jan Caron.  HTH!

    Hi all,

      I have a problem and thought maybe you all, being a bunch of heavy 
readers,  could help.  I'm studying for Ph.D. comps, and am consequently 
looking for some light reading to do in the evening.  Problem is, nothing I 
have is grabbing my attention.  I don't want anything sad, or anything that 
will place further strain on my already overstrained brain. Some possibilities 
I've looked at have included: the Diane Mott Davidson mysteries, but I read the 
first book and don't have the second one in the series and I'm finatical about 
reading series' in order; the Harry Potter books (but have already read them a 
kazillion times).  I've looked at the Lemony Snicket books on bookshare, but 
don't know much about them.  Are they the kind of kid books that adults enjoy 

      I know this isn't the purpose of this list, so feel free to respond 
privately at:
    goodindo@xxxxxxxx I appreciate any suggestions!!!

    Desperately awaiting relief, (grin*
