Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter
I can still remember what I first said upon being diagnosed with Stargardt disease that summer after graduating college ... "I won't be able to read books anymore!"
As it turned out, I can still read books, though it's hard - I have to use magnification and even then I have to guess at most of the words. It's a slow and frustrating process, which is why I hardly ever read any actual books anymore. I eventually gave up reading fiction completely because the stories just couldn't flow. But then I began listening to books instead of trying to read them. It took me a while to get used to that, but once I did, the stories resumed flowing.
The downside of listening to audio books, though, is that they're more expensive than print books (saying you can even find the book you want in audio). For instance, you can buy Storm Front by Jim Butcher in paperback for $9.99, but if you want it in audio, it will cost you $39.99 ... ouch!
So I try to find the books I want at the public library. My library doesn't have a lot of audio books, but fortunately one can use a process via computer, link+, that lets one get books that are at nearby libraries if your library doesn't have them. This too can be frustrating as you have to pounce on these books quickly before anyone at their home library puts a hold on them, as they have priority. There are a few link+ audio books I've been lying in wait for ..... Kraken by China Miéville, Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang by Kate Wilhelm, Before I go to Sleep by S. J. Watson, The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen ... someday :)
But meanwhile, I did just capture one link+ audio book I'd been waiting for for a while - Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Hope it turns out to be good!
