How sad is it that I prefer large print books when I can get them... I must be getting old or the regular type is too tiny. *grumbles*

I don't think I've ever read a large print book. My grandad used to have a few, though. ;)

Books where the print is smaller than normal bug me though. Like my copy of the last Dark Tower novel. Ugh, that hurt to read at times.

Of course, with the advent of Ereaders you don't need to buy a specialist book, you can just bump up the font size. Simple! :D

Download Kindle for PC from Amazon, then you can download books and adjust the fonts on your computer...

me too! I get them at the library. What I love about my Kobo e-reader is that I can use the large font...it's perfect. I don't have to search through the small selection of the large print books at the library and get disappointed when what I'm looking for isn't there. I can read whatever book I want to read in large print on my Kobo.

Yeah, I've had a couple from the library when the large print was the only version of that title they had and thought "Hey, this is great!"

I'm planning on getting an ebook reader soon and will almost certainly make the font pretty big a lot of the time.

::Sigh:: I tell ya, you hit 40 and it all starts falling apart.

I've gotten spoiled with the big font on my Kindle. Trying to read regular sized print in my MMPB makes my eyes cry.

My eyesight is terrible anyway. An e reader would make a lot of sense.
