Searching for inspirational books on tape for newly blind

I am looking for inspirational books for a middle age man who has just lost what little sight he had. Any advice on good stories will be appreciated.

I think finding a group of blind people who get together would be better than a book.

Re:Searching for inspirational books on tape for newly blind



I don't know of any books but I personally do have a blog that's main goal is looking to the brighter side of blindness. There are funny stories as well as inspirational ones. There are funny lists meant in truth but mainly to make you smile. There are comment sections after each post so you can tell your ow story, ask questions or start a conversation. If you click the follow link or the subscribe link you will be named on the page as a follower publicly if you so choose. This will also give you the opportunity to be updated of future posts that are published onto the site There is also a pole you can vote on and it will show you the results if you click the show results link and you can see that the site does see visiters from all sides of the spectrum. I am also open to corresponding through Email as well. I will leave my Email address below. Like you I was not born blind. It's a rough adjustment. It's important to have people you can talk to to know that you are not alone. I never had that and I'm committed to helping any people who want my help if it is within my power. So as I said I look forward to talking with you and I hope you will visit my site it's called Playing The Blind Card. I will leave my addresses below. Good luck to you and remember to keep your head up
Sincerely,
Nikki

Hello,

I recommend the following, but I don't know how helpful they will be.
Lessons I Learned in the DArk
My Maggie
Traveling Blind

I do not remember the authors off the top of my head, so apologies in advance.

I hope this helps,
LIz
