Sonja S (iceblinc) | 12 comments Please consider signing the following petition for people who are blind to have access to books from around the world. Go here for more information; the petition closes June 22nd. Please pass this along!

As an avid reader myself, I was sad to hear that only 1% of all books are accessible to me and others like me.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this issue!

Sincerely,
Sonja
