Books for Adults

Blind adults will thoroughly enjoy this extensive collection of diverse Braille titles. Indeed, there's something here for everyone, guaranteed!

?"I've travelled the world twice over,
Met the famous: saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners.
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks,
All with one library ticket,
To the wonderful world of books."
- Janice James.

Hello there! Thanks for popping over to our extensive collection of Braille books for adults. Why don't you take a minute and tell us where your interests lie, and we'll give you a few ideas.

Popular Books
Here's a good assortment of titles for all interests; everything from the Chicken Soup stories to espionage to romance, from suspense and thrillers to family intrigue. Robin Cook, Patricia Cornwell and Mary Higgins Clark are just a few of the well-known authors you'll find in this section.

Because Braille books are so expensive to make, bookstores for the blind only have a limited number of novels available. Though our selection covers a wide range of interests, even we don't have thousands of titles to pick from. Don't dispare, though, because we've put together a list of Bestsellers for Adults . If you quickly browse through the most popular titles available to blind readers here, you will probably find one your friend or loved one would enjoy tremendously!

A Game of Thrones
As a whole, this spellbinding series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern fantasy, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Magic, mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill these pages and transport us to a world unlike any we have ever experienced. Already hailed as a classic, George R.R. Martin's stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction.

Know someone who's always cracking jokes and telling funny stories? Why not get them a joke book from our Family Fun section? Or perhaps a book filled with all sorts of fascinating trivia tidbits?

Books of Poetry
Reading one or two really good poems a day can be an incredibally relaxing experience - and just plain fun besides! Here is the work of some of the world's best poets, including Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allan Poe.

Twilight Saga
Bella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in. Now, however, nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

Books by Danielle Steel
Heartwarming ... Romantic ... Realistic ... That's what each and every one of Danielle Steel's page-turners are!

John Grisham Books
The Firm catapulted Grisham into the ranks of this country's most popular authors, spending forty-seven weeks on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list and eighteen weeks as number one in paperback. Since then, Grisham has crafted many more gripping tales of legal intrigue, including The Client, The Pelican Brief, The Runaway Jury and Skipping Christmas.

Star Trek Series
"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise ..." For many of us, these very words invoke a flashback of those cozy family nights, spent watching the latest episode of Star Trek on TV - while munching on popcorn or chips. And now, through these science-fiction books, you can relive the adventures of Captain Kirk and Picard (along with their loyal crews) - as they "seek out new life and new civilization, and boldly go where no man has gone before"!

Star Wars Series
More than twenty-five years after the phenomenon was born, Star Wars remains one of the greatest fantasy sagas ever told. Not only are these science-fiction novels enjoyed by adults, but scores of young adults and teens also love reliving the Star Wars film series through the pages of these books. Read these stories and rediscover the wonder of the epic that begins: "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ...".

Agatha Christie Mysteries
Agatha Christie is the world's best known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Agatha Christie's genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. Her worldwide popularity is phenomenal, her characters engaging, her plots spellbinding. No one knows the human heart - or the dark passions that can stop it - better than Agatha Christie. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime.

Treasured Classics
Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, H. G. Wells and Jules Verne are just a few of history's best-known authors, whose pivital books you can collect from this area. You'll also find The Old Man and the Sea, 1984, Gone with the Wind, and volumes of Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, to name just a few.

Shakespeare's Plays
Romeo and Juliet ... Hamlet ... A Midsummer Night's Dream ... William Shakespeare's plays continue to enjoy such enormous world-wide popularity that no library is complete without at least a couple of them.

Timeless Classics

The Bible
From Genesis to Revelation, From Creation to Resurrection, you can now read each and every one of the books of God's Word in Braille!

Christian Books
We often have a chance to talk to fellow believers - at church, at get-togethers, and at summer picnics. We frequently have the privilege of listening to a great sermon or talking with a good friend about Biblical truths. But we can get so much out of a book - a book we can read and absorb at our own leisure. And here, we have everything from a daily devotional to give you lots to talk about and read aloud to the family, to a book written by country singers, as they tell us their stories of knowing God. There's something here for every Christian, and the simple, down-to-earth language will make it a pleasure for everyone to read and enjoy these timeless stories.

For good, wholesome novels (filled with believable characters, realistic plots, and hair-raising adventures that will stick with you for a lifetime), check out our exciting new collection of Christian Fiction . To begin our collection of quality Christ-centered fictional reading, we're pleased to present many titles by best-selling Christian authors Karen Kingsbury and Dee Henderson. These books hold true to Christian morals, principals, and values, and weave in fantastic stories as well - meaning you get the best of both worlds from these outstanding novels.

The Left Behind Series
Beautifully written and biblically accurate, the Left Behind books herald the beginning of the end! This bestselling series will appeal not only to Christian readers but to anyone who loves a great story - they don't call the Bible "the greatest story ever told" for nothing. Beginning with the Rapture of the church as related in the Book of Revelations, the authors brilliantly imagine the tribulations non-believers will experience and endure, and perfectly describe for us the events prophesied to occur prior to Christ's return to earth. (The Left Behind novels are the fastest-selling works of Christian fiction ever published.)

Cookbooks
Whether you'd like to master the basics of cooking, or are striving to become an accomplished chef, the wide selection of Braille cookbooks we've got available is sure to get you up and running. No matter what you want to prepare - from scrumptious main dishes, salads and breads to irresistible cookies, pies and other desserts - one of the books on this shelf will surely show you how.

By the way, if you're a dog-lover, you won't want to miss our extensive collection of Books About Guide Dogs . The many honest and revealing Peter Putnam books, as well as The Guide Dog Experience can be collected from this cosy little corner.

Reference Library
Trying to build up your reference library (either at college or at home)? Do you always seem to get caught wondering how you can vary your writing instead of using fascinating three times in one paragraph? Perhaps you'd better stop by our reference library to see what we've got available. (In other words, you need our Braille thesaurus!)
