Post Greetings from a Legally Blind Bookworm

Hello all!

I've been lurking on these forums for quite some time, gleaning quite a lot of useful information actually, but thought I'd introduce myself properly.

I have a condition called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, meaning that my optic nerves didn't completely develop. So while my eyes are pretty much fine, the signals just aren't getting to my brain. My functional vision is out of a small field in my left eye (I can sort of see light and color with my right.)

I've been an avid reader for a long time. I can read regular print by putting it right up to my eye, but of course that's not ideal. I'm very intrigued by the eBook movement, and have dabbled in converting some of my own writing to various mobile formats. I don't yet own an e-reader, but I'm hoping to snag an iPad sometime in the next few months. The ability to enlarge the text is invaluable for me. I also do a lot of audiobooks via audible.com.

Anyway, I just thought I'd drop in and say hello. Hope everyone's well this holiday season.

~Seth~
