New Blog: Accessible Reads

As I've been writing this blog, I've realized there are some things I enjoy writing about more than others. Anything geeky, for one - new hearing aid tech and smartphone apps and everything else just makes me happy. Another of my favorite subjects is deafness in books, or, rather, treatment of any kind of disability in books, particularly novels.

With that in mind I decided to start a second blog with book reviews and thoughts about books that contain a character with a disability (not just deafness, but other things like blindness, autism, mobility problems, etc). The blog is called Accessible Reads and can be found at

I'm not just writing about novels, but also nonfiction books and memoirs. Although most of the books I have read treat the subject of various disabilities well, some of them can be cringe-inducing, and I'll be writing about those, too. The posts will be a combination of original posts and re-posts of reviews I've written elsewhere.

This blog is definitely not going to end, this is just a supplementary blog that deals with a different focus. I hope you enjoy it.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing an interesting compilation of these. This is a GREAT idea.

  2. Will bookmark your site. :)

  3. Can you create a box at all on your new site, so I can sign up email please?

  4. Liz, thanks for the suggestion! It should be there now on the left hand side of the page.
