Large Print Book Shop

The RNIB estimate that one in eight of us in the UK cannot enjoy standard print, because of sight problems, dyslexia, or disability that makes it difficult to hold a book or turn a page. About one third of the large print titles available are print-on-demand titles and this means that they are never out of stock as they are printed just for you to a standard that makes them indistinguishable from any other book. This use of new printing technology means many more Large Print Books are becoming available to satisfy the needs of the visually impaired and we aim to have the biggest selection of them right here on Lovereading.

If you read by yourself or are in a reading group we hope you enjoy, and find useful, our Large Print Books category.... And if you do, then spread the word.
