Great events at Bookshare.org! We just hit 20,000 titles on our electronic book library for people with print disabilities. We are delivering more and more books that meet the literacy needs of our users, by providing the latest bestsellers, textbooks and daily newspapers into accessible form.

Another great piece of news is that Janice Carter has joined Benetech as our Director of Literacy Programs, and is now general manager of Bookshare.org. Janice is an experienced executive from the media and technology industries, and I am quite excited to have a senior executive adding her perspective in our operations!

Janice and I are heading out to Florida this week for the NIMAS meeting on the new national digital textbook repository and the ATIA disability technology conference. Should be a fun week, and important for moving access to books forward.
