Welcome to the best time of year for snuggling up with a book! During the holiday season, it’s fun to revisit treasured classics and discover new favorites. We made a list (of books) and checked it twice to give you a sleigh full of ideas on what to read. So grab a blanket and a warm drink and settle in with heartwarming books featured in this blog.
Olga Borovaya has been doing research and teaching at Stanford and other universities since 1998, which is when she started losing her eyesight. An expert in Sephardic Studies and Ladino Culture, she was always looking for resources and devices that would make her work possible despite her visual impairment, but most of the time she relied on research assistants who would read to her in several languages and help her find books at the university libraries. Fortunately, she discovered Bookshare and now relies on it for immediate access to scholarly texts in accessible formats.
As we prepare for the Thanksgiving season, the Bookshare team is grateful every day for everyone in the community who made a difference in someone’s life: a teacher who mentored a struggling student, a parent who supported and encouraged a child to read, or a volunteer who scanned and proofread a book on a Bookshare member’s wish list. Plus – enjoy these recommendations for holiday reading!
