Have you even heard about these books, let alone read them?

 

Why this website:

Frankly, I love books and have a good collection of books, along with some rare books on disability collected from all around the world.   There are some books that are rich in information whereas others outline the history of the disability movement in the authors’ respective countries and then there are some books that narrate poignant human stories.

Talking to many fellow disabled friends and associates in the field of disability I came to know that almost all of them were (unaware) of some of the exquisite books written by disabled persons.

We firmly believe that the majority of population for which these books are meant for, should at least get a glimpse of them.

Request:

We happily look forward to your feedback/comments on these books or, others that you would like to recommend to us.

Dedications:

This website is dedicated to the indomitable sprits of millions of disabled persons who against all odds move on……………
