An ebook for the visual impaired?

Hi Guys,
An looking ot get an ebook, but am not sure what is the best out in the market. I have a visual impairment which affects me with small print, so am looking to get an ebook that i can increase the font of. Am also not wanting alot of glare from the ebook, as this can result in straining my eyes to read material and result in headaches.

If anyone could suggest any ebooks that would suit the nature of my disability, i would be grateful.

Regards

Andy

Have a look at the kindle, I think you can make the fonts bigger and has anti-glare screen.

You must be looking for an ebook reader rather than just an ebook.

The kindle is very nice. Or you could just put audio books on an mp3 player.

my sony psr300 has three different sizes of text

large is pretty big on most of the novels i've read

best idea is nip into waterstones and try one out

think they're about £100 now

very nice quality bit of kit

With the kindle, do you just have the option of getting the books from amazon or can you get them anywhere else?

sony reader will do any format you throw at it as far as i can see

a free Kindle aplication to download onto your pc. I know its not portable (unless you have a laptop which is still going to be bulky), but yuo casn set the font to whatever size you require.
