MP3 player for visually impaired

I need to purchase an MP3 player for someone who is severely visually impaired, sadly from macular degeneration. She has always loved to read and I thought audio books that her daughter could download from online would be the perfect gift. I need to keep the price around $100 and have decent memory ...

Re: Online site to buy jigsaw puzzles of lightning?

It's actually for work. Our business is weather-related and I wanted to use puzzles for the employees to have some fun in the breakroom and then we would display the finished puzzle throughout the building. Kind of a team-building thing.

Thanks so much for the responses.

Re: Who has had their wedding ring engraved?

We didn't tell each other what we engraved but waited until we read it personally.

Mine says : MyHeartMyLifeMyLove
His says: By Your Side

Not enough room to put the date for either of us....so far we have remembered it... :wacko:

Winnie the Pooh, that is...but, trust me, I felt the same way about the gift, either way. :rolleyes:

It was a bottle of Winnie the Pooh bubble bath (bubble gum scented) accompanied with a Piglet bath scrubbie. Bizarre.

Thanks for all the responses. I am doing my best but it is day three and I do believe I am officially hating these glasses. It's just so annoying trying to find "the spot" for correct vision for every single thing I look at....and only what is directly in front of you. And I think the fram...
