Help a Girl Out

What's the good of a blog if you can't ask for help from your readers from time to time?


There are a couple of things I'm looking for:
1. Does anyone have any good resources for large-print books? I'd like to find Harry Potter in large print as well as the Trinity Hymnal (yes, both of these). Anything you know about a good place to buy books where the print is enlarged for the seeing-impaired would be really helpful.
2. I'd like to find an aerobics DVD that someone has used and actually recommends. It would be nice to have something to pop in in the mornings to get a little workout ("little" = 20 minute sessions or so).

Email me or put something in the comments if you can help me on either of these.

Thanks gang.

ADDED: How do I get rid of these annoying white borders on my gifs? Deleting "border=0" doesn't do it.

No clue about the books, but here's the "secret" to my success:

amazon typically lists large print editions of their books--might as well start there.

The publishers don't offer large print editions of the Trinity Hymnal probably out of luck. :/

Bummer! They should. They really should.

Jonny says we can't use Core Secrets because the owner is named Gunner.

I know. It's difficult to look past the name Gunner. But you only have to watch the dvd a few times before you get it down, and then you can just use the flashcards and workout while you watch Friends. It's a beautiful thing.

If it helps that I had an adorable and sweet, wonderful student named Gunnar..... He was the best.

I actually thought your first graphic was a bra...

Anyway, I don't know about the large print books, but a workout tape I've enjoyed (now, I'm going to be mercilessly abused for mentioning this...): Richard Simmon's "Sweatin' to the Oldies."

I like it.

It's fun.

I don't feel horrible doing it, since the people in the video are all shapes and sizes and doing as well/badly as me.

It's doable and accessible and has your whole warm up then heart rate up then toning then cool down.

Yeah, I know. Richard Simmons. But I about wore my tape out, so take that for what it's worth.
