SUBJECT        :           Braille edition of BBR delayed



Beginning with the July–August 2012 issue, Talking Book Topics was expanded to list five hundred titles to reduce a backlog of unannounced books. That same expansion applies to the abridged Talking Book Topics, an insert in the braille edition of Braille Book Review. Because of the extra length, Braille Book Review now requires a longer production period.


As a result, the September–October 2012 braille edition of Braille Book Review will be released on October 7. The large-print and electronic editions will still be available on October 1, the usual publication date. Subsequent issues will follow the same pattern of release dates until the backlog has been resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience.
