*Pissst* What are you reading? Ever wonder what book everyone else is reading in case you are missing out on enjoying something good? That’s where the “Popular Books” function on the Blind Low Vision NZ skill comes in handy.

We are excited to be able to deliver a real time, authentic, on command result, in the fashion of a top 10 list of the current popular books among our clients. All based on the total number of times a book is requested, offering a unique perspective into the tastes and likes of the community. It also gives us a pretty good idea of what to continue to deliver to you on our end. Have a peek over your shoulder to see what the other guy is reading. You may like it too!

How does it work?

  1. Say “Alexa, open Blind Low Vision”.
  2. Say “Alexa, popular books”.

Not bad, huh? You should spy more often!

To access the Blind Low Vision NZ Skill, you must be a client with library access. If you’re interested in registering with us, give us a call on 0800 24 33 33 or email info@blindlowvision.org.nz
