I haven't seen it yet Georgia. But I've been off bookshare for awhile and 
that would be the first stop. Of course it is also likely on Amazon. I did 
hear an interveiw with the author on NPR and, indeed being a huge Twain fan 
it is interesting.

Aside from this book though there are plenty of Twain books in a variety  of 
formats that are accessable and in the public domain. The project Gutenberg 
cite has many of course. Bookshare also. And of course NLS in both digital, 
Braille and tape.

I have quite a collection of the public domain books that are in Word 
format. If folks wish to write me off list I'll send them to you again as 
they are in the public domain there are not issues here.

Of course those fortunate enough to have Braille displays or Braille 
embossers and who are fluent in reading Braille can read these files in 
Braille too.

My Braille reading speeds aren't that good, but I can "rip through" them 
quite well with my screen reader.

Anyway you remind me Georgia in that I need to renew my bookshare 
membership. If that book is a New York Times best seller it will be there 
much faster than NLS will produce it though you might make a request from 
the MCB Braille and Talking Book Library as an option.

Merry Christmas,
