"Learn from the mistakes of others, because you'll
never live long enough to make them all yourself." I wish I could
attribute that great quote; it's one of my favorites, but I have no idea
where it came from.
The point is clear, however; if you want to learn from
the experiences of others, there's no better way than to read about
their experiences in books. Here are some you might enjoy.

Editor: Do you enjoy novels about people with hearing loss? How about
novels written by people with hearing loss? How about novels that do both
those things? If so, "Lip Reader" should be just up your alley!
Most people don't expect to deal with hearing loss until their old age,
but one person has years of experience and she is in her mid-thirties.
Shanna Bartlett Groves has dealt with hearing loss in online support
groups, speaking engagements, relationships and now in a new novel.
Groves, a freelance writer, completed the novel Lip Reader based on her
own experiences with hearing loss. "I wrote Lip Reader to tell a story of
a family dealing with hearing loss. This is a story that not only tells
about their experiences with being hard of hearing in a hearing world, but
also some of the reactions that other people have had with their deafness.
"My own hearing journey inspired the two main characters in the story,
12-year-old Sapphie Traylor and her mother Rea. The extended family - the
grandparents, uncles, aunt and cousins - were inspired by my father's
family, some of whom still live in the Fort Cobb/Anadarko, Oklahoma, area
where I was born."
She has written about her hearing loss journey in Hearing Loss Journal,
The Kansas City Star, MOMSense and the book A Cup of Comfort For Nurses.
