I've been wanting to do this post for a while since I talk a lot about disability in books on my blog and have the list of sci-fi/fantasy books with disability and everything, but let me tell you, there are NOT a lot of book covers out there that show any sort of visible disability on them.

Bookish Musings: I Want More Books about… Disability & Medical Needs in Post-Apoc Worlds

I put the ellipses in the title because I'm going to make this a new kinda sporadic feature. Meaning I plan to do at least a few other posts about things I want more books about. I think it'll be fun :-) Anyway...
