My mom has been LOVING LOVING LOVING listening to Audible books on the iPad I got her. She speeds through them, thrilled she can once again read, her eyes now not the best to see words on the pages.
We started with Hillbilly Elegy that she adored. She wanted some mystery so we tried a James Patterson and a John Grisham. She didn’t care for the language and violence of the Patterson book and didn’t like the plot of the new Grisham, Camino Island.
My sister suggested she read the Neapolitan series by Elena Ferrante so I put the first book in the series in her iPad, My Brilliant Friend. She liked it but not enough to read the rest of the series.
So politics, I asked? Maybe, she said. I searched through Audible bestsellers and gagged seeing the Best Seller in three separate categories.
Comedy?????????? Well, Al Franken IS a joke, so there’s that.
Here’s Al again, Best Seller in Biographies…..
An also in Politics….
Who are all the people reading the Al Franken book that’s making it a Best Seller? Kathy Griffin fans? Trump haters? I wouldn’t pay one penny for the book.
I asked my Iowa friend Tom, a Mark Levin fan, if he’s read Levin’s new book. He has not, and added that he too has sworn off all politics for the foreseeable future, preferring a week at Pinehurst for golf with his brothers. Need a caddy Tom? I’m able.
Anyone read Sharyl Attkisson’s book? I like her a lot. She always seems spot on, without agenda. This might be a contenda.
I thought maybe mom would like old Agatha Christie mysteries. More whodunit than blood and guts. Or some good comedy books? Please send your suggestions, keeping in mind it has to be a book that Amazon offers in Audible format.
