Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Readers, I need some help!! Please =)

Posted by   + Show Post

My mom just retired and she's bored already. She loves to read, her favorite author is Danielle Steel. She just got the newest book and read it in a day, so she's says to me she needs a similar author to read. Any suggestions?

She might like Mary Kay Andrews, for a light read. Jodi Picoult.is another great one.  She discusses some serious issues though. Hope this helps

Buy you mom a Nook Tablet for Christmas I have one and absolutely love it. She can even check books out from the library in their ebook collection and you get it for 2 weeks I believe and then it just expires on its own so you don't worry about any fees. The Nook also has like 1 million free books all different genres.

I've read JM before. She is really good.

Quoting Cafe MichelleP:

I don't care for Steele myself but if she wants a good read with a great story and characters you actually care about, she should read Judith McNaught. Her historicals are unparalleled and her contemporaries are good. If she does read her contemps, I will caution you about Double Standards, it is the only one that is truly 'dated'.
