My mother is very well read. I love that she loves to read. Growing-up, my mother always read to me, my brother, and my father during family road trips and before bed time. I enjoy books, but I don't like to read any more words than are required. Anytime my mom tells me that I have to read a book I know it means that I must, after all, half the fun of reading is talking about what you've read.
The Help is her current recommendation. I found the audio book on iTunes and discovered that one of my favorite actors, Octavia Spencer, is the voice of Minny on the audio book. I've been listening to it on my iPhone since our Memorial Day weekend travels. I'm on the last fourth of the book, but I couldn't wait to finish the book before I recommended that you go and get this book. It's such a great story. I cannot wait to discuss it live with my mom.
