Book suggestions for Alzheimer's patient?

Asked by syz (35649points) February 14th, 2016

My dad was recently diagnosed with Alzheimers. He still likes/tries to read, but he can’t follow a full length book, so I thought I might be able to find a collection of short stories or articles that he might enjoy. In non-fiction, he’s interested in Mars, space travel, and geology. In fiction, he used to read all of the Jack Reacher books and things of that ilk.

Do you have any recommendations?

Is it possible to take him to a bookstore and see what he chooses? Go to a used bookstore and he can pick several out to lay around the home.
