My mom is going blind and we bought her the echo so she could ask the time and so forth. We also have it set up to turn on lights. It would be more than awesome if she could ask it to read the book of mormon or conference talks or music from gospel library etc!

There is a way to get Alexa to play general conference (etc.) that I don't think was already mentioned. You can upload audio files to the "My Music" section of Amazon Music. This can be done with the Amazon Music app (I am using a Mac, but I suspect the process is similar on a PC). After the file has been uploaded, you should be able to tell Alexa to play the file by its title. If you have trouble with it recognizing the name (I had trouble with "1 Nephi 02 (male voice)", just make a playlist with an easy to say name and ask Alexa to play the playlist. I only just tried this out, so I am just sharing what I've learned today.

Note that Amazon limits uploads to 250 files unless you are have an Amazon Music subscription.
