Looking for recommendations for a very easy to use boombox-type CD player for my elderly mother.

She doesn't do much with it besides listen to audio books and other spoken word recordings (like a Catholic rosary reading), so nothing too fancy is needed. The main thing it needs very few buttons and no frills. No need to AM/FM radio or cassette. No recommendations for MP3 or ipod docks, please, they just add complexity. Just a very dependable, very senior-friendly CD player. Cost is not really an object, but I can't imagine a basic player costing more than $100. I'm in Los Angeles, CA, so I've got lots of retail options, but online retailers are preferred.
