Kevin is always amazed when I finish a book in less than twenty-four hours, as I did with this one. Yet, when several of those hours are spent on public transportation trying to make it into a city crowded with post-holiday shoppers and a few more of those hours are spent laying in bed blissfully knowing you have no where to be because you are on Christmas vacation...well, what does he expect? If my iPod had not died on the train on the way home, I would have finished this fun, light-hearted memoir in less than twelve hours.
My First Ladies made its way onto my iPod at the last minute before we hit the road for the big city with Kevin's family. I knew I would need something to read en route and when this popped up on our library's digital loan website, I went immediately for the download button. You may remember from earlier this year that the goings on inside the White House are fascinating to me. Ever since I did a project on that famous house in elementary school (for the record, the Styrofoam White House
my mom I made was way better than the sugar cube White House my classmate made), I have been entranced by its history and the stories of those within its walls.
