Spoken from the Heart by Laura Bush
A couple of months ago, I saw Laura Bush and her daughters on an episode of Oprah. Laura Bush was promoting her new autobiography, and I decided to read it. I didn't vote for George Bush (#1 or #2) for president, and I didn't really know anything about Laura Bush.
Bush chronicles her early life which I found pretty interesting. When she gets to the White House years though, it's a recitation of state dinners, trips abroad, and cause that she devoted herself to. I do like that she's a librarian, loves to read, and promoted literacy and reading.
This book was okay and pleasant enough, but didn't have the juice and insider's look into the White House and the Bush presidency that I thought it might have.
