I haven't been on in awhile, so if you guys have already discussed this, my apologies!



But anyway, have you heard about the new book Obama has written?

I think it would be a wonderful Christmas gift for my niece, so I'll probably buy it. She's crazy about books.

I haven't seen it, and probably won't bother to look at it. Not for the reasons that many here will think- it has nothing to do with my political ideology. I don't own, and have never picked up any children's book written by celebrities. I can't really say why, it's just something that doesn't get my attention.

I'll look at it. My children are all young adults at this point and I have no grandchildren on the horizon as of yet but I do still pick up children's books, if they catch my eye, for my (hopefully) future grandchildren. There are so many good children's books, and we have so many past favorites, that I am really picky about what constitutes a 'good' children's book. If this meets the grade I will certainly pick it up. May do so for it's historical value anyway.

You're really missing out. There are some great children's books written by celebrities. I especially love books by Jamie Lee Curtis.

Next time I go to the library I will pick up a Jamie Lee Curtis book or two and give it a try. : )
