2016 Book List~Part 1

Last year my theme was the Civil Rights Movement.  This year's theme is First Ladies, as I continue my study of them and writing their profiles on my blog.  I am reading a book on each first lady and each president, then I watch the C-span profiles on both, and then I find other information on them.

Right now, I am reading Louisa Catherine: The Other Mrs. Adams by Margery Heffron.

Here are the books I've read so far:
1) Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter--Kate Clifford Larson

Glad to see you are still reading. I was rereading a past post of mine and you had commented on it, so i thought I'd stop by say hi.
