Mailbox Monday is still on tour, with January’s spot being at Rose City Reader.

Secret Lives of the First Ladies: What Your Teachers Never Told You About the Women of the White House by Cormac O’Brien (PBS)

       With chapters on every woman who’s ever made it to the White House, Secret Lives of the First Ladies tackles all of the tough questions that other history books are afraid to ask: How many of these women owned slaves? Which ones were cheating on their husbands? And why was Eleanor Roosevelt serving hot dogs to the King and Queen of England? American history was never this much fun in school!

I received this book off of my wishlist on PBS after receiving Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents late last year. Looking forward to reading both of these books.
