What I'm Reading

First the old: I didn't like the Victorian murder book as much as I'd hoped. It just got so weighted down in detail that it seemed to never move forward. Also because there really wasn't enough material even for this 225 page book, the author gets into other murder trials going on at the same time as this one which I really didn't care about.

Anyway,. now I'm reading The Residence and here's what Amazon says:

A remarkable history with elements of both In the President’s Secret Service and The Butler, The Residence offers an intimate account of the service staff of the White House, from the Kennedys to the Obamas.

America’s First Families are unknowable in many ways. No one has insight into their true character like the people who serve their meals and make their beds every day. Full of stories and details by turns dramatic, humorous, and heartwarming, The Residence reveals daily life in the White House as it is really lived through the voices of the maids, butlers, cooks, florists, doormen, engineers, and others who tend to the needs of the President and First Family.
