Laura Bush has included Harry Potter in her Christmas decorating at the White House:
Good Morning America:

MRS. BUSH: The theme this year is a Season of Stories. Of course, as an old librarian and a lifelong reader, it was really fun to choose my favorite books. On the mantels we have Harry Potter. On the dining room table, we have Alice in Wonderland.

The Today Show:

Q:I understand this year you’ve chosen an interesting theme, Season of Stories, which is a theme I’m sure near and dear to your heart as a former librarian.

MRS. BUSH: That’s right, as an old librarian and longtime — life long reader. It’s been really fun. I picked books that I particularly loved, Nancy Drew and my newest favorite, Harry Potter, who’s back here over my shoulder.

Q Oh, cool.

MRS. BUSH: I read all the Harry Potter books, all five of them, this summer and it was like finding a great mystery writer and having that whole body of work to read at once. I really loved them.

Thanks to all of the TLC readers who sent in links!
